it's been a long time!

sorry about that- lots going on during our first 3 weeks of school!
Labor Day weekend our sweet baby girl turned 6!! SIX?! holy cow this kiddo's getting to be so big now! we had a big party for her just this past weekend & i have lots of pictures to drag off my camera & share but i haven't been feeling well enough. the past few days have me fighting a terrible cold- my sinuses are so swollen that it hurts to touch most of my face!i have zero energy which is a total bummer because around here, MOM really can't afford to go down! needless to say, not much crafty time happening at my house! ugh!

i never shared my 1st week of school/thank you teacher gift/card, so here it is:

MFT's super cute apple card template and a sweet school themed MFT Pure Innocence stamp made this one so fun to create!!
i set the card on top of a bag of yummy truffles (just for HER to enjoy) and i used some fun school book MFT digi-paper to wrap a chocolate bar for her kiddos (So they didn't eat hers LOL!) YUM! it all turned out really cute and my daughter's teacher just loved it!

Here's all the deets:
stamps: MFT's Pure Innocence line, You Make the Grade
sentiment on chalk board is from MFT's Pure Innocence line - Apple for You

ink: memento tuxedo black, clear embossing ink

paper: ginaK pure luxury heavy weight cardstock, bazzill red cardstock (textured) MFT cardstocks in wild cherry, sour apple, jellybean green, MFT school collection digi papers

accessories: copic markers, white embossing powder, MFT felt & MFT rolled flower dienamic, MFT glittered garnishes, cuttlebug & embossing folders (swirls and swiss dots), glossy accents, MFT Caramel Apple template.

Here's the inside:

my daughter dictated the words then signed it.
i'm telling you i am beat just from this easy post- so i'm off to make more hot tea & rest a bit! hope to be back soon!
