I'm On a Roll!

Wow! My third post today! I guess this is what happens when I have a busy week and can only really take time to craft on the weekend.

This card was made for The Challenge #36 and Simon Monday Challenge.

Okay, so you may think I'm crazy, but I really did use the Challenge's inspiration photo. The challenge is to celebrate teachers. Well, I'm a licensed teacher and I come from a long line of teachers in my family and most of my friends are still teachers. My husband's job has us moving A LOT, so it's very hard to maintain a teaching job when you up and move during the school I'm not teaching...
Anyway, long story short, I truly feel that our teachers are superheroes. Not only do they teach our children, but they are also psychologists, mother/father figures, disciplinarians, and so on and so on. It's one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs a person can have. Even though I don't have any children yet, I can truly appreciate what it is that my friends and family are doing. I think that getting a non-traditional thank you card as a teacher is a wonderful surprise. So...
As a teacher, I know I would have loved to get something like this. It's not a typical apple or pencil card, but I think it conveys thankfulness in a really cute way!
Stamps: Tiny Heroes (Mama Elephant), Wish Big (Mama Elephant)
Dies: Cityscape (Mama Elephant), Tiny Heroes (Mama Elephant)
Paper: Night of Navy, Black, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black, Assorted Copics
Other: White and Gold Embossing Powder, Clear Wink of Stella
I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Wednesday Challenge since it's Anything Goes this week!
