"You Rock"

I tell ya'll what, having the UNITY Kit of the Month has been a life saver during this move. I totally forget about my membership from month to month (obviously way to much on plate), but each month it is like Christmas when I check the mail and find the Unity package. Not exactly sure which KOTM these stamps were from but they were the perfect set to create a "Thank You" card for the head of our Special Education department at school.

Not exactly your typical "Teacher" card ehe? Well Ms. Cashman is not your typical teacher..........
SHE ROCKS She was such a blessing to our school, to our staff and to my son. Adam (my son), thought she was the epitomy of COOL. He loved spending time with her, loved her cool tattoos, and he loved talking to her about heavy metal music. The rock theme was PERFECT for her and the "INSPIRATION" sentiments were sincerely from my heart because her teaching style was such an inspiration to ME.
If you look closely, you might be able to see that I used a clear accents to create the window of the Juke Box to make it more "life like".
CHALLENGES I USED:
The Crazy Challenge: It's Hip to be Square (I used a square in the center & this card is totally HIP)
I'll be back later today to finish loading these

...............Supplies I used................
Stamps: Unity
Cardstock & Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up
Ink: Copic Markers, Momento (black tuxedo), Stampin Up
Tools: Stampin Up (large & small star punches), Spellbinders (Nestabilities labels 7)
Misc: Stampin Up (green mini clip)
