I think this is the only stamp I own that has a school theme, it's a House Mouse stamp that I bought at my local craft store, I wanted to provide you with a link to the House Mouse on line store but I couldn't find this particular one.
Anyway, as you can see, this adorable image presents you with what, I think, ALL Teachers will be facing this new school year, whether the kids are little or big, there is always a few that just wont pay attention, goof around, fall asleep, etc. creating for the Teachers big challenges every single day.
One thing I must say, all Teachers deserve our outmost respect and admiration, they are in charge of educating and preparing our kids and grandkids for LIFE. I read a quote in one of my grandchildren's classrooms one day that I went to visit for Grandparents day, it goes like this:
"I TOUCH THE FUTURE.....I TEACH!!!!!"
Totally true, so keep all teachers in your thoughts, every day.
Here is a close up of this sweet scene.
I hope you can see the writing on the "blackboard", that was done by me, using a fine brush and some SU white craft ink, notice the little drawings, letters and hard "math", but also notice that little guy chewing on the pencil and that other one scratching the board, sheeesh!! do you remember that noise that made your hair stand on end? I get goose bumps just thinking about it. Here is another close up of the rest of this mischievous but adorable little mice.
The Teacher's look is one of patience and love, the year had just started and she knows there is more of this antics to come. Look at that cutie pie chewing gum, that other one yawning and that other one doing a flip, this little mice are just adorable.
So, I hope you like this card, I didn't add any embellishments since the image itself is so darn cute, I didn't think it needed any and besides, this stamp is big so there was not enough room.
This image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil, the flowers and grass were done with SU makers and an aqua painter.
I want to thank you for stopping by, please leave your comments, I love reading them and of course, if you have any questions, I'm here to answer it.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
