OCL is Pinning it!


It is Friday! And what does that mean? A new Our Craft Lounge challenge has been issued!


How fun is that? A reason to be on Pinterest all day long! Winking smile Okay, not really as am sure we all have tons of ideas pinned that we have just been dying to recreate. Now is your chance!

As you know, this week was Teacher Appreciation week. I had a few things pinned to pick from but went with this:

I changed it just a tad by making a frame tag. I used OCL School Notes. I stamped the pencils to make a frame and colored them in with copics. I took an xacto knife and cut out the inside of the framed area. Stamped an apple, colored it with copics and attached it with a pop dot. I was going to write the saying myself but made it more personal by having my kids write them. It meant so much to the kindergarten teacher to have it hand written by her student. It showed us both how far she has come since that first day of school. I even managed to find an orange cup as orange is the teacher’s favorite color!


My son did one for his teacher but I am showing the one we also gave the aide he has in his class that is mainly for a handicapped child but still helps out with the class when the teacher needs her to. There is lemonade drink pouches in the cup, hence the aide being in “”.


We only have 2 1/2 weeks of school left so now I have to start working teacher gifts! Stay tuned for those.

You have until 11:59pm Thursday, May 17th to enter.   Participate as many times as you like!   A random winner will be selected and posted on The Lounge at the beginning of next month. Here are the rules: use any stamps that you wish – get BONUS POINTS when you use OCL stamps!  Link to your card/project at the bottom of The Lounge post using the link tool provided – **be sure to link DIRECTLY to your challenge card – not a general blog or gallery link & add the appropriate photo.  Use the challenge as your basis – do whatever inspires you, but please base it on the challenge. If you upload to SCS, please use the Keyword OCL117.  We can’t wait to see what you CREATE!
