Owl See You in Class: TCM preview


Good morning!

I'm back with another card to share today for The Craft's Meow August release previews.  Today, we have another adorable owl stamp set designed by Jenny Suchin.  This one is called Owl See you in Class and it works perfectly with the Owl be thinking of You set we showed off yesterday.  Since I'm heading back to teaching elementary school in just a few short weeks, when I saw Jenny's two sets for this month, I literally squealed with delight!  I know I'll be getting lots of use from them and think you will too!  (Remember all the August stamp sets will be available for purchase on August 1st in The Craft's Meow online store.)

I combined the two sets to create this card, thinking of my two 'little' students at home.  I can't believe Isaiah will be a freshman (!!) and Ashley is a 5th grader!  They are so excited about my teaching and can't wait to help me get my classroom ready for school - I know they'll be my helpers this year and I'm so thankful for their great attitudes and willingness to help me when and where they can.  I will be teaching the 1st graders cursive writing throughout the year, so it was fun handwriting the word 'student' on the lined stamp image - although to be honest, my handwriting will need lots of work this year along with the students!  lol!
