Now firstly, I must explain something about my card. Lots of my friends are teachers, I don't know why they all gravitated towards the same profession, they're friends that I've known since school and some went into teaching at university, whereas a couple of others did something else at uni and started work but then went back and did their PGCE and became teachers. One of my friends has been off work on Maternity Leave and now that the children have gone back after these summer holidays and started Autumn Term, she's had to go back to work. So - this card is for her and it's a bit of a play on words with Fall being the American word for Autumn IYKWIM! Whereas most of the cards are made for children in the Back to School challenges, mine's for the teacher! And for some reason, I've always thought that this Greeting Farm character looks like a teacher - do you see it too??
I'm also putting myself forward for the Basic Grey DT. I've had a bit of a run recently of being successful at securing DT positions (which btw only makes me happier and happier!!), but as most of the DTs I'm on are fortnightly, I've still got plenty of time to spare and how could I not apply to be on the Basic Grey DT??? You might recall a short while ago, I was using Basic Grey papers on every card I made and in the end I had to make a conscious decision to use another paper manufacturer!!! Basic Grey is by far my favourite and I've got pretty much every collection that they've brought out since I got started in cardmaking!! Only the other day, I ordered Pyrus (which I've used here) and Jovial, which arrived super speedily (as always!!) from Bunny Zoes - I LOVE that shop.
Anyway, I think I've waffled on enough for today - here's my card:
|Ingredients: Image - The Greeting Farm coloured with promarkers, Papers - Basic Grey Pyrus, Twine and Lettering - from stash, Charm - Quixotic. Also used - Nellie Snellen die.|
Hope you like today's card (and wafflings - lol!) Leave me some loveliness and fingers crossed for the DT!
