Teacher Appreciation

My youngest grandson will be graduating kindergarten in a few days. He has really done well! This card is made for his teacher. The card is 5 x 6 1/2 from a Recollections pack. I used two different papers for the background that I have had for quite some time. The top border is from a chalk board looking paper. The corkboard paper had the yellow and blue mat blocks and I cut the paper to take advantage of those blocks.

Cricut cartridges:
A Child's Year - Apple/silhouette is on page 49 and cut at 2 1/2 inches.
Simply Sweet - Phrase "thank you" is on page 74 and cut at 2 1/2 inches. I thought the style of the letters would be good on this card.  Letter "a" on page 32 cut 3/4 inch; letter "b" on page 33 cut 3/4 inch; letter c on page 34 cut 3/4 inch.
Simply Charmed - Pencil on page 53 cut 2 inches

Cuttlebug Folder:
Measure by Measure - Numbers on the chalkboard mat

Fantabulous Cricut - Teacher Feature- card or project for a teacher and use red on it
BBTB2 - Apple core from Preserves cartridge. You can use any apple core or apple from any cart if you do not have Preserves. I do not have that cartridge.
Throwback Thursday Challenge -- Use Doodlecharms (or an older cartridge if you do not have Doodlecharms) and color blue somewhere. I used A Child's Year and Simply Sweet.
Hope you enjoy!
