The Shabby Shoppe & Pure Innocence Hybrid cards...You're the Best Teacher set!

Hope you are enjoying the weekend! I have been so lazy this weekend, it isn't even funny. I've done nothing around the house but I was able to make up some cards for the kid's teachers since it is almost the end of the school year and I don't want to be scrambling at the last minute!
We have been blessed with really great teachers this year and if your child has ever had, a not so great teacher, then you know what a blessing it is, to have a great one. I wanted to make some cute cards to say thanks! I decided to the make "hybrid" cards...I used a digi paper kit called Summer Cottage from the Shabby Shoppe that I absolutely love and the tags are from the Summer Cottage Teacher's Pet gift set. I also used Digi Pure Innocence images from Heather Ellis Etsy shop.

This card is for Hannah's teacher, Mr.Ryan. She also had him in grade 2 and we just love him to bits! He is such a wonderful teacher and really brings out the best in Hannah. I really struggled on how girlie to make this card and if I should use the PI girl or boy but this little girl is suppose to be Hannah so I went with her! I printed the digi papers and used the brown pattern, again, to lessen the girlie factor, then used some brown cotton trim brads and a button with twine....no flowers.

Here is the inside.

This card is for Kieran's classroom teacher, Mrs. Poechman and I made the other one for his Resource teacher Mrs. Brownson. I got my Prima flower fix on these two cards, lol and I used this cute little Boy with Dog image and coloured all the images with my Copics and used Melissa Frances rub-ons, MM letter stickers, MM buttons with Scrappers Floss and some Kaisercraft pearls.

Well, thanks for stopping by and havin' a wee peek! Maybe I should really muster up some energy and tidy up around her or something....yuck,he,he,he!
