Flowers and a Pink Zebra

Hello all.  Hope you had a great weekend!  Today I have two things to share.  Monday's over at Catch the Bug is ABC day - Anything But a Card.  This week is also Teacher Appreciation Week so I'm making these little boxes for Bean's teachers to include candy and a gift card.
I hate to say it, but I really have no clue what is an appropriate teacher's gift!  Anyway, here is a close up - I'm using Flower Pot 4 from Bugaboo Stamps.  The sentiment is from my new Stampin Up set A Word For You.
This meets the following challenges:
********NEXT*******
And my next share is a card I made for a swap with Paper Pretties.  Isn't this zebra SO cute?
Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring their challenge this week: USE RIBBON!  Where is my ribbon you ask?  Well, I forgot.  I was so busy looking for the right paper and layout that I completely forgot what the challenge was.
I'm putting together a few all-occasion cards for a gift to include this little cutie.  Can you read the sentiment?  It reads:  Pink is the New Black.  As for my fabulous layout, check out Sketchy Thursday at Eat Sleep Stamp.  And with all the pink, I will also be entering this in the Pink & Cute challenge at Crafty Mess Challenge Blog.

Fantastic zebra card, Lola, and if this doesn't take the Top honors for using the sketch at Eat, Sleep, Stamp, I'll be surprised. :-D Fabulous, and I love the way the pink just pops against those black strips. Wonderful!!

Tracy said...

I just saw this adorable project and pink zebra and LOVE LOVE them....oh my gosh....I have to copy...I mean CASE. As a teacher for 33 years and in the HIGH SCHOOL, I rarely got gifts....elementary teachers make out like a bandit. What do they like.....food, homemade soup....a $3 gift certificate for a cup of good coffee at Dunkin Donuts....homemade cookies, chocolate....just a thank you card. OH....and a cheap black pen with a big flower taped to it so it's not easy for someone to walk off with it from my desk. Think I will post that tomorrow just for you...haha for the next teacher appreciation.
