Teachers

In the news recently for our City has been the bankruptcy filing of a huge organization - so very sad! Many children will be without the help they need, many teachers have lost their jobs as well as other employees. A sweet friend of mine wanted to give the teachers of her daughter's classroom a "Thinking of You" card; 2 of them were laid off, the other one was moved to another location but had to take a large pay cut.

For anyone that has children and has used daycare, you know how important those teachers/daycare providers are in your life - they truly partner with you to help raise your children. These cards were such fun to make; I used the Teachers Pet paper by Imaginisce - I LOVE these papers and cannot wait to make gifts for my children's teachers for school this year.

We used 2 different sentiments from PTI's Teacher's Apple set, "The best Teachers teach from the heart, not just the book." and "Teachers affect eternity; they can never tell where their influence stops." The inside of the cards say "Thinking of You". I used another sketch challenge for the layout, this one by MFT (MFTSC93).

I love this little decorative strip on the inside of the card; adds such a fun finishing touch! Those envelopes were awfully fun too! Two-step stamping also from the Teacher's Apple set.

TFL; have a great week!! Hugs, ~M.
