My Favorite Teacher

I have a new stamp set!
I bought it so I could make a card for someone special.



It's funny... when most people see this cute MFT Pure Innocence Make the Grade stamp set, they think of students. I think of my favorite teacher.


Here are TEN interesting facts about my FAVORITE TEACHER:

1.) My favorite teacher is now an experienced teacher - this is her second year.

2.) While she's never been my teacher in a classroom, I've learned many things from my favorite teacher.

3.) My favorite teacher is creative, fun, and has a serious side, too.

4.) My favorite teacher is not afraid to try new things; to step out of her comfort zone.

5.) My favorite teacher is pretty and kind, too.

6.) My favorite teacher has had multiple articles published. She's an excellent writer.

7.) Never having had a four-legged pet, my favorite teacher longs to own a dog.

8.) My favorite teacher loves to drive around, camp, shop, and chat with friends.

9.) My favorite teacher makes her own sushi. She's a developing cook and does a great job!

10.) I've known my favorite teacher all of her life... she's also my FAVORITE DAUGHTER! She definitely MAKES THE GRADE in my book!


I love you, Brittney!

Hugs and prayers as you embark on this second year of teaching!!!
