Teacher Gifts

Hey, hey!

Today is a big day around here. Gabriel has his little preschool concert. His first concert ever!  The camera is charged, he knows his lines and his outfit is ready to go. Oh the maternal joy.

We have had such a fabulous year with Early Achievers' preschool program.  His teachers and little friends have been wonderful and Gabriel has done so well.  All I wanted from this program was for him to play with kids his own age and get a sense of what Kindergarten will be like. I have gotten so much more. So, obviously, I had to make his teachers a little set of cards to say "thank you".

I made a Distress Splatter Flower card. It's my go-to card, right now.

For this one, I punched out the hearts, backed them with some book text and added some faux stitching,

The pinwheel is my favorite.

Then I just bundled 6 cards with some colorful envelopes and tied them up with twine.

Finished Teacher's Gifts

A cute little something for a couple of wonderful teachers.

I usually blog about my art journaling on Friday and I hope to be back with something later. Maybe. In the meantime,  check out Julie's blog for today's Art Journal installment.  They are always fabulous.

Have a great weekend.




  1. These are great cards - I know the teachers had to love them and I can't wait to hear all about the concert!

    1. Thanks! The concert was fabulous. I finally understand the point of school concerts. They are for parents and the camera industry. : )
