Yesterday, before heading outside to spend a long day working in my flower gardens, I sat down to make a thank you card for my son's teacher. I realize that this is not your "run of the mill" teacher appreciation card, but then again, my son's 4th grade teacher is not your "run of the mill" teacher. He's cool and fun, and there's not a kid in the school who doesn't absolutely adore him! He *loves* science, so Boris, A Muse's mad scientist, along with his jars of spiders and lizards, makes a perfect thank you card for Mr. Edkin! And it just so happens that this card qualifies for Heather's Share Your Spark Friday's challenge to make a card using at least 7 different things! I don't get to play along with her fun challenges as often as I'd like to, so I'm thrilled to get the chance to play this week!
Do you have A Muse's Personal Stationery Set? If you don't, you NEED it! The little black tacks, the numbers along the edge, and the dotted line are all from the set, and they helped me to create the look of a Mad Scientist's journal! How fun is that?
