Thanks for Believing in Me -- PDCC27


Hello! It's time for another Play Date Cafe challenge. Mona has chosen the inspiration photo above and the colors Light Green, Light Blue and Off White this week. Jen Tapler returns as our Celebrity Guest Designer for one more week, and I am your hostess this week!


Since Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the corner, I took this opportunity to make a card for one of Sabrina's teachers using the Taylored Expressions set, Make the Grade. I kept this one simple for a change, punching some squares from a subtle ABC patterned paper. Here's the finished inside:


I just love this sentiment.. This has been an exceptional school year for Sabrina, and we are so thankful to all of her great teachers and para aides.

Are you ready to play along? We'd love to see your creations! Be sure to go over to the Cafe and link your post. If you use an online gallery, please use the keyword PDCC27. And, be sure to visit my PDCC teammates for some wonderful inspiration.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
