Best Teacher Ever


Happy Friday eve!  What's happening in your next of the woods?  I'm off today for a minor out patient procedure so it will definitely be a day of relaxing after I get home from the doctor's office.  It's homecoming week at our school as well so we'll likely be heading to the homecoming parade tonight and the football game tomorrow night.  I loved the back to school challenge over at Curtain Call and the apple challenge over at CASology.  I had made this card several weeks ago and had fun masking the various stamps to create the card.  A great card for my stash for teacher thank yous. I love Moe's Verve Teacher's Count Set...all the stamps are from that set.

While I'm here, I thought I'd share another card I created on Monday inspired by this amazing card that Laura Bassen created.  Happy sigh...I love all of her cards, but this one jumped out at me and was immediately pinned for future inspiration!

Would love to know the name of the company that makes that tree die. It looks more natural than most tree dies I've seen around.

Love the colors on the second card.
