Teachers, You RULE!



Hello!  Happy (day after) Teacher' Appreciation Day!  I whipped up a couple of cards for Kayne's Kindergarten teacher and aide and I wanted to share them!  Of course I went with Saturated Canary images!  Because CUTE!  For Kayne's teacher I used Back to School Boy.  He is colored with Copics and cut using Classic Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I used the sketch from the latest Digi Sketch Challenge as my layout.  Papers are from the Grade School stack (DCWV).  I selected a sentiment from the Teacher's Pet stamp set (My Favorite Things) and cut it with Labels Twenty One Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I finished up with a button and baker's twine bow and a notebook edge punch (EK Success).  We popped a Staples gift card inside before delivering it so that Mr. M could buy some things for the classroom on us! 


 
And we couldn't leave out the lovely aide!  She was treated to vibrant bouquet of primary colored daisies and this card! 


I used another Saturated Canary cutie!  This is Beautiful World colored with Copics and cut using Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I created a sentiment using the same Teacher's Pet stamp set and stamped it directly on the image panel.  The Sketch Saturday (#359) sketch inspired me to use baker's twine in my design.  Papers are Something Wonderful (Teresa Collins) and I've added a crystal button for a bit of sparkle.
