Thanks to the Teachers...

I thought that I would take time today to say thank you to all the teachers out there. I know what an underpaid, underappreciated job it is, most of the time. I just want you to know, there are a few of us out there who truly appreciate what you do for us and our children. So, I made some thank you cards to give to my children's teachers.
I started with this week's sketch from 2Sketches4You, to base all of the cards on. I printed out a sheet of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff School Papers, cut into separate pieces (this is so great for making easy cards). I then mounted the papers to colored cardstock bases, and embellished with lollipop flowers that I received from a swap, and ribbons. Using the card fronts makes this so easy!
Challenges I am entering:

2Sketches4You: Sketch
Clearly I Stamp: April Showers Bring May Flowers
