Thank U Teacher

The school year is winding down and I thought I would try my hand at a thank you card for one of my daughter’s teachers.

I used Back 2 School pencil from Meljen’s Designs. I erased the “Back 2 School” that comes on the image and printed my own sentiment.

Today kicks off the new challenge at the Meljen’s Designs blog. This week we are challenging you to “Go Coastal”. Have a coastal (or beachy) theme to your project. You can find all the details on the Meljen’s Designs blog. The new digital images released today on Whimsy Stamps are perfect with for the theme.

Thank you for stopping by!
