Just Us Girls #309 - Word Week

Hi friends!  I'm the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls for our Word Week challenge.  I chose the word APPLE because school is starting up and I thought it was appropriate.
 
I wasn't sure what I had in apple stamps, so this was a challenge for me!  I did have PTI's Teacher's Apple stamps set, so I put that one to use (and it's never seen ink either!).  Very simple card.  Everything is stamped.  I popped up the banner and main panel with fun foam.  The front of the card base was given some texture with a linen impression plate.  I like the sentiment...I thought I'd give my profession a shout-out.  We sometimes are given a bad rap! ;-)
 
 I chose to use the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
 
You can see more from our JUGs design team and our new guest for September, Melissa Dawn Lane on the Just Us Girls blog
 
Thanks for stopping by!
