Thanks Teacher

As soon as I saw My Favorite Things' "Harvest Mouse" set, I fell in love! Even though we're heading into spring, I added the set to my cart as I could see how the little mouse holding an apple would be perfect for thank you cards for my son's teachers. My youngest is in Grade 8 this year and has a team of six who work with him so I'm happy to get started on thank you cards and gifts! He also LOVES apples and eats a few each day so I'm always delighted to find stamps and images with apples.


As noted above, the sweet mouse is from My Favorite Things' Harvest Mouse set. I also used a stencil from My Favorite Things to create the grid background which was then cut with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die. The "thanks" is a Simon Says Stamp die and the teacher sentiment is from My Creative Time. Everything is adhered flat, except for the sweet little mouse which was mounted with foam. The colours meet the requirements for this week's MFT Card Challenges - Colour Challenge so I'm entering there. My apple is two shades of green, although it's hard to tell in the photo.


I'm also going to enter this card in Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge - Food and Drink and Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Cute and Cuddly.


I liked my card so much that I created a second one in red! Now I've got two cards down and four to go. That should be no problem to finish before the end of June!!

Aaaw, your little harvest mouse set is adorable! Great cards and what a fun idea for Teacher thank you cards~so cute! I think I need to check out these adorable stamps you have been using! Not familiar with that line~ I finally was able to do some crafting today...yay! I have been swamped making treats for my Granddaughters preschool and daycare that I haven't had any time to play with new goodies I got like 2 wks ago, ugh! Oh well, life has been getting in the way and I guess that's the way it goes at times~
Have a great day Kate!
Hugs,
