Crafty Chicks Blog Hop - Back to School

Welcome to the Crafty Chicks Blog Hop - our theme this month is Back to School.  If you are coming from Krysthle's blog you are in the right place!

I like to give gifts to my kids' teachers throughout the year but especially at the beginning of the year.  Both my boys were excited about the teachers they got this year so we decided to thank them with some personalized cards.

I downloaded the free printable from g*rated blog here
Saved as an image and edited it in
Then I printed them out onto CTMH Scholastic paper
(which happens to be on sale right now for only $1.75)

Then I created the card bases with Colonial White Cardstock, and matted the Scholastic paper onto Kraft Cardstock for the finished card look.  I think the teacher's liked them - I know I did ;)

Our hop is sponsored this month by 3 Girl Jam
