An Apple for Teacher - MMSC-69

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!!

Since this is Labor Day Weekend and my creations are all a Labor Of My Love for card making, I thought it only fitting to announce a new addition to my stamping family. I have been invited to design for “Fred She Said” Digital Designs. I am so excited about this because I have been a huge fan of this company’s images for almost a year now. And what an honor it is to be on this team.

For those of you that follow my blog, you know that I have a passion for flower images. And Tracey Miller, owner of Fred She Said, designs the most beautiful flowers, most of which also come pre-colored. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.

So, onto my card. I used a newly released Digi Image from Fred She Said called An Apple for Teacher. This is a fabulous image for that favorite teacher in your life. This card can be used for any occasion, Birthday, Thinking of You, Get Well, Congratulation, or any other time you’d send a card to someone who’s a teacher in anyway.

This image comes with images to print six different ways.

I printed this image once, then printed just the book and apple twice, colored them with Copic Markers, cut them out and layered with foam tape.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

The inspiration for this card came from a sketch From Midnight Madness. I love playing along with their fabulous sketches every Tuesday.

I hope you all have a SAFE and wonderful Holiday Weekend. We're having the family here for a picnic tomorrow, providing we get the railing on our deck finished by them. After 32 years, we finally decided to add a roof to our deck.
Here's what it looks like right now. It's a long way down if you fall off!!!
