Well, at long last, I finally got Challenge # 5 - "Teacher Appreciation Days" - ready to go. This challenge had perfect timing for me as one of my co-workers asked me to make 2 Teacher Appreciation cards for her so she can give them to her son's teachers. So, I used this challenge to make both cards.
For both cards, I used the Preserves Cartridge and cut the apples (and all layers) once at 2" and again at 2 1/2". I used Apple #3 and Apple #4. The apple paper is some that I got in a paper back from the $1 Spot at Target. The "Thank You" sentiment is from the Sweet Occasions stamp set by My Pink Stamper. I also used the Divine Swirls embossing folder on the green strip of paper on the one card. I used my Inkadoo white gel pen to add some doodling around the edges of the flowers.
On the inside of the cards, I used a white mat so that my co-worker can write a nice note to her son's teachers and then added a flower on the corner.
Well, on that note, I think I'm off to bed. Sadly I didn't manage to keep up with the challenges and get all 12 done....so I'll resume with Challenge #6 in the morning and try to finish up the remaining 7 challenges tomorrow.
Good night all.....
