ATC Tuesday - Thanks

Good morning everyone and welcome to another instalment of ATC Tuesday.

First things first...can you hear the silence? Isn't it wonderful? The kids are all back at school and I have the house to myself. What a glorious day!

Don't get wrong, I do like summer...the sleeping in, the not having to be anywhere for a certain time, the spontaneity of being able to change plans at a moments's all good stuff.

But let me tell you...those first golden moments of silence once all the kids are out of the house are absolutely divine!

So, today's ATC is a tribute to all the teachers that help keep moms everywhere sane from September to June - THANKS:

I used the direct to rubber technique colouring the image with Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango and Real Red. I tell you, I was SO sad when they retired "Simply Thanks", but I love this new "So Many Thanks" single stamp and I know you will too!

I don't have a square punch the right size to punch out this particular image, so I had to trim it using my Tabletop Cutter. That didn't quite work out the way I would have liked, so I took my scissors to it and trimmed it by hand. Then, I matted it in on a piece of 2 1/4 X 3 1/4" Tempting Turquoise. The Tempting Turquoise was matted onto a piece of Real Red, around which I tied the 5 /8" grosgrain ribbon.

The Tempting Turquoise/Real Red Panel was matted to the 2 1/2 X 3 1/2" piece of Tangerine Tango using Stampin' Dimensionals.

What do you think?

STAMPS: So Many Thanks
INKS: (from markers) Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, Real Red
