Inspire


The Challenge: Create a card for a teacher or coach

The solution: Take this awesome stamp from Serendipity Stamps and color it with Copic Markers, add some beautiful Cappella patterned paper from Basic Grey, dig out my Nestabilities and Fiskars Threading Water punch, pick the perfect Stampin' Up rub-on and top it off with some buttons tied with twine.

Here's to teachers everywhere who give of themselves everyday to make a difference in children's lives. They have one of the toughest and often thankless jobs out there and they inspired me to love the process of learning, to better myself, to get lost in a book and to shoot for the stars!

Visit Amy, Anya, Lynda and Jenny to view their creations!

What a great teacher card Kathie - and I love your shout out to the teachers! My 3 daughters run the gammut from super smart student to super challenging student - and their teachers have done a great job on all of them!
