Mr. Monster Talks!

Friday, August 6, 2010

Happy Weekend! I need to enjoy myself for the next couple of days since I have to be back at school on Monday. So much to do! I still don't know how I want to decorate my classroom this year...sigh....but back to some creative fun!

Here's a fun card that I just finished with a cute little monster embellishment. I wanted to keep the design clean so that he stands out more. I designed this card after I "Cased" out another designer. I "cased" Agata over at the Cas-tastic Challenge blog. To see her cute monster card please click HERE.
 I had fun by putting on the words "Are you talking to me?". I'm a junior high school teacher and teens really love to say this to each other or to a teacher when they get caught doing something wrong. Gotta love those teens! I think this card would be great to give to a teenage boy!

The little monster is made by a company called Paper Crate. I love his orange and kind of rustic color.

This is so cute! I love your little monster! This is my first August in 30 years that I am not getting ready for school. What do you teach? I taught 1st grade for 22 of those years. I would be setting up my home visits right now. Now there is only one teacher left in the district that makes home visits. I know I am going to miss my job but the drive and the politics just is too much.
