Paper Players In Honor of Teachers!


The Paper Players color challenge just reminded me of blackboards and late summer apples! I am creating some cards to send to my teacher friends as they go back to school to encourage their hearts as they step into the lives of children. They do make a difference. I can tell, because I am a substitute and I so admire each teacher as I attempt to cover their classes! So this card is in honor of all teachers heading back to the classroom. It is a retired "apple" set inked up in Cherry Cobbler with a touch of Crumb Cake for the stem and leaf. The fun punch adds a flavor of classroom and I created the little ribbon by cutting out a thin strip, adding some fake stitching, not very good cuz I wanted to get this card posted~ A strip of sticky strip holds the fake ribbon on. I used the new DSP Newspaper Print and Love Letter as well. A button adds a touch of homemade love! Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings and Joy!
