More Teacher Thank You's

As promised, here are the last three of the five Teacher Thank You notes I designed for a friend's son to give to his teachers. This first one ended up being one of my favorites. I used Crushed Curry as the card base and love how it looks with the black and red!

Here's a more jungle-like theme. I like how this one turned out too- actually I like them all or I wouldn't have included them for her to choose from. The sentiment circle on this one is from the old retired set called Riveting. I love the versatility of circular sentiments like this! Colors here are Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and a tiny More Mustard brad. The leaves are from the Little Leaves Sizzlit and the Big Shot.
This one is a CASE of a birthday card I did a long time ago. I was so happy with the original that it is the first thing that came to mind for thank you notes from a little boy. The colors and sentiment are different and on this one the train is simply stamped as opposed to being tediously cut out. I just couldn't see myself doing ten of these if that train had to be cut out! (Color Combo from the Color Throwdown challenge this week!)

So there you have it! Why don't you check out the two from yesterday then post a comment here letting me know which is your favorite. Keep in mind, these are intentionally simple so they can be mass produced (my friend needs ten!). Then I'll let you know what she decided!

Thanks for visiting today! Have a great weekend!
