She did it!


 Doing a happy dance
for a friend of mine who was told she can come back to work next school year! 
She was laid off earlier this year and was frantically searching for a job. 
Being a teacher is hard enough, right? 
 I'm so happy for her.

All supplies PTI.

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*

Dana, I absolutely love the news that a fellow teacher is keeping her job! This card is wonderful. I REALLY need to find that embossing folder...as I love that texture! Also, I love how you curled the corner just a bit. So clever! (as always)

So glad for your friend! My sister went through a similar fate a couple of years ago! Scary. This card however, is so not scary! LOVE it, everything! The distressing, the colors and the tag! Great card friend!

What great news for your friend! The same thing happened to my daughter's Kindergarten teacher. She found out she would be called back to teach just two weeks before school started this year! Thank goodness for a big class!

This is one stellar card, my friend! So bright and cheery and a fabulous layout. Some day that impression plate will be mine! Love it!

Happy card and Happy news too! Love the bright green and poppin' red apples.

Ann said...

LOVE all those sweet layers - and those delicious colours!

Joyce said...

I thought I had already commented, but it looks like I only commented in my head.....I love your card. I like how you integrated the apple stamp/die with the patterned paper, and I LOVE tags on cards. I always think I will try it, and I can never think of how to do it. I'm just going to case this card (if it's EXACT, is it still a CASE?)

Kendra said...

OMG- I love everything about this card. Sooo adorable!

Mara... said...

What a perfect card!!! The apples are great and I love the big tied ribbon.

Meredith MacRitchie said...

Oh, this is AWESOME! I love how you layered your embossed piece, and distressed both - then folded that one corner down. And awesome use of that Tag die!! I love everything!

Jen Carter said...

Love, love, love it!! I'm pinning this to pinterest! This is super adorable! Love how you combined all these elements and now I wish I had the apple die...will add that one to my cart. Love the IP in the background!
