For 2 Great Teachers














Well it took some time for me to figure out what I was doing with these teacher cards, and they finally came together last night. I used my friends Ellen Hutson Itty Bitty Apple stamp for the middle of the circle. I stamped the sentiment with my handy dandy Just Rite stamp set. This is a very fidgety little gadget, however the final outcome outweighs the frustration of fiddling with the little letters. This gives any card such personalization. I used a foam square to stand the apple up. I used my darling Tilda in her jeans, and perched her atop of the little rail fence, with her basket of apples beside her for her teacher. My son and daughter were blessed by having truly great teachers this year. The support and commitment those teachers gave my children will forever be remembered. I wanted an extra special card for them. My little apple says "Special Teacher", and was purchased from my favorite shopping spot, Stamping Bella.
