Thanks for being an egg-cellent Teacher....

Hi!

{Honored this card was a Die Cuttin Diva Showcase Pick on 4/15/14, Design Challenge Winner at My Creative Time on 4/17/14}

I have a card for my son to give his teacher! She has been a huge positive influence for him, so I don't mind doing extra treats and cards for him to show how much he appreciates her at the holidays. She is still on emergency leave, so he can give it to her when she returns after the break.

All dies and stamps used are from My Creative Time.
Hold on to your hats, but I didn't use any patterned paper at all on this card! I used all left over pieces of cardstock from previous makes! :-))) The top aqua panel is embossed and I took white paint over it and set it to dry. 

Isn't this little die set cute?  It's a stamp and coordinating die set. The Postage frame is separate. 
I die-cut and then stamped the speckled row of eggs at the bottom. A length of yellow seam binding was wrapped around the card front and tied in a fussy bow embellishing with a button and twine. 
A sentiment perfect for an egg-cellent teacher! 

Well, I am going to wrap this up! I have a jam packed day ahead. Starting with Physical Therapy. Seems this is still going to be a normal part of my week for awhile. Baseball practice tonight, Opening Ceremonies tomorrow followed by the first little league game of the season. We've already had one travel ball game, but we will have a break from travel due to the holiday weekend. It also looks like we are catching our local farm team game Saturday night. So I take that back...it's a jammed packed weekend.  :-)

So much better to stick with the physical therapy because it means you'll be all better faster! (I know how boring/painful it can be, though. Ugh!)
How awesome that the short stack has SUCH a great teacher on his side - it makes all the difference in the world, it really does :) Love that you let her know how much that means to your family!
