A great teacher and friend :)

Yesterday I was in a creative mood and whipped out a few cards and even a Birthday project. The Birthday present that I put together is for a good friend of mine who is also going to be my son's 2nd grade teacher next year!! I am so excited for him to be in her class! She is such a great teacher and it is going to be a fabulous year.

After I was done with her Birthday surprise I decided to make a couple of cards....this first one also happens to be for the same friend...although, she will have to wait a while for this one ;)

Supplies: American Crafts CS and rub ons, Autumn Leaves Chipboard, Dept 56 ribbon (the large ribbon), small stripe ribbon is unknown and the jingle bell is from the craft store.

another teacher card...this one is based on Kazan's sketch that the top 30 finalists will follow this week over at the 2S4Y ultimate card showdown. I fell in love with the sketch and wanted to use it too :)

Supplies: Bazzill scalloped cardstock, Petersen-Arne (blue) CS, grid paper is from a Studio Calico kit, Sticker letters are Making Memories and Melissa Frances rub on.

Okay, here is the Birthday gift I put together....

All the makings for italian sodas...strawberry syrup, club soda, some half and half and even a can of whipped cream. Hope she likes it!

Supplies: Collage Press PP, Bazzill dot CS and Making Memories ribbon.

The drink carrier is from our local theatre...I went in and asked if I could buy one. I knew it would work out perfect for this gift basket...they were so nice and let me have it for free :)

Supplies: Collage Press PP, Bazzill dot CS, Making Memories ribbon, hemp twine, Prima flower, Melissa Frances button and American Crafts rub on.

Well that's it for me. I hope you are all enjoying the Ultimate Card Showdown as much as I am!! It has been so much fun to see the amazing creations that are coming in! So much fun.
