I am pleased to report that both girls have had really good years. I am in a total state of disbelief (and shock?) that our big girl will start high school in a few short months while her little sister will start at the middle school. Not having one of my girls at my school (practically next door this year) is going to be really hard on this momma for sure.
We made sure to make thank you cards to show our appreciation to our teachers for a great year. Because I had eight to make, I kept them fairly simple. The girls wrote their own messages of gratitude on the inside.
(On a side note, I am also sad to see a favorite student graduate this year! He has come to visit me every Christmas and end of the year since he left me in fifth grade. It means more than he will ever know that he has taken the time to show me, year after year, that I made a difference in his life. That is absolutely what it's all about, dear readers! Go thank a teacher today yourself, because you know there's at least one out there who greatly impacted your life.)
The card for the academic teachers includes a panel from an old children's novel that had seen much better days. (I promise it was already falling apart. No books were harmed in the making of these cards!) The two music teachers' cards feature the music stamp from the Universal Backgrounds stamp set.
I created these thank you cards with two challenges in mind:
- The Cupcake Craft Challenge 193, Book Lover, to use a book image or text on your project (I used pages from an actual children's book, plus I think a lot of book lovers also love to play Scrabble, hence the other patterned paper.)
- The Dynamic Duos #3 Black Tie Week, pairing black with Daffodil Delight (or in my case, CTMH's Honey)
Thanks for looking! Now let summer officially begin!
