Tuesday Morning Sketches #106

It's another fabulous Tuesday Morning Sketches day. This week's sketch is fabulous!! Our sponsor is Chi Chi Memories.

I selected this darling little apple boy for my card. Since I am headed back to work (boo hoo) this week how could I resist not making an apple for the teacher?? I have totally loved my summer and I don't want it it end. Although, I will have to say I miss being with the kids and I can't wait to see them next week.

I wish I had decided to make this card longer, because I really would have liked to make the embossed background larger. From this angle it just looks like swirls, but I used a numbers embossing folder and would have like to show that off a little more - oh well, next time.

I also decided I would take Marie's advice and enter my card into The Paper Players challenge #58 Theme Challenge: School Daze!! I'm glad she directed me to this blog. The DT have some awesome cards that have totally inspired me to create some welcome back cards.

Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to see what you create. Have an awesome day!!
Theresa

I love how your card turned out. You're right, he great numbers embossing is lost, but swirls are good, too. I think everything about this is just adorable!

Thank goodness we still have 3+ weeks before the kids go back - although poor teachers will be back next week. I don't imagine prepping is the fun part of teaching, especially if the weather's still nice!
Love the glow on your little apple man - he's so cute! And what a fantastic way to attach the sentiment, I love it :)
