The "Berry" Best Teacher! *SFYTT*

I mentioned the other day that I had made chocolate dipped strawberries for my kid's school teachers with a tag. I decided to use the same sentiment and papers that I used for the tag, to create a card. My daughter's teacher at church gave her a really cute necklace a few months ago and I still haven't sent a thank you card. Why not celebrate all of the teachers in our lives this week? I think I will make her some chocolate strawberries as well and make something for my son's church teacher, too. We will see how much time I end up with this weekend.






The sentiment was created on my computer and then printed onto Vintage Cream cardstock from PTI. I sponged the edges using Antique Linen distress ink by Ranger. The strawberry is from one of my all-time favorite PTI stamp sets: Green Thumb. The paper is from the "Fly a Kite" collection of papers by October Afternoon.






I added some buttons, ribbon and rick-rack. There wasn't much stamping on this one since I used the sentiment as the focal image. I was lucky that the thread in my sewing machine matched the paper so well! It worked perfectly!

I do want to thank all of you who left such sweet and encouraging comments in regard to Emma. She had her eye appointment on Friday and her glasses will be coming in next week. She picked out a really cute pink pair that are absolutely adorable on her. She looks like a Mary Engelbreit illustration with them on! The eye doctor dilated her eyes so that he could get a really good idea of how hard she is working to see the words when she reads. His diagnosis was that she is working really hard and that the glasses should help out a lot. They will only be needed for reading, which is nice so that we won't have to worry about them all of the time.
Rowan is growing like a weed. I have been taking pictures of him each week on his "week" anniversary of his birth. I missed this Wednesday, so I made up for it on Friday. He has some adorable bear pajamas that he got for Easter with a bear hat. I thought that I would really "cheese" things up and add some "beary" cute pictures of him!
