Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #36

Good morning! I'm up bright and early again today to keep working on my classroom. Today is my last unobstructed work day. Though, our principal just told us he's going to give us all afternoon Friday and Monday to work instead of sit through endless staff meetings!!! Whoopee! I'm liking this guy already!

I had a little bit of daylight left over after setting up my room to create a card for Mercy's Tuesday sketch. I love the simplicity of her sketch this week and chose to honor it by not using too many layers... At task not that difficult for me. ;)

My new Verve set Budding Blossoms was calling my name, and I love, love, love this flower image from the set. I can't wait to play with it some more and try some fun things! For this one, I kept it simple, stamping it in Tangerine Tango, and adding some jewels for some sparkle.

Now for a little fun! hehe. I made two cards for this challenge, both very similar. I couldn't decide between the two for submittal, so I thought I'd just post both of them. Can you "spot the difference?" :)

These two cards are off to the lovely secretaries in my new school office. These amazing ladies have bent over backwards answering question after question for the all throughout the week. They're made phone calls, sent e-mails, run copies, unlocked my room for me (the past teacher lost the key! lol)... Talk about making me feel right at home! A little flower to go with the flower stamp should do it.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I always get their good side so I'll get special treatment :) I hear ya about the staff meetings...I usually zone out after 45 minutes :)
