Teacher Appreciation Week

This week is teacher appreciation week and yesterday we brought these into the school for my twins teachers. 
I found the watering cans at Target's Dollar spot ($2.50 each). The teachers loved them!  Oh, and I used a #2 pencil to stick the note card in the pots. The card says, "It is not so much what is poured into a student, but what is planted by the Teacher that really counts."

Supplies: PTI Teachers Apple stamp set and baker's twine.

Make It Monday #64: Using Color Inspiration (2nd)

I had another idea in my head and I like this one the best. I followed Nicole's rule of 3 all the way with this one. Again, I don't have Fine Linen so I used Kraft instead. I wanted the banner to look like it was tied between the two trees, hopefully it looks that way to you ;-) Love that little bird!

All Supplies PTI unless noted: All CS and Ink from above + Kraft, Trendy Trees Stamp and Dies, Chocolate Twine and Ink, PP also PTI, Die from Taylored Expressions. 

Make It Monday #64: Using Color Inspiration

I finally broke into my Trendy Trees from PTI today to try my hand at the Make It Monday Color challenge. I don't have Fine Linen so I substituted chocolate. I did follow Nicole's rule of three (except with the Chocolate) and I think the best part of that rule is that it pushes me to add more spice to my creations. It is hard to see but in the background I added flowers with versa mark to my color blocked background. I like how simple this card is but I like my second post best. 

Supplies: All PTI unless noted, ink and CS from the above list plus chocolate, Versa Mark, Beautiful Blooms II, Trendy Trees, Tri flower punch from Stampin Up, Think Big Favorite, rhinestones.
