Sundae Bar Challenge!

Happy Sunday!  This week's challenge over at Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog they have opened the "Sundae Bar".  Topping include the colour cream, blue, distressing and pearls.  To play along you just need to use at least two of the four toppings!  If you use more, that's great too!  Our Sponsor this week is Elizabeth Bell so be sure to participate, you could win 2 digital stamps of your choice!

Here is the Valentine card that I may for the Munchkin's teacher.  We just adore this woman, partly I think because she reminds us both of my mother.  You cannot walk into the room where this woman is without smiling and she just radiates love and warmth.  Plus, she's a stickler for rules and time management which is great for a fourth grader to learn!!  LOL!!

I used cream, blue and pearls.  My image is "i love school" by Elizabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy and this is the first time I've been able to ink her up.  I bought her specifically because I loved her glasses (both my girls wear glasses) and I new she would be useful for cards for teachers.  My blog friend Lee-Ann will be pleased to see all of my paper piecing...check out that cute matching purse and headband!

I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday as my inspiration for the layout.  I couldn't figure out where to put a sentiment, so I decided to just leave it off the front and put it on the inside.

I am happy that the Munchkin is going to be able to put a little message of her own in here.  Although the paper looks black here, it is actually a very dark blue. 

Well, we're off and running today.  The Rock Star is headed to her "boyfriend's house" for a play date and I will be taking the Munchkin and a friend and my knitting to the local pool for a swim.  Thank goodness they are old enough I don't need to get wet!  Then, we have a piano recital tonight for the Munchkin.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Stamps:  Elizabeth Bell Back2School Collection: School accessories, i love school, No1 teacher sentiment
Paper:  Pink Paislee 365 degrees collection, CTMH Outdoor Denim, Parchment, Cranberry
Ink:  Copic Markers, Memento Black
Accessories:  Spellbinders Hearts & Scalloped Hearts, Pearls, Misc. Ribbon, SU punch to make it look like school paper on the inside.
