A Gift For A Special Teacher

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors,

The kiddes go back to school next week, but the teacher started back last week.  I had to make something for my very favorite teacher in the whole world, my good friend Jen.

So here it is, a little Teacher's Sign to decorate her classroom door.  It is made with chalk board so it can be erased and written on again.

Here is a picture of Jen with her new Teacher's Sign,  I think she likes it!

This month's challenge on Quick Quotes is to make your own flower.  I wanted to make a Black Eyed Susan, because that is the state flower of Maryland; here was my attempt.

Recipe for this Teacher's Sign:

SVG Cuts Miss Baker's Classroom
Chalkboard - My Minds Eye
Paper - Bazzill solid colors
Silhouette Chipboard
Cosmo Cricket - Jack's World Lessons

Back To School!

Hello Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Wow!  The summer sure did fly by!  I can't believe that it's back to school time already.  Luckily for me; this is where my summer really gets fun!  Since I am retired, the last of August and all of September is when we do the most fishing & crabbing.  The days cool down, the pool water is perfect and the neighborhood gets quiet again.

Here is a card I made for one of my little neighborhood friends.  I won this digital stamp from Creative Playground.   This digital stamp kit is called  School Time Ted and Trudy.  I really love this digital stamp, I fussy cut it on my Cameo Silhouette and because it has such clean lines, it really cut well.  It was very fun to color too!  The kit came with this wonderful background paper!

Recipe for this card:
Digital Stamp - School Time Ted
Copic Markers
Paper - paper that came with digital stamp kit and scrap paper.

Brad - from stash
Sentiment came with digital stamp kit.
