Thanks for Everything
YAYYYYY!!!!! I finally got my butt into my still disheaveled scrap room and managed to get this Thank You card made for my daughter's teacher. She is leaving the school this year after graduating from eighth grade. Her teacher has been her teacher for two years in a row and he's been such an inspiration to her. She asked me to make him a card and she's written him a lovely letter to put inside as well :)
Since my scrap room is still home to living room and kitchen belongings I tried to keep this card simple as I have three more cards to do by Monday - Yikes!! It might end up being two!! I used Basic Grey's Oliver dp and Stampin Up's Ivory and Coredinations Nostalgia cs. The stamp is CTMH's A Litte Everything and the button is also from CTMH. For the Thanks image I used Ranger Distress Ink in Peeled Paint and Broken China. The front image was distressed and then I added Pumice Stone Distress Ink to the edges. On the inside I used Stampin Up's Old Olive ink and marker. I also finally got to use the piercing tool from CTMH and Mat Pack from Stampin Up on the front image.
I must say it sure felt good to be creating again!!
I'm entering this card in Catch the Bug's Challenge "It's A Man's World" (anything manly)
