That stinks!

Apr 1, 2011




This card is dedicated to everyone who has ever been laid off. My heart goes out to all you teachers that just got your lay off notice. I've been teaching for 9 years and I've gotten a layoff notice every year for the last 4 years. 

The image is from Dude Time Doodles. I wish I had some Copic markers to color this in right. But I had to settle for using my daughter's Crayola color pencils :) I was also able to use scraps from a previous project. Check out Dino... Fetch from a few posts back.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Creative Time For Me, Thursday Throwback Challenge. It's a Cricut less challenge using a sketch. 
More Than Favors, Wacky Wednesday Challenge #32 - Something Funny
Cooking With Cricut, Funny quote, saying, or pun
Card Cupid, Create a funny card
Scraps 4 Fun, Use your scraps

<3 this card. And it is so true. All my teacher friends have gotten notices and still haven't heard if they are rescinded yet. Ugh! My heart breaks for them.

This is so funny! Don't worry about copics you did a great job and if you want any alcohol markers I would get promarkers. That's what I use and I love them! I got all of them for less then what it is to get 100 of them.

This card is hysterical! However, teachers being laid off is no laughing matter :< Why our country can't or won't understand that teachers are our most valuable resource is beyond me -- after all you are educating the next generation of leaders. Thanks for taking time to join us at Cooking With Cricut this week.
