Hi all! Happy Tuesday! This week hasn’t started off with the best record — my son’s been home sick both days. It’s just a cold, but the poor kid is exhausted from coughing fits that wake him up. Hopefully, he’ll back to full throttle tomorrow! Just in time for us to get some rotten mix of weather tomorrow night! YUCK — I can honestly say I’m over winter. March was always my cut off — even growing up in Wisconsin.
My card needs always step it up in March — my sister, her boyfriend and my mom all have birthdays. April I still get quite a few birthdays. May brings teacher and nurse appreciation days. I decided to get a jump on Teacher Appreciation with this week’s MFTWSC sketch.
I really loved this sketch. I loved the simplicity of it. This will be for my daughter’s teacher. She’s a veteran teacher and is known for being tough, but preparing the kids very well academically. She is also known for being very stylish and dressed to the tee. When I sat down to color my a la mode, I actually pulled out my papers first. I knew I had school themed papers in my stash and these fun ones are from Fancy Pants. I love the pale blue-green with the red. They work perfectly together. My a la mode is colored with Copics and cut out. I deviated slightly from the sketch to add in a sentiment. It’s stamped in Memento Ladybug and cut out with a Fishtail Flags STAX. The little tag features an apple from the Tag, You’re It! set and is cut out with the Dog Tag die-namic.
Inside I stamped the a la mode again in Memento Rich Cocoa with an additional sentiment from the set.
