I Heart ART!

Here's a card I peeked at the last release, using Carolyn's "Nurse Feelgood" set, made to look my son's art teacher (with long pants), with several of my small images from "Wee Tees" on punched squares tacked behind her and colored them quickly without to resemble children's artwork. I wrote the names of his classmates on each one and added ART with a marker to customize the "I {heart)} my___Teacher" greeting. Last I scribbled in a little "abstract" onto her papers she's holding.

This was such a fun card to make! :)

Our peeks start tomorrow! Happy Sunday!!!

Pure genius, I love it. Saving to my favs. Mel I have got to say I LOVE those metal dots you use, and look for them everywhere is there anyway to put a bug in Ginas ear about carrying them? Also is it Sunday yet? LOL I cannot wait to see what cool and versatile new stamp set you've got coming out.
