Kazan's Sketch #46: My Best Work





Happy Thursday! Friday is near!


Here's a little card I whipped up the other night for Kazan's Sketch #46 over at 2S4Y. I used some new Jillbean goodies that Cath sent me for winning the Moxie Fab Color Play challenge awhile back. Gotta love those free goodies! Isn't that little schoolhouse paper just perfect for me to share with a teaching friend?! I have to thank Heather for the inspiration for my pink background from her card here. Isn't the pink so unexpected and fun with the earth tones?


I finished my teacher workshop yesterday...after a rocky start. Two teachers at my table (not the good one who liked my poem!) got into a nasty fight at the beginning of class! They were seriously one step away from "Why don't you make me?" It was like being in school! ha! As for me, a person who does not like fighting and avoids confrontation if at all possible (see why I'm still happily married? ha!), I squirmed in my chair and rotated my head 3/4 the way around...think Linda Blair in the Exorcist...and tried to listen to the teacher. Yup, she was teaching. Crazy! I'll have to remember to tell you next time about my post office experience on Monday, yup, when they were closed for President's Day...


Okay, is it too early to start the Spring Break countdown?! I think not! 17 more school days!


Thanks so much for coming by...and listening to my rambling! Hugs and happy stamping!

LOL, what were they fighting about? Something totally ridiculous?

Really cute card Angie! Love the papers and the stitching. The teacher situation would've been so awkward (but good watchin', lol)!

Juanita said...

What a pretty card. The pink is the perfect little POP.
You should have changed tables at the break so you did not have to sit with the crazy ladies.
