Ted teacher thanks - Digi Stamp Boutique DT

Hello :o)

I meant to blog this earlier in the week but forgot as usual!  This is the card I made for Dex to give to his teacher, who has done absolute wonders for his confidence this year... he's one of those children who quietly works away, getting top marks without making a fuss and absolutely not pushing himself forward for anything.  His teacher has been brilliant at giving him a bit of a push, telling him his writing skills are amazing and that he'll be an author one day (not sure he actually wants to be, but that's beside the point lol), so much so that he started working on the school newspaper and has been given the 'Editor in Chief' position for next year... he was so pleased with himself!


I've used a sweet ted called First Day at School, along with the Teacher Thanks set, both available from Digi Stamp Boutique at LOTV.  I coloured Ted with copics, the grid paper is a really old one from Doodlebug, the dies are all MFT die-namics, and the 'lined paper' was stamped with a large MFT background stamp in Stampin' Up 'soft sky' ink.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cute Card Thursday - too cute
Addicted to Stamps - make your mark
Simon Says Wednesday - anything goes

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Congratulations to the Editor in Chief! Your boys really do you and Pav and themselves proud. They also have wonderful teachers.
Love this card :). The colouring is superb as always. The clipboard looks great and I really like how you've used a humble paperclip to hold on the teacher's name, a great little design detail. Debra x
