Three Cheers for Teachers!!

Happy Sunday Evening All!

I had a few moments to create in my cave this evening and wanted to be sure and play along with the current Dare To Be Sassy challenge over at Sassy Studio Designs.

This week it's a Labor Day theme.  
Create a card or project representing a profession or type of work.

Well, Labor Day has always meant the start of a new school year to me, so I've created a card for a teacher! I've left the inside blank so it could be used any time throughout the year to relay a message.

This was truly a QUICK creation.  I colored my Sassy Studio Designs 'Professor S' Sassy using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and did some fussy cutting with my Fiskars swivel craft knife!

My background paper as well as the chalkboard image and sentiment are from Craft Secrets.   I've simply popped up 'Professor S' with xPress It Foam Mounting tape to give her a little more dimension.

A few additional challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Glitter n Sparkle - Anything Goes
Creative Inspiration Paint - Anything Goes
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Back to School
Milk Coffee Challenge - Back to School
Crafts 4 Eternity - Back to School

Well, hubby's not feeling very well so I'd best go spend a little time with him to see if I can do anything to make him feel more comfortable.  Nothing serious ... mainly just a summer cold, but sometimes those can be the worst!!  He's an excellent patient so I really don't mind 'waiting' on him!  

Have a fabulous evening and as always  . . .
