Thanks, Teacher



Another yummy colour palette from Arielle this week over at ColourQ - not to mention the cool, graphic inspiration picture!  I tried a few different graphic ideas that didn't really cooperate with me so in the end I went with this idea for a teacher thank you card.  I love stamping in VersaMark (and not embossing) to create backgrounds.  Simple but effective.  


I went to yoga this morning which I'm very proud about.  I'm not normally one to stick with exercise routines but I've been going to boot camp on Tuesday nights and yoga on Saturday mornings for a few weeks now.  I'm actually enjoying both as they are small groups and the instructor is lovely while still kicking our butts!  It's exciting to finally be sticking to something.  Long may it continue!  :)

Cardstock:  (Black) Bazzill, (White) Pacon, (Lucky Limeade) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from School Time) PTI
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade) Stampin' Up
Punches:  Corner punch) Marvy Uchida, (1/8: hole punch) McGill

Such a clever card, Jen, as always! Good for you re the exercise! I'm doing Curves and Zumba, after (*&*^ mumble) years, and it's not easy, so I wish you the best in being diligent at keeping it up at your age. You'll be glad you did!!

Awesome card, Jen, boy I wish I could get the sentiments that straight on the lines and evenly stamped! Love your card. Glad you are enjoying your exercise! Thanks for joining us this week at the ColourQ and sharing your card!

Great, clean, card Jen! Love the way you've used the colours, and I too really like the Versamark-stamped background.

Love that versamark apple stamped background!! You rocked these bright colours. :)

Way to go with sticking to your yoga & bootcamp!! My hubby & I started a bootcamp 2 weeks ago and are loving it. I don't want to go beforehand but when I'm done it always feels so good. :)

Love the apple background! I've got to start getting on to some teacher thanks for the end of the year...it'll be here before I know it.
Good for you sticking with the exercise! I've been sticking with Zumba since Jan, and have made it up to 3-4 classes a week, so I know the feeling of pride at NOT QUITTING! It feels even better once you start seeing the difference in your body.

Christina said...

Love how you combined these colors for a teacher thank you! The background stamping looks awesome, and I love the repeated sentiment. Thanks for joining us again at the ColourQ!

Way to go on sticking with the boot camp and yoga! I haven't been to yoga for years but they offer it for free to employees on Tuesday where I work, so I've got to work it into my schedule again. I always feel so good when I do it!
