The joyful season of Easter is coming to a close for card designers, but April still holds many beautiful treasures! This April, we celebrate the Earth! Look for great eco-freindly designs that honor and celebrate all the great things we love about the earth, nature, trees, animals, the seas, fields, forests and plains. But first, I have a BIG group of April birthday cards to create, and you may see some of them here, like this gem called Inspire.
This card is for a very important person –a teacher! He’s actually much more than that – -professionally and personally. He was an important academic mentor to me as I recently completed my Masters Degree at the University of Alabama, ROLL TIDE! If you look closely, you’ll see the salute to Tuscaloosa, the home of the Crimson Tide here on the card. What makes this professor such a great mentor is his love and passion for the subjects he teaches, something that can be hard to find among so many academia today. William Butler Yeats wrote, “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” I wish him many more happy years ahead as he continues sparking something great in so many of his students, past and present.
Thank you, Professor, and Happy Birthday! Live your life in color!
