Thank You Teachers!

Okay so you've all heard me talking about the end of the school year, I've been ready for it, it's finally here, "SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER"!!!!!!!!! Yay!

Now, I can't forget the teacher's that changed my kids' lives this year. They both learned so much this year. I am very grateful to their wonderful teacher's and class aides who helped them.
Here's one of the cards I made for them.


I embossed the white c/s base with the small dots texture plate then chalked it with old olive and pumpkin pie. I used my scallop circle die and large circle die with my Big Shot machine. The sentiment is from Enjoy Every Moment stamp set. Of course, you all know that image is RILEY! Ain't her the cutest thing?!! I colored him with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I cut him out and his stack of books. I used crystal effects on the books, apple and pencil. Then just to top it off I added some matching rick rack ribbon. It was a piece of ribbon just laying in my drawer that matched the patterned paper. Don't you love when that happens?

This card goes along with the challenge at Paper Cutz this week: Make a card for a Teacher
Also Just Us Girls challenge: Use Dry Embossing

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Until next time...
Blessings...
