A Froggie Bday

I've been busy this week with coworker birthdays. We're a small staff so we try to celebrate. This is a card for another one of our male teachers. I kind of followed the sock monkey card so you should see the similarities easily.

Monkeying around

Hello everyone! Long time no post. Sorry that I've been m.i.a. Starting this school year has taken every ounce of energy I have. But I do have a card for you today. The first time I have crafted since school has been in session. It's a real simple card. Believe it or not, it has no cricut. It is the sock monkey stamp from Stampin Up! I colored/painted it in with watercolor pencils.I did cut out a seperate mouth to pop it. This is a boy card for a guy teacher at work. I hope it likes it as well as all of yall. Of course yall can just leave a nasty comment if you don't like it, he can throw it in my face if he doesn't. LOL he would never do that. Thanks for looking. Toodles!

As most of you know I am a teacher. I  have started at a new school this year for at risk youths. This is a brand new school so as a team leader I've been helping to get the school open. I don't ever remember being this tired at the beginning of the school year. So sadly, my blog got pushed on the back burner while we got school started.  I have gotten to craft, but it's all been stuff for the school! I've done name signs for the doors which you see below. I've also have done quotes on my walls, my podium, and the front door of the school. I'm also suppose to do quotes going down the hallways. I will have pictures of that soon.
 I used Locker Talk, Destentations, My World, and Paper Doll Dress Up (the accessories). The font on all came from Lyrical Letters. The wildcat was an SVG. Some of them I used pens to line the cut lines to make them stand out.

Sorry about the glare on these. I didn't take the pictures of these until after I put the clear contact paper on them. You can't lamintate these things. They are too thick because of the layers.
I also had a vinyl project requested by my sis in law. She's an elementary school teacher. I love doing these for her classroom because it's ok to make it all cutesy. I teach middle school and they don't like cutesy.
Again I'm sorry I've been M.I.A. I never knew how much went into getting a school opened. This is going to be one wild school year. Go Wildcats!

I Saw The Sign

I had to finish up one more sign for a fellow teacher who teaches with me. This happens to be her favorite color. Poor dear doesn't know what a cricut is. So she has no idea it's cricut green! That's ok I'm going to educate her soon enough. My school won one of the 500 cricut expressions. I can't wait to teach everyone. *Also sorry about the bad song reference in the title, hehe.*

"Wine" Thank You

As you all know I went out of town this past week for my anniversary. My buddy, Rianne, took care of our home while we were gone. So while we were out, I picked up a special bottle of wine to tell her thank you. This is the thank you card I made her to go with it. I used French Manor for the card and the wine glass. Thanks for looking.

I'm back!!!

Hi everyone! I am now home from my wonderful anniversary vacation. I have to start making some thank you cards tonight. So I should have something to share with you first thing tomorrow morning. I hope you have missed me because I have sure missed you. Of course I have miss my bed the most. LOL.

A Personal Moment

Today is officially my first wedding anniversary. I'm so excited to be married to such a wonderful guy. I just thought I would share a picture with all of you as I reflect on that special day. We are heading to Orlando today to revisit our honeymoon at Disney. :-)
