Popping By to Say Hi Card

Hello everyone!  Well, I am officially back at work after having 3 weeks off for Christmas vacation.  I wanted to feel sorry for myself, but then I realized that I had just had 3 weeks off, so I needed to just focus on that!  :)  As it turns out, I'm having a lot of fun showing off my engagement ring, and my students love looking at how "sparkly" it is!  I also missed my co-workers and students, so it's definitely not all bad... :)  I made another card for some challenges.  I was bummed that this one didn't photograph very well.  The popcorn kept looking washed out on camera, and I couldn't change it so I'm rolling with the punches!  Hope you enjoy!

Sister Act Card Challenge- anything goes, but must be a card
The Paper Players- use the chalkboard technique
Fusion Card Challenge- use the sketch and/or the picture

A2 sized card
George and Basic Shapes- I welded together some circles and shaped them with my scissors to make the popcorn
Joy's Life Stamps- Yummy Puns
Red paper strip cut at 3 1/2 x 5 1/2"
Black paper strip cut at 2 1/2 x 5 1/2"
Colored pencils/chalk (to give texture to popcorn)
Foam tape
White ink

That's all there is to it!  Thanks for "popping" by!  :)

Hadn't visited you in awhile. Thought I would stop by and see what you have been up to. Your popcorn card is so cute and I have to tell you, I Loved seeing that you had an Elf on the Shelf in your class room. How fun for all of the kids. I had a Elf on the Shelf at my house this year to. My Grand Kids loved him. They named him Ernie. If you get a chance you can go over to my blog and see all of the things that Ernie did.
Happy New Year to you. :0)
