#1 Teacher

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.This week our challenge hostess for the month Vicky Gould continues to issue the challenges.

Vicky tells us that she loves birds.  Let’s use birds on our cards this week….Crazy Birds, Real Birds, Cartoon Birds…whatever trips your trigger!  One,  two, a flock…it’s your choice.  Show me those birds!

At our recent Papercrafts Show that I attended earlier in the month I found this fun owl stamp which I had been looking for for a while and of course had to purchase. So of course I decided to use that for my card today. 

As there were books also on this card I thought it would be a great image to use for another teacher thank you card that I need to make for my Grandsons teachers at the end of the year.

As you can see I have created a pop up card using the pop up die included in the Hot Air Balloon die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

For the front of my card I added an oval using the Stitched Ovals and Dotted Scallop Ovals and added the #1 Teacher die cut.

Such a wonderful and unique card that I am sure any teacher will love and keep in her stash of gratitudes. As a teacher, I kept a folder at my desk with notes of appreciation from students and their families. They were the best gifts I ever got that touched my heart.
