A Lesson or Two

Hello friends,
I have a card with sweet little Tilda for ya today.  I have a couple of amazing artists in one of my Spanish classes who have been asking & asking me to show them how I color with Copics. So I brought my markers to school along with this Tilda image. Thank goodness my coloring turned out OK cuz it made me so nervous to have the girls watching me color!!! THE PRESSURE! haha :) But I think it's good for our school kiddos to see that we have interests & talents of our own outside of the classroom. Through those experiences, we as teachers become real people to them. I think some of them think we're hermits with no lives that live at school or something! Anyhoo, so I had a colored image but what to do with it??? Make a card for sweet Tilda to adorn, of course :)
Here it is:
 My good friend's birthday is coming up so I decided to make this card for her. This stamp is called Tilda with Hawaii Flower. I luv all the little butterflies fluttering all around her. I added Stickles to all of them so that they would match the one I added on the corner. The flowers are all WOC. The papers are from the Little Darlings Collection from Graphic 45.

Here's a closer peek:
The girls were very excited to become new Copic Coloristas... until I told them how much they cost! TeeHee! So they said "¡Mucho dinero!"--->they'd stick to pastels for now ;)

Tilda will be playing along in the following challenges:

JUGS: Challenge #128 Pink, spring moss, cream
The Sweet Stop Sketches: SSS150 with a spin of green
Just Magnolia: Green
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes: Photo Inspiration (it's sooo preeetty!)

Thanks so much for peeking today.
Just a few more sleeps till the weekend!

    I agree that our students enjoy seeing us as humans. Whenever my students see me at a store, they stare and whisper. I guess they are stunned that I get out of the building sometimes!
