Teaher Appreciation Day

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, with today being Teacher Appreciation Day. I am sharing a card with you today that I created for CHA in Jan. I have made extra and will be giving this to the teachers whose rooms I work in. I am a 9-12 grade para and work in all math classes and one reading class this semester so have enjoyed the number break in my day a bit.

I stamped the image with permanent black ink onto watercolor paper and then colored her with Dual Brush Pens. The sentiment is also stamped and then underlined with a black Dual Brush Pen and colored along the edge with a soft brown. Mono Adhesive Permanent was used to adhere the panel pieces together. To make the image pop a bit, I used Foam Tabs to raise it.

I plan to give a card thanking the teachers for all their hard work and a homemade caramel apple. What are you doing for Teacher Appreciation Day/Week? I would love to hear from you as I’m always looking for new ideas. Here is a peek at some of the apples I made. I wrapped them in a cello bag and tied with  a tag.
