Something for the Teachers

With the end of the year fast approaching, it is time to get some thank you notes for teachers ready. My big kids are actually in school for almost another month, so I've got time to get those done. But preschool ends in two weeks, so these are ready to go.

This one was inspired by flash cards from long ago. I'm pretty sure that this "thank you" is retired, but it is the exact type of font that this card needs. I've had that little red clip in my drawer for at least two years; it is nice to have finally given it a purpose!

This card is based on a card sketch that I found somewhere and made a quick drawing in my notebook. I didn't make a note of where I found it, though, Whoops! It was fun to make this even though it was a bit tedious to color in all those pencils.

How are you liking the new blue? I'm so happy with cobalt blue - it goes with everything! I've been using it on cards like crazy, too. Hope you're not sick of it ;) Hope you'll stop by tomorrow!
