Teacher Appreciation Week - Day 2

  For the second day of Teacher Appreciation week at my sons' preschool I made a Thank You card for each of the teachers.  Nothing really fancy here since when I designed it I was planning on having other parents help make all the items and I didn't want it to be too complicated a design since I didn't know if anyone else would have any stamping experience.  I didn't want to have a "deer in the headlights" situation so I went with a Clean and Simple (CAS) style.  This would be a great card for beginner stampers.

  Again,  I stayed with the same color combination.  Each card was slightly different since I used the Sunny Garden DSP and just changed which patterns I used for the 3 background panels.

   I used my markers to color the flower stamp from the Hello Again set and added a rhinestone to the center.  The "Thank You" from the Thank You Kindly set was stamped in Poppy Parade.  I put a little 1/8" taffeta bow in the lefthand corner to balance out the top panel.

  Check back tomorrow for another Teacher Appreciation project!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
