Thank You, Teacher


Still having trouble getting in the groove after a {meh} week last week. So this is just a quick card today to re-insert and play along with two challenges (both new to me) that are ending today: Go Fish! Challenge #3, a color challenge to use orange, yellow, and white, and Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge #99 I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which is an "Anything Goes" challenge.

All stamps are from TradeFish Designs' Back 2 School set, which I was lucky enough to win earlier this month.


Thanks for stopping by!
Emily

Good for you, pushing through & creating anyway. I find that sitting down & just DOING sometimes brings the mojo back. I would have been so stuck on candy corn after seeing that adorable photo, and I love the direction you took it. Teachers don't get thanked nearly enough :)

Cute card! Like the sentiment on the lined paper to match.
It takes a while to get back into the routines after having a super great week with company. Our house is sort of the hub for both sides of the family now since all our parents are gone and, even though I love them all to pieces, it does tend to wear you out. Especially since I am getting a wee bit past young now! Hahaha!!!
Take care and you will probably find a little rest will do wonders. {Hugs} :)

What a sweet image. I get the teachers at your kids school just love getting your little treats. I know it makes a big difference in their life to have someone appreciated them-you are so kind.

Bear Hugs,

So sweet! The ribbon looks so much like the dotted lines of the spelling handbook paper. Glad you found some time to make a card after a 'meh' week. :)
