An apple for the Teacher

OK I just have not been paying attention to the time latley.This month has just flown right by me.I realized that I needed to get on making my teacher thank you cards.After all this week two of my daughters will be done school and my youngest daughter is done next week.So I really need to get my butt into gear. 

This stamp from High Hopes has been in my mind for awhile.It's perfect for my teacher card.I used papers from Basic Grey's Hello Luscious. I even paper pieced one the books.I added some flowers and some Maya Road chipboard mini flourishes.I inked the flourishes with Peeled Paint Distress Stains.I then spritzed them with Kiwi Perfect Pearls Mist.I am in love with these sprays!!Check out the close up.The cute little charm is from The Ribbon Girl.


Be sure to stop High Hopes Challenge blog for a tutorial today being hosted by Karen.And you still have time to enter our current challenge-Stars and Stripes.

I actually love to paper piece,but I am a choosy image kinda girl.It's great to be able to,once in awhile , paper piece instead of coloring.But I do recommend a good image to work with.Tiny doesn't always make it easy.LOL
Paper piecing is fun when you get to work with papers that have a great pattern or even a great texture.

So onto my card ,this week we are being sponsored by AI Factory. 

Prize: $10 certificate to store
As you can see I have paper pieced my clouds.The papers are from My Mind's Eye...I think I have been using a heck of alot from this company.LOL.Oh well,love their papers.

DUAL POST DAY...please scroll down.

Howdy High Hope Fans....we're back with another challenge.

So onto my card,I did not go the patriotic theme.Well cause I'm a Canadian girl.lol. I'm pretty sure the only colors I'm allowed to worship is Blue and Green(CANUCKS).I gotta say it's exciting but I also just want it to be over so our life can resume to normal (whatever that may be).

Sorry sidetracked...I used this cutie dragon and combined it with My Mind's Eye paper.I added some die cut stars.I used my white gel pen for all the white dots.                       
I crackled my tire...here's a close up.

Whew,lately I've been making cards for DT or something rather than just for fun.So I just did that today.No reason,well except I wanted to play with this image. I sure had fun coloring up this cutie.I have a thing for bears.They are just so cute.And these images are unlike any other bear I have seen.

Now I know in the past I've said how much I despise making man cards.But I'm pleased with how this one turned out. I finally got to cut my Spellbinder Heritage dies using the pocket watch.I also used buttons but they're inside the card.I forgot to take a pic.OOPS.
I stamped on the background of the image and the strip going  across the card.I used Tim Holtz stamps ,the corner and clock.And the "dad" is Maya Road chipboard with I inked and added crackle to.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges
-Creative Inspirations(Father's Day card)
The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge(Recipe..my buttons are on the inside.oops)

I'm hoping she'll have a boy.lol.Hence my boy card.

This cutie is from High Hopes Rubber stamps,as is the bottle.They have this monkey as a girl as well. Maybe I'll make a girl one as well, then I'm covered. And if she gives birth to a monkey then I'm really covered.LOL.Inside joke,my sis LOVES monkeys.
