thank you teacher set of cards

Hi all!  Hope your week has started off great!  Today I have another teacher card set I made for another one of Ariel's preschool teachers.  This is the first one I started and the last one I finished!  I love it but it took forever to make.  I finished the third one tonight so I will have to share that next.  Ariel's teacher told me that she would love thank you cards since she uses them all the time so I made her all thank you's.

I stamped the background with horizontal lines by Hero Arts with white ink, and embossed in white the silhouette spray also by HA.  The ric rac is felt!  I really like this color of blue!  Here is how I "wrapped" it up:


I used a PTI box that the stamps come in and wrapped it with more of the felt ric rac, and made a tag reversing the colors.   I am entering this card for the current challenge at Caardvarks since I did emboss, I really wanted to play this month so I am happy that I did!

I have a funny story to share.  My MIL watched our kids for us last Tuesday night and Chad and I went on a date to see A Team (great movie and yes I watched the show in reruns!) Ariel has taken to carrying a purse with her wherever she goes, and often funnily enough asks me where it is while it's on her arm!  So she had the purse with her at my inlaws and my MIL asked her what was in it and Ariel said "Oh just a little bit of Crap!"  I only found this out last night when my SIL were asking Ariel so they could hear her say crap.  I knew right away the mistake that was made since I know what is in the purse.  What she actually said was "Oh just a little bit of crafts!"  Ariel's purse is full of stickers and papers and crayons, her crafty stuff!  She actually often crafts in the car, when we pull over she hands me a card!  My daughter does not say crap!  So funny though!  And Ariel even takes the purse when we go for walks and it's in the basket of the stroller while she rides her bike, she wants her crafts with her at all times!

Oh and I just saw that Jennifer McGuire is asking for cards for Gracie and fast, please check it out here let's do something great for this girl!

These are so beautiful! The teachers in the U.S. have to be the luckiest in the world. I don't think they are getting that much appreciation here! Cute story :)
