Teacher Thanks

As a substitute teacher, I typically work in different schools each day and I don't spend a lot of time talking to other teachers in the school. I am a rather reserved person so I just go in, do a good job with the class and go home. However, I work a lot at one specific school where I also did my student teaching. This past school year, I have subbed a lot for the first grade teachers who always tried to request me when possible. They are so kind and generous and treat me like a colleague as opposed to an employee, which is how I feel at other schools. Of course, I hope to join them if a position is available and I am lucky enough to snag it for next year.

Anyway, to show my gratitude, I decided to make each of the first grade teachers a card! Luckily, my brand new set of stamps came by My Pink Stamper. I got a set of animal puns and the cupcake set and I put the animal puns to good use today! (I also got a cute set by Pink by Design, which I will show on projects at a later date!)

Without  further ado, here are the seven cards I have worked on this weekend:

All of the animals are cut from Create a Critter and the background shapes were all from Once Upon A Princess (I think). The sentiments are all from that set by My Pink Stamper, except the bird one--I have no idea who made that sentiment stamp! Of course, I added touches of ribbon, white pen and twine as necessary!

I hope you enjoy looking; I am sure they will love these cards and I had a wonderful time making them!
