Congrats to an A+ Teacher

Hello Crafty Friends,
A co-worker asked me to make a card for one of her friends who was named Rookie Teacher of the Year at her school. Of course, I told her I would be more than happy. Now I hope she is happy with the card.
Each of our schools nominates a Rookie and a Teacher of the Year, then it is a long process that takes months before the Teacher of the Year is named for our county. There is a written portfolio, an interview, and observations. Then it is narrowed to the top 5. At the ceremony in February, the Teacher of the Year for the county is announced.
A few years ago I made it to the top ten, which was just fine with me. I didn't want to stand in front of a room of 400 people and give a speech. Perhaps in a few years I may have the opportunity again and I will be ready to speak to a large audience. It sure is different speaking to a room full of kids than adults.
Here are my scraps I used.
My Mind's Eye paper ~ Breeze
Give a Hoot Cricut cartridge ~ apple (p. 35) cut at 2"
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge ~ oval 3 1/4" and tag (p. 78) cut at 3/4"
Pink By Design ~ A+ stamp
brown ink
Congrats stamp
blue craft thread
brown gems
Hope you enjoyed your weekend.
Stay Creative,
