Paying it forward


About a week ago, one of Kendra's high school teachers mailed a personal note letting us know how well she's doing in her History class along with a comment about her talent for writing--wow, what a great mail day! I was so taken with this small act of kindness, not to mention the swell of pride I was feeling--yeah, Kendra!

Because of that, I've decided to pay it forward: making simple note cards for the teachers at my elementary school to use in a similar manner, on a voluntary basis of course. I'm planning to put these cards in a basket and set them in the teacher lounges, sort of like the delicious treats that some bring to share, except these will be calorie-free!

The stamping here is pretty simple--a sheet of Riding Hood Red stamped repeatedly with the pencil image from Kim Hughes' Making The Grade set, cut into 1"x5.5" strips, layered on a Kraft base, finished with a large oval stamped with a sentiment from the same set, set atop a Curly Label punch in black. BTW, our school colors are {cardinal} red and black!

Thanks for stopping over today!

PS -- the cheese curds? All gone! Mmmm-mmm good! We all loved 'em, especially Carter. :)
