Inspired by Back to School: To Teach is To Love

 I am so excited to be returning to school next week for professional development and to meet my new students the following week.  There will surely be an opportunity to share a card like this with a colleague in the coming days.

The inspiration photo is adorable:  I was drawn to the tiny chalkboard and to the gingham and knew it was time to pull out Verve's Teachers Count (retired set, but a favorite to be sure).

Love the MFT Sketch and framed the big rectangle to create a chalkboard look.  The sweet Verve heart die created a nice element, but the open hearts conflicted with the gingham.  I swiped the red ink pad used for the apples across a scrap of white card stock and inset the contrasting hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please remember to pray for our students and teachers as school begins.
