Just Add Ink for a Teacher Thank you!

Hello there,

I hope your week is off to a really great start! 

This week I am busy making teacher thank you gifts and cards for my kids to take to school with them - the count down is on and they are just SO exctied to be finished school!

I stopped on over to Just Add Ink for some inspiration and what did I see...

Just Add Ink #267....Just Add Typography!

I am sure everyone is having the same thought....what does that mean?  So they also gave us the definition:
"Using font or type to create print"

So, I had a great idea.  Use the paper from the new lightweight DSP paper pack.  One of the sheets has big bold numbers on it and the colour scheme is Basic Black and Very Vanilla - perfect for my two older son's who have male teachers!  

Here is my card...

I wanted to use up some of my Chalkboard paper that has recently retired (sniff, sniff) a great option for a teacher card, don't  you think?
 I wanted to coordinate the gift bag so I used some of this great DSP to cover the side of a paper gift bag.  Inside, I added some treats with handmade tag.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy stampin'
