Mimi is the Teacher's Pet


Penny Black's woodblock stamp "Teacher's Pet" caught my eye this week, as many schools are celebrating Teacher Appreciation day.  I think Mimi is perfect to say "Thank You".
 
I pulled out my Creative Dies to make this background and the chat bubble.

Mimi is colored with Copics and fussy cut and mounted on the Petals diecut background.

Another Mimi colored with Copics and mounted on the Creative Die background Dots.  I added some pennants, and of course the chat bubble for the sentiment.

Just another color combination, using my Copic markers.  I am liking the simplicity of this one.

I think this is my favorite!  I stamped Mimi directly to the circle and  paper pieced the hat and dress.  I kept this little card very simple and could easily have made multiples.  Anytime I can use red and white gingham ribbon, I am a happy stamper.

I am happy that a Teacher Appreciation day has been added to the school calendar.  However, every day should be a day to appreciate the teachers who have the responsibility of ensuring our children can read, write and do their math; along with everything else teachers are required to do!

We just experienced two days of severe storms with tornadoes touching down around us.  It's a scary experience, being at the mercy of the elements!  A week of pure sunshine ahead of us now.

Thanks for popping in!  Mimi and I love visitors!
