wsc21 file folder card October 1, 2007

Filed under: weekend sketch challenge — mjalbright @ 10:33 am

Definitely a challenge!!!  When I saw the sketch for this weekend, I instantly thought that I had to make something that would flow & coordinate with the look of a file folder.  It would have to be office-like with a twist of my style — that was hard since my style is fun and whimsical. 

This is what I came up with for Beate’s wsc21:

I am sending this card to Ethan’s teacher who just retired.  He attended our High School’s Child Development class.  I took him 2x/week so he could interact with other children and the high school students would “study” them.  I was so hesitant to send my little man due to my very protective attitude:)  She was the best teacher and I felt very comfortable letting him “hang out” with the big kids.

Here is the inside of the file folder card.  I added a pocket to the inside bottom portion of the card and inserted a pic of my son.   How stinkin’ cute right???
