For My Teacher - Joy's Life Blog Hop

Hello Saturday Friends!

Today's the day for another Joy's Life Blog Hop.  And today we are all about teacher gifts.  It's getting to be that time of year....and we all know how important it is to thank the teachers who have worked with our little (and big) kids all year.

I have a three year old grandson in preschool, so I focused on a gift card holder for his teacher.

The papers are all from Graphic 45 but the star of the show is the sentiment from Joy's Life.  It is part of the All Around Sentiments stamp set. The little "thank you" on the tag is from the same set.  This set is really a great one.

I used a Spellbinders die for the sentiment and an MFT Stamps die for the white scalloped mat. 

What you can't see here is on the back.  There is a pocket made with coordinating papers just right for slipping in a gift card.  So the sweet teacher gets two gifts - a little art piece and a gift card.  AWESOME!

You will want to see what everyone on the team has made for this hop.  So be sure to click on the team member links below to keep going.
