2...4...6...8...Who Do We Appreciate?

Welcome Crafters
Day 4
Back to School Blog Hop

The question is, " Who do we appreciate?" 
The answer is, "Everyone!" 

For today's Back to School project I have created THANK YOU cards. I want to be able to thank my fellow teachers and paraprofessionals for making our work experience pleasant, my student's parents for thier continual support, and PTO for approving the mini grants I write.  What better way to show them I genuinely appreciate working together than giving them one of my hand-made cards.

THANK YOU!
Isn't ribbon great?
That is my new abc123 edge punch on the left. It is perfect for Back to School.

This one above is my favorite. I like that "thanks" looks like letter tiles. They are separate letters cut from the Alphabet Stack.

Those are star brads.


This card is for someone very special. Can you tell her name begins with the letter D?

 I LOVE  this Alphabet Stack by DCWV I found on clearance at TJMaxx for only $2.00. It is perfect for school.

To show my appreciation to "Everyone" for all the wonderful comments, I am adding an additional goodie. I will be offering a Learning Curve Cricut cartridge to another lucky person (Yes, two different followers will be selected for the blog candy.). I am thrilled that I reached 100 followers during this Back to School hop and wanted to share my excitement. Thank you for making this such a success!
Hop on over to Dorcas at 4 Crafty Angels now. She always has something amazing!
Be sure to come back again tomorrow for Day 5.
Thanks for commenting,
Georgiana

  4. I love how you use the ribbon on these cards, not just the usual wrap around with a bow. I am going to try to make a card using it different method today! Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. Congrats on reaching 100 followers! How exciting that must be for you....:O) I enjoying seeing all your thank you cards but the third one (with the star brads) is my favorite. Several years ago I started a monthly teacher appreciation at our school and it was a BIG hit! The parents crafted something cute (and sometimes tasty) and we would put them in the teacher's box. I'm not sure who had more fun! The giver or the receiver! LOL! Anyway, thanks for sharing your fun crafts....:O)

  21. Great cards! I sure that your fellow teachers and the paras appreciate your expression of gratitude - I know that teaching can be a thankless job sometimes, and it's always nice to know that someone notices all of the hard work that you do! TFS
