You Make A Difference ~ Friday Sketchers #55

Friday Sketchers #55

Hi everyone! Today I have my card for this week’s Friday Sketchers to show you! My friend Jacque who represents the USA is hosting this week’s challenge and has created a lovely sketch for us all to follow. We are being sponsored this week by Sir Stampalot.

I am trying to get a head start on all my cards and gifts for my children’s teachers. Since my older two go to a bilingual school, they each have an English teacher and a French one. That means a few more cards for me to make! This is one of my all-time favorite Tilda images. She is from last years School Collection and I thought that paired with this sentiment, I could create a nice teacher card. I am so appreciative of the whole staff at my sons’ school. They are such a caring group of dedicated people. I always like to show them how much I value and appreciate them.

  • Stamps: Magnolia 2008 School Collection, Verve Stamps for Sentiment
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: PaperTrey Plum & Lavender Moon Cardstock & DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers, Copic Airbrushing
  • Embellies: PaperTrey Ribbon, SU Hodge Podge, Hero Arts Gemstones, Filigree from stash

Copic Markers Used: E000, E00, R20, Y26, YR23, YR21, E41, E43, V000, V93, V95, W1,W3, W5, E51, E55

The rest of the Friday Sketchers DT have made such lovely cards once again. You can see all the cards as well as Jacque’s sketch here on our blog. I hope you get the chance to play along this week. I try to get over to as many of your blogs as possible…..some weeks I am more successful that others….but I really love to see all your gorgeous creations! Thanks everyone for making this such a fun challenge!
