I'm doing a two for one today which considering I have trouble doing a one for one challenge I'm somewhat pleased with myself. So I am doing the CASology cue card - Word AND the OLW A-OK
I will be totally honest, I stamped this card and then saw both of these challenges. Shhhh that's just between you and me right? I'm just glad to be cranking out some cards again and posting them.
Second confession - I changed this card after I took this picture. To be honest I was quite happy with the plain black on white but I just kept niggling that I wanted another step to it... some color. So I got out a modern square border and inked it up and UGH! It pretty much obliterated the sign language! I will be honest, I sent it anyway as I had already written the note on the inside and my son won't care it is a note from home. Of course I *cough* accidentally *cough, cough* forgot to take that picture!!
Part of the inspiration for this is that my eldest attends Rochester Institute of Technology which is also the National Technical Institute for the Deaf with 10% of the student body being deaf, so he has learnt his alphabet so far and a few choice words that I'm probably not going to share in polite company. It really does add an extra, unique dynamic to an already great school. So that is my "A" = American Sign Language for the OLW challenge.
ETA - and yes it does say "hello"
