CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!  Our Saturday went very quickly and I don't imagine tomorrow will slow down at all either!  So sad how quickly our weekend's go by!  I'm thankful that next weekend is a "long weekend".  The boys have a PA Day on Friday so they'll be at home with me for the day!!!  I doubt they'll sleep in though!!!

The end of school is drawing near and I know if I don't get the Teacher cards made soon...well, they won't get done!  I decided I had better give it a whirl and this week's sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch was  perfect for the card I had in mind!

I wanted to keep the card clean and simple but had to use the chalkboard technique to create that blackboard effect!  I find it kind of funny since I don't think too many teachers (if any) at our school even use a blackboard!!!  I still think the technique is fun to do and appropriate for teachers!

I love the Perfectly Preserved set and am sad that Stampin' Up! has decided to discontinue it.  I don't think I'll be getting rid of it any time soon!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Crumb Cake
DSP: Polka Dot Parade, Neutrals DSP Paper Stack
Stamps: Perfectly Preserved, Lacy and Lovely
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Gumball Green, White Craft Ink
Other: Cannery Framelits Dies, Dimensionals

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
