Balloon Bears

Here are some new piecings that have been added to the store recently. You can purchase these or any other of my piecings at Down Memory Lane.



These would be great to add that little something to a birthday scrapbook page or even use it for a birthday card!

Pattern used from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. 

Thanks!

Teacher Appreciate Gifts Blog Hop



Welcome to the Teacher Thank You Gifts Blog Hop ! You should have just come from Cyndie's blog. If you're just joining us and wish to start from the beginning, please hop on over to Dena's blog. Teacher Appreciation Week this year begins on May 7th and ends on May 11th. If you're looking for some teacher thank you gift ideas, you've come to the right place! Each of the designers in today's hop is sharing a wonderful gift idea for a teacher. We hope you have fun hopping with us while picking up some great ideas!

For my Thank You gift I made...... a Thank You card set. I just love these colors! They look so bright and cheery all spread out like this !


Each card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The colored pieces of cardstock are measured at 4 x 5 1/4, just enough to have the white border. My sentiment piece of cardstock is measured at 1 x 3 and I lined it up with the edge of the colored cardstock. 

Here is a close-up of one of my favorite colors - 


Stamps, Ink, Paper is all from Papertrey Ink. If you've never tried their products before - you should! Their cardstock is fantastic! I believe it's 110 lb cardstock so it's great for making gift boxes ect. Real sturdy cardstock. 

I've randomly stamped violets on the colored cardstock and then took a sponge wedge, inked with Fresh Snow Ink and lightly used a circular motion in the inside of each flower. It just gives them a little ....Pop!

I hope you've enjoyed my gift for Teacher Appreciation. Please be sure to "Hop" along to Jamie's blog next... but don't forget to comment for a chance for some blog candy! (read below for details)
