Thanks Teacher

Hello again fellow crafters it's Terri from http://www.scrappinwiththebug.blogspot.com/ bringing you a quick and simple little card.

On Wednesday it was my daughter's last day of preschool - (Sniffle Sniffle). So I wanted to give the teachers a special gift and a fun little simple card to. My daughter had 2 teachers both who I've grown to adore over the past 2 years she was in preschool. They are so sweet and wonderful I wanted them to feel special. So I bought them a fun little locket style necklace that holds little charms. I had the charms customized with their initials, and a sweet little apple.

Since I made them an apple card for Teacher's appreciation I waned to make a different card for the last day. I made these cuties. I was debating on using the graduation bear or the little school girl bear. As you can see I chose the school girl bear. Isn't she just so sweet.

I used Teddy Bear parade and cut the bear at 3" - if you notice I took Nadia's advice to make the object a little more dimensional. I inked around her and around her face to give her a little depth. You can't really see it here but I added glossy accents to the nose, and apple.

I then attached her to an action wobble spring to make her move.

I added a small brown square and then also some SRM stitched stickers on the side along with stickers saying, Thanks, Thank you... I thought it was perfect little addition to these cards.

They were simple and fun to make.

Hope you enjoy..
