Teacher Thankyou's

Here I am leaving thing's till the last minute again. LOL. As the school year approaches an end I wanted to make a little card for both the kids main teachers. I just got this Changito set with one of my birthday gift cards at Archiver's. It was just so cute I could not resist it. As you know apes are my biggest weakness.

The stamp set is called 'school for changito' and is apparently an Archiver's exclusive. Cardstock for this card was Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore and Only Orange. My buckle is a can tab (this is my way of recycling.lol) and the ribbon was from a $1 tube from Target (I shall be checking the label when I buy any of these in future as it only gave me 12 inches of this color which was almost not enough). To finish it off I put a prima with a silver brad at the edge of the sentiment. I used my Mega and Giga oval punches for the image.
Thanks for looking
Hugs
Nic
