Teacher Thank You/Christmas Cards and Matching Bookmarks

Hi Blogging Buddies,

I was thinking that it might be a good time to sell some teacher Thank you/Christmas cards. It is getting to the end of the school year in Australia and sometimes parents are looking for a little gift to give their child's teacher as a way of saying thank you for teaching their child for the year and to wish the teacher a Merry Christmas.

I used Meljen Designs images to make a card and a bookmark. I made them in traditional Christmas colours and coloured with Copics.

The colours I used are:

Reds: RV29, R46, R59
Greens: YG63, YG03, YG11
Browns: E37, E33
Pink: RV02
Cool Shadow:BG10

The book mark is decorated on both sides. The front says "I love my teacher" and on the back there is lines for the child to write the teacher a message. This way the teacher will always remember who gave them the gift.

I would like to enter these in the following challenges:
The Crazy Challenge - Thank you or Thanksgiving
Creative Card Crew - Lets Give Thanks
Stamp Something - Something with Thanks
Our Creative Corner - Create a Holiday 3D project
Saturday Challenge - Hand made Christmas Gifts
4 Crafty Chicks - Anything but a Card
I did it Creations - Traditional Christmas Colours

I went a bit overboard on all the photos included in this post : )
It took me so long to make them all....I was a bit snap happy when I had finished!!

If you have made it all the way down here you have done well! Lol
The new kitchen chairs look fabulous! I am so happy with them and will post a photo of them soon. We are hopefully lawn mowing today as our grass is out of control! But Ben has to fix the lawn mower again before we can start. Every time I get on it something goes wrong with it....maybe a message telling me not to mow! Ben will probably mow and I will either whipper snip or use the round-up...all of the burrs are changing over. The winter ones are dieing off and the summer ones are coming up. The winter ones are all getting stuck in Ellie's coat and I have to brush her everyday to get them out. Our lawn out the front we planted by seed in March is finally coming through - so very exciting! Just have to get the weeds out of the way now so it can hopefully take over! Lots to do outside...honestly how good it would be if you could just stay home and work on the house and yard and get paid for it!
Hope your Sunday is fun, thanks for visiting.
