Teacher Appreciation - My Creative Time Alumni project ❤

Happy Friday!!

So super excited to be back on the My Creative Time blog today as an
Alumni Guest Designer!!  How cool is that?

Since it's teacher appreciation week, I decided to create a project 
for this special occasion....

My card base is made using the new Bunch of Stitched Star Dies.  I added the sentiment
from the new You're My Hero Stamp Set which was ideal for a teacher.  The word "teacher" comes
from the Love To Learn Dies + Stamps as well as the apple die.  Then for the
Chalkboard "ledge", I used the window sill die from the Stitched Window Dies & Accessories
and I love the way the apple and the word "teacher" just sits on it.
Using white ink and a dauber,
I distressed the black paper to give it the "chalkboard" appearance.

The pencil holder is a recycled candle jar that I cleaned out.  I wrapped Stampin Up
ribbon and using a medium clothes pin, I added the
tag which I made using the XL Label Die and Stitched XL Label Die.  The sentiment
is Enjoy the Little Things Stamp Set also from the new release.
I glued a piece of twine to the clothes pin, as well as the card, to bring a little more
 yellow to the project.
Thank you Miss Emma for having me back
as an Alumni Guest Designer for My Creative Time!!
I sure had a great time!!

Now I leave you with a few close up pictures of the projects.
