Teacher Thanks

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our challenge hostess for the month which is Joanne Grzelak.

This month Joanne is going to keep it simple. The holidays are coming, and times will be busy. This will be a month of celebrations. So for our challenge this week we are to make a Thanksgiving card OR a card of thanks. 

Seeing we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, I decided to create another Teacher thank you card. The end of the school year is fast approaching down here (ours finishes up in December which is our summer), and I like to make a few teacher thank you cards so my daughter can use them for my grandchildren teachers. 

I recently discovered this fun pencil pattern paper in a paper pad I have in my stash, so wanted to use some of that on my card and as I only have two sheets on didn't want to use it all I decided to make a Pull Card using the Pop it ups Oval Pull Card die set which unfortunately is now discontinued. 

To decorate my card I used a couple of owl images from Pink & Main and added the #1 Teacher die cuts to the sides of my card.

When you "pull" the card open, it reveals the second owl standing on a pencil and a thanks sentiment which is an edge die. I die cut the sentiment in both yellow and black cardstock.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

REceiving cards of thanks become a very special part of a teacher's keepsakes and a forever place in her heart. I know some special teacher will cherish this specially made card just for her.
