Tiddly Inks Challenge #61 - Thank You Teacher

Happy Tiddly Tuesday!!!  Can you BELIEVE that we're already well into August??  I can't!  My DD heads back to school at the end of the month so we've been in full swing getting markers, crayons, a new backpack, lunchbox, pencil case, primary notebooks, etc!  SO FUN!  To me, back to school might be better than Christmas and Hanukkah combined!!!  (I know, I know!!)  There's just something SCRUMPTIOUS about new notebooks, crisp, sharp #2 pencils, a new box of pens....etc.  So this week's Tiddly Challenge was super fabulously fun for me to create!!  Our challenge is to create a Thank You card for a teacher! 
I've used one of my favorite Tiddly Sentiments found HERE.  This Teacher and Kid's sentiment pack is only $1.00 and it comes with so many fabulous sentiments!!  You'll want to grab it up for sure!!  As you can see, I printed my sentiment out on really high quality cardstock and used my Spellbinders Nesties to cut it out.  I backed it with Ouchless Cardboard from Gauche Alchemy - the stuff is FANTASTIC!.  I used my chalkboard alphabet paper in the background, distressed of course to make the letters pop.  My cardbase is SU! as are the green tag paper and the light blue bracket. (both are cut from new MFT Die-namics).  I used my tape measure ribbon (love that stuff), a small crystal flourish and a tiny binder clip as my embellis. 
For the interior, I've used the apple image that comes with the above mentioned sentiment pack.  I printed, colored, coated with my Versamark pen and then heat embossed.  I punched it out and matted it with a pretty red scallop circle.  I also used my SU! corner punch to finish of the interior.
I do hope you've enjoyed my creation today and will come and play along with us right HERE at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog!!
