This card was made for The Challenge #36 and Simon Monday Challenge.
Okay, so you may think I'm crazy, but I really did use the Challenge's inspiration photo. The challenge is to celebrate teachers. Well, I'm a licensed teacher and I come from a long line of teachers in my family and most of my friends are still teachers. My husband's job has us moving A LOT, so it's very hard to maintain a teaching job when you up and move during the school year...so I'm not teaching...
Anyway, long story short, I truly feel that our teachers are superheroes. Not only do they teach our children, but they are also psychologists, mother/father figures, disciplinarians, and so on and so on. It's one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs a person can have. Even though I don't have any children yet, I can truly appreciate what it is that my friends and family are doing. I think that getting a non-traditional thank you card as a teacher is a wonderful surprise. So...
As a teacher, I know I would have loved to get something like this. It's not a typical apple or pencil card, but I think it conveys thankfulness in a really cute way!
