My daughter is winding down her first year of school (Young 5's). I really think her teacher is sooo great and there are many adults in the school that I have a great appreciation for. Addie is only in Young 5's for half a day and due to location logistics she spends the rest of the day in wrap around care until I can pick her up after work. While it's not always fun for her to spend so much time at the school... they do FUN things with her and she now knows every teacher in the school. I am working on some gifts for the really special people and will show those later but for now here's the card I designed for her teacher, the woman who does wrap around care, and the music teacher. I'm also working on a similar but very slightly different card for the school secretary who is sooo sweet!! She has lunch with Addie sometimes.
This card was quite a bit of fun. The basic layout idea came from Kelly's blog. All supplies are from Close To My Heart except my Cricut which I used to cut out the apples (Plantin Schoolbook cartridge) Papers: Animal Cookies Level 2, Cherry-o Level 2, Zippidee Level 2. Inks: Chocolate for edge distressing and Tulip; White Ricrac, Thanks stamp set. When I get the gifts done- I'll be sure to show those too... School ends Tuesday the 15th so I'll probobly finish them over the weekend. Have you been checking out the Jackpot June specials on my website at http://www.tracigodbee.myctmh.com/?
