Thank you teacher

There are some gorgeous new images at Digi Stamp Boutique that are perfect for teacher thank you cards.  I've used the lovely Louie and Apple to make Morgan's card for his teacher...




I've coloured Louie with promarkers, and I was very happy to at last find a colour combo that works for me for colouring bears!  I actually like how my bear turned out for a change :o)  You might not like it, but if you want to try it the colours are - Raw Sienna, Mustard, Pastel Yellow and Vanilla (on Elegance Satin card from Joanna Sheen).  I spent all morning trying different colour combos out and it's really quite sad how excited I was when I finally got it lol!

The papers are Cosmo Cricket, with black and red cardstock from Papermill Direct.  The flower is my usual Memory Box cherry blossom die, with a pearl brad centre.  The corner was cut with a Whimsy die, the buttons and red pearl are from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I've not really done anything to tell you about today - I've been waiting in for hubby's new monitor to be delivered... it's his birthday in a couple of weeks and that's what he's chosen as his 'big' prezzie, and he now owes me something big for my birthday lol.  Hope you've had a lovely day, will be round to do some catching up later :o)
