Teacher Appreciation

Posted on

I used a Bugaboo stamps digital image to create this teacher appreciation card for my daughter Sam’s math teacher. The math equation stickers have been in my scrap booking stash for years, so I don’t remember where they are from. I used Copic markers to color the little boy and to add the Y for Yulee Middle to his shirt and I added a little bling to feminize the overall feel of the card. The sentiment is hand written with a white gel pen. Hopefully her teacher doesn’t know that the next verse of this childhood song is “No more tables. No more chairs. Push the teacher down the stairs”!

Ah….the good old days….when my friends and I would chant this song at the start of every summer vacation.

I made another card along the same vein for Sam’s science teacher. You can see that I used different stickers that have more of a science theme. Ms. Nowlin has fish in her classroom and loves Marine Biology so I had to stick the fish tank on there too!

I am entering the top card in Digi Darla’s Challenge DDC #13 “Let’s Celebrate!” & a DT Call and also in Simon Says Stamp’s Anything Goes challenge.

Here is a close up of the sentiment. I just wish it looked a little more like chalk.

Happy Stamping,

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!

  8. As a teacher, I have to say that sounds like the most UNappreciative sentiment ever!!! what were you thinking? I remember singing this ditty as a kid, as well, and it’s clearly about how you hate school and your teacher, why would you think that it showed appreciation?

    • It was sincerely in jest and I can assure you that the teacher who received this card had a tremendous sense of humor. Thanks for caring enough to comment.
