A Good Teacher



Today at Blogger's Challenge our theme is Back to School.  What an appropriate day for this theme as my kiddos went back to school yesterday.  First day of middle school, first day of kindergarten and the little one will be going into the 4yr old Pre-K program starting on Monday at the daycare.

Up until recently I didn't own many school sets, I don't know why, but I never have but I was fortunate enough to be able to work with this set from Clear & Simple Stamps called Teacher.  I love the sentiments in it and hope that this year I will make a few teacher's cards to give away. 


I combined our blogger's challenge with the sketch at Card Positioning Systems this week, I had some scrap cork board that I thought would fit perfectly with the sketch.


Want to join us for blogger's challenge this week?  Create something with the Back to School theme and link up directly to your creation using the linky tools below or at blogger's challenge.  Please mention this challenge and a link in your post and no backlinking to previous projects.
