TMS 325: Thank a Teacher

A friend of mine (for whom I would do anything) recently asked to have several of my cards to put in her school's silent auction.  I've been trying to think of cards that might be valuable.

For me, during the bustle of the holiday season, getting a great teacher gift is often a low priority.  Not because teachers aren't important (FAR from it) but because it's just ANOTHER thing to do during this crazy season.  I knew then that making her a few instant Christmas gifts would probably be a highly biddable item.

I'm thinking about getting a mug from an inexpensive place, putting this card and maybe a Starbucks gift card inside and BOOM -- instant gift for the silent auction.  Still thinking it through.  I'm sure I'll post a picture of the finished project later.

I'm using the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I tried putting the image behind the apple strip but kinda hated there so I DID modify it a bit.

I'm also using the "How 'Bout Them Apples" theme from Dragonfly Journeys.  I was kinda surprised to find that I DO have an apple themed image!

This card features the Doodle Pantry image "Books and Apple" (psst: it's currently FREE over on the Doodle Pantry site) I encourage a visit to Laurie's site.  There are so many cute school related images there sure to suit your needs.

  2. Great idea Joanna you could also put a small chocolate bar or loose individually wrapped ones in the mug and maybe some of those mini marshmallows. Great prize for a silent auction. Just think sitting back with a cuppa a good book and chocolate what more would you want???

  3. Hi Joanna! What a perfect teacher's gift that would be so appreciated and I just love the papers you used too. Thank you so much for joining my challenge this week :)
