For My Teacher...

When I first spotted this adorable paper I knew I needed to match it with the school house from the Unity kit and the sentiment from PTI! As a teacher I always make sure I spend a little extra time on cards and gifts for my kid's teachers. Well as most of you know I am homeschooling my son this year so now the focus goes on my daughter's teacher. I wanted to keep this card minimal so that it was easily reproducible. As the years have passed I have found that although paper crafters create GORGEOUS multi-layered cards using a variety of tools not everyone has access to those. I remember the early days when basic is all that there was and while I do enjoy spending hours creating ONE card I also think it is important to create a bunch of cards in one hour. KWIM?

Stamp Set(s): sentiment from Everyday Button Bits by PTI and image from September Kit of the Month by Unity
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White by PTI
Patterned Paper:
October Afternoon
Ink: Dark Chocolate by PTI

Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. I know I plan to enjoy some crafting time in preparation for next week *wink*.

Truer words were never spoken! I do love the way those cards look, but when you are trying to make gifts for 10 friends and family members, and everyone knows you are a "cardmaker"- one card created in 3 hours can not compare to 20. B.T.W., I visit your blog because I came upon some of your lovely creations in the past. T.F.S. and keep on making those CAS cards.
