I Love My Teacher

I have a few friends who like to stock up on cards for the year, so I try to make sure I have a good variety for them. While my fur herd doesn't attend school, I have several friends with children who do. I though the MelJen's verse worked perfectly layered on the Phooka chalk board.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #42
Color Inspiration ~ Coulour Create Challenge #65 ~ 3 Fruits
We are to use at least 3 of the fruit colors as inpiration. I was inspired by several: Melon, Apple, Banana, Kiwi, Pineapple, Papaya, Coconut
You don't need to show a book to be inspired by reading, do you? Whenever I remember school and teachers I think of LOTS of reading ~ and I loved it!

  5. Oh, that's a super card. It's always good to see a card without a cutie on it. Thanks for taking part at The Crafty Pad this week.
