First day

Well, the little darlings have gone back to school here in the UK. My BIG darling is back to Uni in a couple of weeks and his Girlfriend, Laura, had her first day at School yesterday...as an Infant School Teacher!!

This is the card that I made for her


I paid a long overdue visit to Saturated Canary for Tammy Pie whose resemblance to Laura is uncanny. She was coloured with Promarkers and I added the snippet of Farmer's Market paper, that came from my scraps, to add a bit more colour. I typed a sentiment inside which read
" Teachers change the world...one child at a time!".
I am reliably informed that she loved it and that she ended her first day in one piece!!

One or two challenges to play along

Thank you for sharing your day with me xx

Hi Sarah,
oh this is so perfect for the occasion.
I love that image, and your have coloured it so perfectly.
Wonderful designing as usual.
Isn't it just lovely to find a image that's just what you meed, and as you say looks like the wonderful young lady.
The snippet of lovely paper just finishes it off.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Oh Sarah, this is an absolutely beautiful card. I can't think of anything to say because I love everthing about it...your wonderful colouring, your gorgeous and stylish CAS design and the sentiment you chose which has bought an early morning lump to my throat...Just stunning in everyway...
Happy Thursday!

Both my boys are about to go to Uni - eldest Yr 2 Youngest Yr 1! eeeeek empty nesters! (who are bankrupt! (-;)...)

That looks like a perfect card for the son's girfriend Sarah and the paper echoes the apple image perfectly.

My daughter is head of ethics at her school and I often joke with her whatever happened to the apple for teacher when she comes home with chocolates and wine from students - yes wine.

Sounds like the perfect image for a perfect card. I'm sure Laura loved it - and I'm sure your son loves the fact he's still on holiday while Laura has started work! Hope all's well with you guys. Things fine here too! Jx

Fab card Sarah and best wishes to your son's girlfriend on her new post. Whose more scared her or the kids?
My daughter went back on Tuesday, no kids but a new classroom to decorate after the builders have left a blank canvas.:)

Oh my word she is just as CUTE as can be Sarah!! LOVE the coloring on this image and your CAS design is just perfect!! She'll love this card!! :) Happy Friday!!

MaryH said...

What a delish card to make for a young teacher to start school. Love the dp at the top and that very chic young lady with her specs. I bet you'll enjoy the quiet since your 'student' has returned to college too, although I know you miss them at first. Enjoy Monday. I'm waiting (not so patiently) for Acorn to show it, and also got the dvds preordered. Will be watching Arthur & George Sunday night on Masterpiece Theater. Have seen it on youtube, but was hard to watch it that way. TFS & TKs for watching Doc for me. Hugs.
