Teacher Appreciation Card


I am so excited to bring you my Simply Sassy card today - she is one of my favorites - but then I probably say that with each new stamp that I ink up! haha I received my Set 6 last week and couldn't wait to ink up Winking Student just in time for Teacher Appreciation Week! I paired her up with some of my FAVORITE October Afternoon papers and colored her with copics. I kept it pretty simple but I think that's why I love it because the gorgeous image is in the spotlight. I wanted to color blond hair today but I didn't want it to be super yellow so I used a new combination for me, let me know what you think!

I am LOVING my time with Simply Sassy - the girls are so awesome and just a blast to chat with from day to day. I can't say Thank You enough!

I love the way you've used these papers - the lined paper making me think of na exercise book, the apple pattern being brilliant with the apple of the image & that red lace is very striking. The image really does have the focus of attention here & I think here clothes & "sneakers" are just so right - that gym slip kind of boarding school girl who's always got her books with he& is good at everything.

And yes - I like the Strawberry blonde.
