whimsical wednesdays

happy wednesday :) this week at WW our awesomely talented faith has set our challenge   "back to school"  create a project related to school, no cards.  some ideas would be bookmarks, altered notebooks, a wall organizer or gifts for teacher throughout the year. i chose to make 4 different teacher gifts,  note cards with an altered paperclip and a little foodie treat to go along with them.  i think its nice to give a teacher a just because giftie  to let them know theyre appreciated. be sure to check out the rest of the awesome DTS creations as always youll be so inspired by them.

forwarned this post is gonna be picture heavy :)

for this card i used create a critter for the worm and plantin (italic feature) for the apple with the bite. the other apples are cut from the prepatterned paper which is making memories. i added foam stickies under them and  added colorbox fluid chalk and acrylic paint for the dots.
the inside reads youre the best
                           
                 the  red paperclip, and of course the beautiful apple treat matches  the card theme :)

These are all just so gorgeous. I'm a teacher and I just love it when I get a crafty person who belongs to a student. These would make the teacher feel so special. Love the lava coming out of the volcano. The critters are so cute!
