I Appreciate You


Well Hello there,

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. Mine was really good. I got to have a lie in, breakfast in bed, some lovely flowers and a gift card to my favorite craft store. I couldn't have asked for more.



Today I wanted to show you what I made for the kids teachers last week. It was teacher appreciation week and even though I had given to a collection for the kids teachers it just didn't feel right if I didn't make something for them myself.



I had seen a mini magazine file that holds cards on a blog while surfing http://www.stampinwithblythe.com/2009/03/magazine-files-downsized-into-card-files.html and then my friend Joani sent me one she had made. As luck would have it she also put a tutorial on her blog http://joaniscardsmadebyhand.blogspot.com/2009/04/magazine-rack-tutorial.html which made them very easy to follow. I sat down last week and made one each for the kids teachers and once I got going I just had to make one for me. lol.



I did cheat with the cards I put in them though. I ran out of time and popped to Michael's for some of their awesome $1 packs of note cards. I found some that went pretty well with my cardstock.

Well that's all for now. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post. My Birthday is fast approaching and I'm gonna have a little blog candy here for you all to win.

Hugs
Nic
