W2CB #53: If You Can Read This...

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our a new W2CB Challenge.

As the calendar turns to May, the school year is coming to a close. Fittingly, we've chosen the following words to craft by these next few weeks.

If you can read this, thank a teacher.

While this quote may seem pretty straight forward, there are actually several ways to go with it.
  • DTers Celeste and Jennifer focused on the word "teacher" and made school-themed cards, with Celeste featuring the quote word-for-word and Jennifer referencing a beloved elementary-school saying. 
  • DTer Kristina honed in on the word "read" and created a card to capture the childhood joy of sharing a favorite book with a someone near and dear.
  • Finally,  I concentrated on the word "thank" and created a generic thank you card for the wonderfully talented and incredibly generous Kim Hughes (of Paper Smooches and Our Creative Space), who has been a card-making teacher/mentor to me through PS blog posts and sample cards. 





So whether you choose to make a card for a school-related card/gift for special teacher, a child/grandchild or a thank you for a dear friend/mentor, we hope you'll share your creation with us. Our challenge winner will receive $10 to an e-tailer of her/his choice and an invitation to join us as a Guest I-Teamer for an upcoming challenge.

See you in the W2CB Gallery!
