Thanks to the Teachers

     If you follow my blog or even visit regularly, you know that I'm in the process of making 45 "Thank You" cards at the request of my daughter, who is President of the Parent/Teacher group at my grandson's grade school this year.  The 'Parent' side of the group is putting on a recognition luncheon to honor all the teachers on May 6th.

     I've made CAS cards for the parent volunteers to sign and present to the teachers, trying to make each one individual and as different as possible.  I've utilized the various dies I have (from Memory Box, Die-namics, Spellbinders, and die-Mensions) for all the "Thank You" sentiments and then added embellishment to feminize most of the cards and left others as plain as possible for the few male teachers.  We all know how male DNA is programmed to complain about embellishment.  :-D

     Here are some more cards to share with you today.  I've listed the challenges I'm entering underneath each card.
