A Special Thank You!

The week we went on winter break my students and I were the recipients of a very fabulous donation. I needed to make a very special thank you card (even though the company did not want thanks...how could I not??) Let me tell you how this gift began....

One of my favorite shows is Unwrapped on the Food Network. The episode I was watching was on Christmas goodies and one of the segments was on Color-A-Cookie. It was just like stamping only on a cookie!! They provide edible markers so that you can color the image - it's totally cool! I contacted the company and for my budget it was out of the question. Well in conversing via e-mail with one of their representatives, Jordan, he was so kind and decided to not only donate the cookies to my classroom, but to the entire 2nd grade class (77 students). How could I not thank him and this wonderful company.

For Christmas today, I spent the day surfing blogs and came across two amazing cards and I just had to CASE them. I'm still working on the second, so I'll post that tomorrow. For the thank you card I took inspiration from Senior Trendsetter, Faith Hofrichter. I just purchased the Act of Kindness and Birdie Wishes from There She Goes and was all too happy to ink these sets up. Now that I've made this card...I don't want to give it away. I hope that Jordan likes it as much.

Well, have a wonderful day and I look forward to hearing from you.

A beautiful card for such a generous company! The blue and black are so striking against the white background and the popped up elements of the bird add a fun 3-D touch!!
