#1 Teacher

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess Jessie Rone, continues to issue the challenges.

Apparently it’s back to school time, so make a treat for your kid going back to school, a present for their teacher, or anything back to school related. 

I don't have any kids going back to school .... down here in Australia school starts at the end of January and finishes at the beginning of December. I do need a few cards for my daughter to give to her kids teachers at the end of the year so I decided to make a card that she could use for that.

I created a Pop Stand Card using the new Flower Pot Pop Stand Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs which is being released in August.. I added Poppy the Owl to the Flower Pot and added stamped pencils, alphabet and numbers.

I also added a blackboard and the sentiment #1 teacher.

Here is a close up of my flower pot so you can see everything that I put in it.

Here is a photo of my card half closed so you can see how the flower pot operates in the card.

And finally the front of my card, I added the ABC123 Border Punch along the side of the designer paper and added a sentiment.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
