Beginning of School Blog Hop-- CTMH Teacher Card

Thanks for joining us for the Beginning of School Blog Hop! 

You should have arrived from Jessica's Blog  The hop begins on Kathryn's blog if you'd like to start at the top.

 We have 16 fabulous designers all ready to show you a "school" creation! This is a two-day hop. so some will have a second project posted tomorrow, so be sure to stop by again!

For the past 10 years, back to school has meant Teacher meetings, getting ready for the school year, selling PE clothes, and seeing the innocence of the 7th graders when they arrive on the first day.

This year, Back to School has a whole new meaning----- my little man is entering Kindergarten!!!!  I am nervous, yet excited for him!  I'm sure I'll be a mess the day of, so I plan to take part of the day off to join him for his first day! 

I am also very excited to create things for his new teacher!  I have created her a card to go with her gift (check back tomorrow). 

For this card, I used some fabulous NEW Close to My Heart products! 
*6x6 Kraft Die Cut Card--- isn't this kraft card just Kool!
*Typeset Level 2 papers--- perfect for any school project!
*School Rocks- I stamped the school house image in Cocoa ink, then used a combination of makers and waterbrush with ink to color in the image.
*Milepost Shapes- I can't get enough of these corrugated stars!  Swipe them over your ink pad to give some rustic color!
*Newsprint Rub-ons-- I love these!  How cool do they look along the side of the card flap with her name on it!

On the inside of the card, I printed out THIS printable from Eighteen25.  I will have my son sign it before we give it to her!

OK- Time to HOP on over to Tina's blog for School time FuN!!!!

I'm sure your son's teacher is just going to love the card you made her. Having been a Pre-K teacher.... it's always nice to know that they parents of your students appreciate all you do and you know that those are the parents who are there if you need em' Can't wait to see what you made her as a gift I'm sure it's going to be great.

Always a pleasure.
