Teacher Appreciation Week

I hope everyone is starting the week off well.  It's Teacher Appreciation week so I've been busy, busy, busy.  I guess I never realized just how many teachers my kindergartner has.  I sent him off with the first two cards this morning and wanted to share with some simple cards I made.  The first card I made for my son's wonderful homeroom teacher.  I used some black card stock purchased from JoAnn's, and layered different patterned papers from Graphic 45's "ABC Primer" line.  For the addition card accents I cut them from another patterned paper and popped them us with pop dots.  The ruler along the bottom is also from the "ABC Primer", which I fussy cut and adhered along the bottom.  The main image was cut and matted using the same black card stock.  The only stamping I did on this card was on the inside which was a sentiment from Taylored Expressions.  I added the burlap strip cut from some fabric and frayed the edges.  Love this card.  So far it's my favorite.

For the next card I used black card stock for my base.  The patterned papers on this card are from Kaisercraft"s "Class of 87".  I used the same layout for this card only for the main image I used a report card stamp from the same Taylored Expression Make the Grade stamp set.  A simple ribbon finishes off this card.  This one was made for my son's music teacher.  

That does it for this post.  Hope everyone has a wonderful week, and thank you for stopping by.
