Teachers Touch the Future

I had an enjoyable day here at home by myself.  Now there are a lot of things I could should have been doing but I chose to play in my scrap room as much as I could.  I used the Something Wonderful collection by Teresa Collins to create a school themed card.  Quite appropriate right now, we should have started school on September 2, but we are still in a labor dispute with the government with no end in sight for the near future :(


I used my Silhouette and a Kerri Bradford to cut out the letter background, the apple is a Silhouette cut, the stickers are of course SRM Stickers and the 'teacher' is a PTI die.


I am playing along with a few challenges.

i love this collage card. So many amazing details to look at. Love the abc die cut, the washi and sewing! Really so so great!

sorry about the struggle with school. We need teachers so much! What a different they make and its hard when they aren't appreciated. but also hard when our kids can't go to school to learn! (Cause, i tell you what, Im not teaching them at home ;)

good luck!

Amazing card, Laurel. Lots of great layers with the abs, the tag, the apple and the sentiment. You know how much I like your sewing and the texture it adds. Excellent.

I'm so sorry to hear of the labor dispute. I hope it gets resolved quickly for everyone involved. Best of luck. Teachers are precious people who take care of our precious young people.

Fabulous card! Great collage form. I think it's always a good thing when you do some "wants" instead of "shoulds". Prayers for the school situation to be resolved soon. Thanks for playing at Cupcake Inspirations! Nance, DT
