This card is for my older daughter's 2nd grade teacher.
She is young, cool, & trendy and always wears dresses to class.
Everyone calls her the school's best dressed teacher!
I wanted to give her a fun card to start the year and so I came up with this card
based on the composition books they use in their grade level.

Coincidentally, the class homework assignment over this long weekend was to
decorate the cover of their composition books!!   LOL ) :) :)
I hope this card really makes her smile on Tuesday!!


Here are the products I used on my card & the links to the store:
The Greeting Farm: Cheeky Lessons
Bazzill Card Stock: Candy Necklace
MFT Die-namics: Blueprints 5
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
X-Press It Blending Card
Copic Markers

Here is the blog hop order & Joni is up next.

  3. Cheeky indeed! I have no doubt that the "best dressed teacher" will more than just smile at this incredibly crafty card! She will likely tear up with joy. I sure would :-). Nicole Honey, you're so caring and thoughtful. It takes a special person to put so much thought, energy and detail into creating such a personalized gift. It shows how aware you are in identifying the beauty and uniqueness of others.
