Have you Thanked a teacher today?

Both my parents were teachers, and I was fortunate to have many excellent teachers throughout my school years...so I grew up with a higher than average appreciation for teachers. This Bella is just adorable, and perfect for those holiday gifts and end of year thank yous for the teachers in your life!

The ribbon here was part of the package I got from my friend Yvette, and helped inspire the colors for the card. I used Marigold Morning for the base, and decided to do a different fold today - trying to get out of my A2 rut!!

I stamped the flannel background in Marigold on the card "front" then folded it back. The ribbon was wrapped around and adhered with SNAIL. I watercolored the Bella with some Marigold, Pink Passion, Real Red, Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, and Blush Blossom. Then, I returned to my favorite ticket corner punch to clip the corners before lightly sponging the edges with Garden Green and mounting on a layer of Garden Green. I used gold brads for the corners, and then adhered this piece on top of the ribbon.

I was searching for a good sentiment, and decided this one from Wish You Were Here (a retired SU! set from last summer's mini!) would work great because isn't that the truth for all the teachers out there? I'm not totally happy with this card...but figured I'd post anyway! This was the last of my Bellas (well, there were 2 more that Stephanie sent, but they were confiscated by Customs - Julia Customs that is!! Perhaps I should post one of HER Bella cards!!)

I'm really hoping the Bellas I ordered make it to California within the next week so that hubby can bring them back with him. Otherwise, I just might go through Bella-withdrawal!!! ;-)

Hope you all have a wonderful Adventure today!

TFL,
Jana
