Thanks to you...

Hi guys!

When I sat down to create yesterday, I had a pair of new TGF stamps staring at me from my desk top. Cheeky Lessons in particular was working very hard to get my attention so I simply had to ink her up for my card. I altered her just a bit by wiping away her winking eye before stamping and then tracing in a different Cheeky's open right eye. Once she was looking all bright eyed and bushy tailed I decided to check out what challenges were going on this week to see if I could play along. The Farm Fresh Friday challenge is to use dies or punches and luckily I had just enough time to get a card entered into it.

Looking through my papers I came across the 9 to 5 paper pad which took me away from seeing Cheeky Lessons as a teacher and more as an office assistant ala Mad Men. So I ran with that idea and even found the perfect edger die to create the look of a file folder tab for my sentiment. If you can't tell, I had a ton of fun putting this entire scene together. :)

Okey dokey, time for me to skedaddle.
