Make It Monday Sentiment Grounding

Hello friends : )

I can't believe how long it has been since I was able to play along with Make It Monday.  But here I am with a card to meet the challenge by Lexi Daly this week to use sentiment strips to group images : )



I had a little trouble getting a clean photograph today.  I have popped up my "teacher's pet" with foam dots and no matter which way I turned she created a shadow on my polka dot background  grrrrr. IRL the card base is stark white with soft turquoise polka dots - no gray! trust me : )

I am also adding this card to the following challenges:

Double D Challenges where they are looking for my favorite!! Polka Dots!



Happy Little Stampers August Challenge - Anything Goes with DIES my other favorite! giggles!!



And Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes! Where if it were not for my faith in God I would not be here!



I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I appreciate you stopping in to say hello.

(((Hugs)))
Patti

This card is so darn cute and a perfect teacher card! The picture looks good - I can see your polka dots in the background (they look like a soft Aqua Mist color to me).

Darling card and the subtle polka dot background works well with that image. A great card for back to school and all those teachers to whom we are so grateful to.

Oh Patti, using the pencil die to ground was brilliant! Love visiting you, and enjoying your talent and inspiring posts!

I'm typing with my fingers crossed *grin* that this comment will stick, because so many of the others haven't! Internet/blogger fiascos continue...as does the rain and thunderstorms! Maybe they're all interconnected! Anyway: your little girl is BEYOND adorable; the spitting image of my sweet Ms. T, right down to the long blonde hair, sweet outfit and obvious 'love' for school! Darling in every way...and I'm smitten with your polka-dots that I see wonderfully on my screen!
Hugs galore,

I wouldn't have one bit of trouble if those dots WERE gray, Patti! You have created a 'teacher's pet' sure to win an A++, and gold stars!

Oh, Patti, aren't you the clever one with the sweet little Blondie grounded on a pencil? I'm seeing turquoise polka dots. So happy to see you entering MIM. I'm way behind in blog commenting here, and I apologize. 😀
