Teacher Appreciation from ODBD

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate my boys' teachers.  It is a hard hard hard job!  I am thankful that they have been blessed with good teachers in a great school. I can't imagine the time, energy, and love they pour into our kids - THANK YOU, teachers!

If you feel the same way about the teachers in your kids' lives, you'll love this month's release from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I used the stamp set Class Act to make this simple but heartfelt card.



I first stamped in memento black ink and used Copics to color my stack of books.  I embossed in white on black card stock this quote for a chalk board look - not that the kids' classrooms use chalkboard nowadays.  :)  I smeared a bit of white ink around just to get the used look of a chalkboard.  I nested two square dies to make a frame and colored it with different shades of brown Copic markers for a wood grain look.  Finally I added some Crystal Effects to make my apple pop with a shine.
