A Teacher Thank You

It is hard to believe summer is already here. I am looking forward to being able to enjoy the backyard, having my girls at home, taking a vacation and some time off work.

It also the time of year when we need those little teacher gifts. With that in mind, I sat down and made a thank you card this weekend.

The stamp is MFT's You Make the Grade, and she is colored with Copics and her skirt is paper pieced. I used my Prism Colored Pencils for the floor. The layout is this weeks Mojo Monday 142 sketch challenge. The edges are sponged with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Tea Dye. I used the Die-namics Scalloped Scallop die for the border.

I stamped "Thanks" with a sentiment for the MFT set, Thanks a Bunch, in white ink.

The sentiment on the inside is also from Thanks a Bunch.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a good week!
