MTSC39 Thank You Mrs K!!!

Today's card has been made for my son's teacher who is leaving to go on Maternity Leave. (It is the end of 3rd Term for us in Australia and he will have a substitute teacher for the final term.) Normally I make thank you cards at the end of the school year - this one is just a little early. She is expecting her baby boy in 6wks time and we wish her all the best and our prayers will be with her! (Oh - and yes, I did spell her name correctly!! :) ) I was inspired by Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge this week - what a fab sketch!!!

I started with a white base, layered with Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and some Bella Rose DSP. The vertical panel is more RHR with both sides punched with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Punch and layered with more Bella Rose. The main panel has been stamped using JustRite Stampers 2" Center and Font Set - using the flower centre and creating a personal good-bye message for my son's teacher. It was all stamped in Jet Black Stazon, coloured with markers and cut out with Circle Nestabilities and mounted on RHR cut with Blossom Nestabilties. I finished off by adding some Kaisercraft Snow pearls to both the vertical panel and each side of the sentiment panel and using a 1" White Satin Ribbon across the bottom, creating the bow using my Bow Easy (I LOVE this tool!!! :) ).

Stamps - JustRite 2" Centre and Font Set

Paper - White, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Bella Rose DSP
Ink - Jet Black Stazon
Accessories - Markers, Blender Pen, Large Circle Nestabilities, Blossom Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Border Punch, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, 1" White Satin Ribbon, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)
