Thank You Bunches, Teacher

Hi Friends~ I am popping in for a quick hello~ 
I wanted to share with you a quick card that I put together for my son's teacher for Teacher appreciation week last week.  Unfortunately, with as busy as my life is lately, she did not get this card until this Monday, because I just could not find the time to finish it before the end of the week last week.  Oh, if only I could manage my time better or if someone could add a few extra hours to the days!

I used one of my Popcorn Bears stamps (from McMahon Five Designs Store) again for this card.  Perfect for a card like this!  I also tried out a new corner punch that I was lucky enough to find at one of our local stores here.  I have to say that I love it, and I think I will be using that one alot more.  

The envelope was made with Priscillastyles envelope kit that you can find here if you haven't tried one out yet.  It is a must have and so easy to use!

So at the end of the day, we had a happy teacher, a happy little boy and a pleased Mommy that she could bring a smile to some pretty special people in her life.   I hope I might bring a smile to some of my blogging friends too, and I thank you for giving me a moment in your day.  Please leave me a comment to let me know your thoughts.  I love to come here and read a message from my friends, so you bring a smile to me as much as I try to bring one to you. 
Have a beautiful day!

Sweet card Carolyn and the lil butterfly closure on the envelope box is awesome!

Sam said...

Firstly this is a beautiful card and thank you so much for sharing it with us here at OSAAT this week. Secondly i know all about needing more hours or being too disorganised. My husband actually suggested a plan of my day - and as much as it pains me to say...it is actually working! I'm now finding time to craft for fun again.
Good luck in all the challenges and reorganising your time (or getting extra hours lol)
