Set of Four Apple Thank You Cards

Hi everyone--it's Sonya from Sonya's Paper Trail.   Today is the first day of school for my son, so it seemed fitting that I share a "school" themed project today.  It seems far too early for school to be starting.  For some parts of the country/world, I know you have a few weeks left of your vacation; but for us, we're back to the routine of school today.

I have a good friend who is a middle school math teacher.  Her son and mine play sports together and we've become very good friends over the past year.  She has mentioned how she always likes to have thank you notes on hand, so I decided I'd give her a few cards to be able to use throughout the school year.

The cut file came from the Silhouette Online Store.  It included the background card, apple, stem, leaf and the tag.  The whole package!

I used some Stampin' UP! patterned paper that I've had around for a long time.  I love simple stripes and polka dots.  So very useful and versatile.

I used a different "thank you" stamp for each card.  Each image was a My Craft Spot stamp that I had in my stash.  I also had the baker's twine in my collection for a couple of years.  

Even though everything I used was on the older side, I'm positive my friend won't care one bit and will be thrilled to have some fun cards to use.  Do you know a teacher who might enjoy some cards?  It might be fun to surprise him/her with a matching set! 

I hope you have a wonderful day and have time to do something creative!
