Preschool Teacher Gift
Cake has three preschool teachers who are the most amazing women. They are so sweet with the children and Cake always comments on how much she loves her teachers. We’re so lucky to have a wonderful program only a half a block from our house that focuses on play and social skills which is exactly what Cake needs. Don’t get me wrong, I try to foster learning at home with her but she is a social creature. During the long summer months she was begging for little girls to play with her and keep her company and now she gets it twice a week!
I wanted to ensure that our wonderful teachers know how much I appreciate them and how much Cake loves them so I decided to put together a small package of cards for them. Who doesn’t need thank-you cards right? I know those are the ones that I’m always running out of first so I made them all thank-you cards.
I used coloured pencils to colour in the hat, pants, and boots on the gnome. Especially enjoy this beautiful creamy yellow cardstock!
These ones I just coloured in with red and green markers and did an extra black outline around the cherries.
Stamps were also from Stampin’ Up, but the flower is the best part. Its beautiful scrapbook paper and I just cut out a different flower for each one of the cards. Will make some more of these for myself for sure!
Again, used coloured pencils from stampin’ up to colour in selected portions of the flowers.
Used a shimmery pen to outline the dragonfly though it’s a bit hard to see in the picture.
Could be because it’s purple, could be because of the lace cardstock, could be the poppy in the corner. Who knows maybe it’s all of the loveliness put together, but I love this one!
It’s been a terribly long time since I’ve done any cards but it felt good just to take out all my supplies and let the paper take me where it wanted to go. I did have lofty plans to make all my Christmas cards this year but upon a search through my desk I found more than enough cards to send out so rather than storing them for another year they are going out. I just can’t help myself, I love looking at all the pretty cards and even the other day when I was at Homesense I found myself perusing boxed cards and then slapping my hand and thinking that I do not need anymore store bought cards!!! Next year I actually want to make my cards, so NO BUYING CARDS!!!
