Teacher Appreciation Challenge

Since my DS is only two I don't have the need for teacher gifts. But, that didn't stop me from entering the Digital Tuesday Challenge this week! Challenge #5 Thank a Teacher.

The challenge was to make a project for teacher appreciation week. I thought this would be a good opportunity to use my "Number Collage" embossing folder. I am trying to incorporate more embossing into my work. Mainly because I bought the Cuttlebug and I want to get my money's worth! :)

Since I don't really have any teacher themed stamps I decided to sketch out this little lightning bug. I thought he would fit the sentiment perfectly. I drew the lines around the yellow cardstock with a black marker. (Marvy) The fibers are from a $1.99 hot spot pack I got at Archiver's. I also wrote out the sentiment by hand. I don't know if you can tell, but I added a little sparkle to his wings with my glitter dust pen.

I don't know if I'll be able to work on anymore projects today, but at least I finished one challenge! :)
