Teacher Thank You Pressies

Firstly, sorry I haven't posted for ages - I have had some bad news to cope with over the last few weeks but I hope to start posting more regularly again very soon - there will be another challenge coming up too (with a little prize) so keep checking back.

Its that end of term time again where all of us with children frantically try and come up with something little to give the teachers. I've made these quick and simple Teacher Emergency Kits for all of Jakes Pre School teachers - he starts year 1 in September - my baby is growing up sooo fast!

I stamped and embossed some large Organza bags (most have the initial on too). Each bag contains a little card with a verse on the other side, a pack of tissues, some methol throat sweets, a pencil, a teabag, a tube of handcream, chocolate and some headache tablets (absolutely vital when dealing with a group of 30 under fives LOL!)

And a small thank you card for each of them too. The gorgeous Tapestry design that I have used on most of the cards is a fab stamp from Innovative Stamp Creations - we will hopefully be stocking this stamp very soon.

I am thrilled and delighted to receive this award from the fabulous 'Artist Trading Club' run by the charming and talented Chrissy. Thank you so much Chrissy xx.

And now to pass on this award in no particular order:


(1) The awarded blogs can put the logo on hers or his blog.
(2) Link the person you received your award from.
(3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
(4) Put links of those blogs on yours.
(5) Leave a message on the blogs of the people you've nominated.


xx Karen

Dear Karen,
I'm so embarrassed. Was yours the warhol style card with the atc interior and separate plaque that said "beautiful"? Please let me know. I'm not sure. She keeps that one by her bed and everyone says "were you in the movies Miss Elizabeth?"
