Teacher Thanks...A Little Early!

It is so hard to believe that my summer break is almost over!! In less than 2 weeks I go back to work! AHHHH!  I'm not ready yet!!  But I am thankful for my job and I really do enjoy it, so that helps!

With school on my mind, I made a card for my daughter's teacher in anticipation for needing one this coming school year.

I was inspired by a sketch from the Clean & Simple challenge blog.  I used several Whimsy stamp sets that work so well together!  I started with my sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps School Spirit stamp set.  Then, I used various stamps from Whimsy's School Spirit, Smarty Pants & Happy Everything sets.

    My daughter's teacher is a big K-State fan so I went with a purple theme for the card.  That was kind of hard for me being a Jayhawk fan!  The rest of the color scheme was built around the purple.  I find it very difficult for some reason to photograph this particular color of purple, so the colors are a little off in the photo.


    This is the sketch that inspired me from the Clean & Simple Stamping challenge blog.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
