Teacher Tag for CTD304, CTS87, TYIC3

Saturday, August 9, 2014

After a long week it felt good to step into my craft cave last night and get busy with some paper and ink.  It was nearly nine o'clock by the time I got in there so I only had time to put this together before the thought of some shut-eye lulled me to bed.  

The palette at Color Throwdown was too pretty to resist as was the CAS(E) This Sketch/Tag You're It combo.  And as the ladies at Color Throwdown are honoring Lori Tecler and her return to the classroom, I made a little teacher tag.



I wish the sentiment showed up a little better because it's really sweet.  It says "thank you for all you do" and I thought it was a really appropriate sentiment for teachers, who probably don't get thanked nearly enough as they ought to be.  

It's a gorgeous summer day here so I'm keeping this short and sweet so I can go outside and putter around the garden.  Then I'll hit the chaise lounge with a good book and spend the rest of the day relaxing.  Summer will be gone soon enough so I have to grab the sunshine while I can!

Thanks for stopping by!
