Thank you Teacher- A new set by Carolyn King to Win!!

Teacher Appreciation here for my kids is next week.  I hold a special place in my heart for them... they have such a tough job and it often goes so unappreciative; and often underpaid.  They spend more hours with your children daily than you do on school days and if they have their own children at home, then they have to go home to tend to their own family! What a job!! I once took the Myers-Briggs test and it stated that one of the jobs that fits my personality was to be a school teacher. I just don't think I can do it! I mean, I love my children, but to spend hours on days with many more of them, that is too much!! LOL!!  I think I could substitute (maybe that is worse??!) but not do it everyday.  The principal at my children's school has a PhD in education and has been doing this for over 40 years!! I applaud him for that! He truly loves what he does to spend every day with small children-but he also has a great outlook about them.  So in honor of them, I have made a card with Carolyn King's new set by Gina K called Nurse Feelgood. This set compliments last years set of Dr. Feelgood, but with this one, it is quite versatile! You can change it around to be a teacher, vet, nurse, PA, etc.  It is a great set so head over to Gina K and check it out!!  And because I support my good friend so much, you will have a chance to win this set!! Just leave a comment and a random name will be chosen May 4th!!

For this card, I used scraps for the pieced bg with a pop of black.  The main image was colored using Copics and is popped up.  I added a little button for an embellishment and the sentiment was punched out using the WW SU! punch and popped up as well.  A simple and quick card!! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek! I know we are all so busy!

Materials Used: Nurse Feelgood, White, Black, Scrap green, Brocade blue, River rock, dimensionals, WW punch, button, Karen Fosters scrappers floss

  7. Thanks for appreciating us!! As a teacher for the past 14 years, we often hear all negative comments such as... "It must be nice to get a good salary for only 10 months of work" or "It must be nice to end your work day at 2:45" No one knows what goes on behind the scenes!! (you do!) I love this set and would enjoy making some gifts for fellow teachers!

  9. I LOVE this stamp set and I really like the card you made with it too. Isn't it great that Cammie designed the nurse's hat to be easily removed so she can be a teacher or something else?

    I would love to win this set. Thank you so much for the chance to win! :)

  14. First, any Mom of twin boys is my hero! I have one son, now 22, who still keeps me on the edge of my seat. My daughter, 27, is a nurse and I can imagine dozens of uses for this stamp set! You made a very cute teacher card with it and thanks for giving us the chance to win. By the way, my birthday is this week . . . .

  19. I, too, am a fan of Cammie's! Your card is wonderful, but what really struck me-brought tears to my eyes, actually-is your commentary on teachers! I am a high school English teacher. I've had a rough few days recently. I always try hard and do my best, and sometimes I feel so unapprecitaed or worse. It means a lot to me that you support teachers and understand how hard they work! Thanks!!
