You're The Best Teacher

Hey There!

I am on my way to knocking out those teacher cards for my son. I have several to make, and I want them to be different. As I talked about in yesterday's post. I have this paper pack I have had for years, and it just goes on forever! Reality is, I have one child and only so many school years left, so I am trying to use it all up as much as I can. I am not a waster, so I use and save all my scraps. Ha! I then recycle anything that can't be used.

More than anything it's fun to pull out your supplies and challenge yourself to use them in various ways.

I used a tag dye and added a scrap of the bus patterned paper to the top. Really working on that stash in multiple ways ha!
I used the same sentiment builder from School Basics by Mint Motif and an apple dye from MCT. The Teacher dye was from PTI. It was lots of fun building this card for a teacher who deserves it very much. Not many Middle School teachers get the appreciation that the elementary level does and I think they sometimes need it more. They teach roughly 150 students per day. 

 I am sharing at: Lil Patch Crafty Friends - Anything Goes, D.L. Art - May Linky, Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes,  Creative Fingers Challenge - Anything Goes, Crafty Creations - Anything Goes, Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything Goes with a die cut, Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes, Wednesday's Creative Challenge Blog - Fussy & Fancy, Four Crazy Chicks - Crazy Egg/ATG

Love a scrap busting project! Something so intensely satisfying for using up all those little bits. I try to challenge myself to do the same, whenever I can. This is just adorable!
