My card features the teacher, pile of books and one of the sentiments from Smarty Pants. This set is mega cute and it has the word 'smart' in it so that tells you how versatile it is! This guy makes me laugh. I love his face, don't you? He looks like a mad scientist to me. Imagine how fun it would be to swap out the stick for something else!

I bent his leg so that his shoe would lie flat on the stack of books. I also used one of the circles from Whirligigs to pattern his tie. Don't forget to leave a comment on the Paper Smooches Blog for a chance to win Whirligigs, another one of the CHA releases that will be available for purchase on March 1st. I hope you are prepared to spend on that day! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of Smarty Pants!

Gosh! You patterned his tie! That's just perfect! I thought it was meant to be this way, but of course, it wasn't on the original stamp, 'cause you stamped in black, but I didn't realize this until you told me this, so this is just perfect! Love the way he's balancing on the books!! Perfect!! Yep, a very nice professor here!!!
Hugs, Wendy
