Apples for my teacher...

I made another teacher themed card from some scraps and came up with another layout that I love! I used Karen Lockhart's cute Itty Bitty Apples again which were colored with Copic Sketch markers in greens and reds. Glossy accents give them a shiny appearance. I used the *for my teacher* sentiment from Papertrey's Vintage Picnic set. For the blackboard look, I stamped the word teacher and the apple(from PTI's Teacher's Apple) onto True Black cardstock using Fresh Snow ink. The polka dots on the side of the Ripe Avocado card base are from Polka Dots Basics II.
For the fun October Afternoon apple circles, I used my Spellbinder's Circles Nestabilities die template to cut them out. I used a tiny bit of adhesive to place them on my card front, then used my sewing machine to secure them down, using a wavy stitch pattern by just moving my card back and forth as it fed through the machine.
This is such a fun card to look at...lots of teacher themed elements like the apples, the basic circle shapes, the chalkboard and the colors. Hope you enjoy!

Cute as ever. Oh Mish!!! Have you seen the new Pottery Barn catalog? There is a 3 tiered galvanized stand that has your name written all over it! Check it out - it's toward the end of the catalog. It has my name written on it too, so I think I'm going to slurge and get one.

Where do you get your October Afternoon apple paper? We have lots of apples on our trees and I would love to get some of this paper and no one around here carries it.
