I love this sentiment!
For this card, I used Core'dinations Black Magic paper as my background and sanded out the "light". I hand cut the lampshade and then folded it. The lamp base is actually an oil lamp from the Old West Cricut cartridge. I hid some cuts so it would look electric. The sentiment is from the Country Life cartridge. The alphas are by Authentique.

It is staff appreciation week at my daughter's school. I love making these bulletin boards for the staff to show how much we appreciate their hard work!
I am entering this project at Cooking with Cricut. Their challenge this week is to make a teacher appreciation project with your Cricut.
I had trouble this year thinking of ideas but I did find this title and jungle idea online at Artsy Fartsy Mama.
Most of these wild animals are from The Create A Critter Cricut cartridge. The toucan is from Life is a Beach. The font is Birthday Bash. I picked up large google eyes and tried to make this board fun and bright. (This school is Kindergarten to Grade Four.) I braided jute as my "vines". The paw prints are from Mickey and Friends and they have the name of each school staff member. While I had a desk covered in this paper, I whipped up a matching card for the staff with scraps. Yay!
I hope they like it!
