You Can Learn a lot of Things from the Flowers...

Hee hee...that's from my FAVORITE movie of all time, Alice in Wonderland :)

You can also learn a lot of things from your 4th grade teacher, and on that note, I have some cards to share with you today, using this awesome flower from the December KOTM, {Delightful Moments}.    I made this set as a teacher gift for my 4th grade DD's teacher, Mrs. Tate.



This time of year it's so hard for me to come up with a teacher gift that means as much as I credit these teachers for doing.  We are SO blessed with such a wonderful school and the teachers are especially wonderful.


So, in addition to going in on a class gift, I wanted to make her something special; something from the heart.   I asked my DD and found out that she loves earthy, organic things and bright colors....so I came up with these.  I used the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry line of DP-LOVE IT!  The fun fabric brads came from BG Nook and Pantry line as well.


I left the notecards blank so that she could use them for almost anything, included some envelopes, and also created a box to put them in.  For more info on the box (I used an awesome Ippity quote for it, too :), I'd love for you to visit my BLOG to check out some more pics!

Thank you SO much for coming by today and for letting me share more UNITY with you.  You have no idea how much it means to me or how big my smile was last night knowing that Monday was coming up and it was again my turn to share something with you, who are so inspiring!

For even MORE inspiration, the fabulous RONA is GROWING IN UNITY all week long!  Check out her fabulous blog:http://scraprona.blogspot.com

Have a wonderful week everyone!  I will leave you with two quotes that really got me as I was typing this: 


"Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers."  ~Author Unknown

"I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers."  ~Claude Monet
