Thank You

This school year our school took on a new program - Home Visits. I have completed nine visits and the parents rolled out the red carpet. I feel like a heel because I have not sent a personal thank you for all they have done. Although I have said thank you, nothing really says it like a personal card. I sat down this weekend and colored the school house image from my all time favorite stamp set from There She Goes - Believe In You. All the families that I have visited will get this card from me.

I know you all hear me say that TSG stamps are all my favorite, but Believe In You was what my pitch to Jessica, owner of TSG and she made my stamp set come true. I love this set because I use it all the time with my students.


Because I need to create a few of these beauties I wanted to make the card fairly simple. In blog hoping I found this fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - Challenge #25. I decided to play along. I love the simplicity of this sketch and my card went together fairly quickly. I do like it! 
I would also like to send a shout out to my new followers. I appreciate you're being here. I haven't figured out how to see who is new - so my apologies for not understanding blogger. Thank you for becoming a follower. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome one!!

Paper: Bazzill Basics (white); Little Yellow Bicycle (bus stop/pencil it in)

Oh, how I wish you were my kids' teacher! I love the idea of the home visits. And, as usual, your card is perfect for the occasion. That ribbon is awesome (I hoard my two-tone ribbons terribly!lol) and love the mix of perfect schooly papers :)

Totally love your card, Theresa, they will love it!
