Teacher Appreciation Cards

I didn't get my box with new stamps in it until yesterday afternoon and so couldn't finish my thank you card for my BSF leader (maybe I'll be able to post it by tomorrow). Instead I worked on cards for Adrian and Elliot's teachers and teacher's aides. The new CTMH catalog had this really cute paper pack called Animal Cookies which seemed perfect for teacher cards. I used the Creative Basic Animal Cookies Collection, which features only two patterned papers, but I loved both of them. The cards turned out just as I wanted them - yay! - and I only used half a sheet of each patterned paper (plus cardstock, of course) to make six cards. Hmmm, I think I sense a card making workshop in the future. And here's a big shout out to all you teachers out there. You have no idea what an impact you make on your students, so, even when the going gets tough, keep up the great work. You really are making a difference!
