to my A+ Teacher

TGIF, I hope all my crafty friends are having a great day.. Well, I have been super busy now that my son is in Pre-K.. He has done very well, but he did have one bad morning this week ( it just broke my heart having to leave him all upset) .. We've been so blessed to have such a kind hearted teacher and teachers assistant.. So, to show them how much we appreciate them making the transition from home to school such a pleasant experience .. I created these fun thank you cards for the both of them...

Here's what I used to create my adorable apple card:

* Gypsy (to create card base)
*Create a Critter (apple)
*Give a Hoot (owl)
*Groovy Times (glasses {slightly modified})
*Learning Curve (A+)
*Everyday Occasions Stamps ( Joy’s Life product page )
*Winter Wonderland Faces 1 1/8' ( Peachy Keen Stamps)
*Paper (DCWV & the Paper Studio)
*White Pen
*Black Marker
*Bakers Twine
