SFYTT - Teacher Thanks - Kyle's Kamp Thanks/Stats/photos

Good morning!

I can't believe it's the end of the school year. I know many have been out for weeks,  but we have a little over  a week of school left here, so I have to get to cracking on my year end teacher thank you cards. I can't even begin to describe how awesome my son's teacher was this year. He was super attached to her. He is not going to want to say goodbye. He keeps asking why she can't loop up next year. He's ready for summer, but not ready to say goodbye. 

I have had Reverse Confetti Class Act and Confetti Cuts in my possession and it has yet to see ink, so I thought this would be a good time to break them out. I followed the June SFYTT for inspiration.

I started with a Brown Kraft card base onto which I added my abc patterned paper.  I have really got my money's worth out of this sheet. I bought it when we lived in Hawaii, and I have used it on my son's pre-school teacher while living there, his Kindergarten teacher, 1st grade teacher, and now 2nd. I still have some of it left over. I have no idea who makes it either. I picked it up at a brick and mortar store while living there. Anywho, back to the card. I followed the sketch pretty closely adding a few die-cut stars and a scallop border trim. 

Here is the sketch.

I am also playing along with Darnell- NBUS - Stamps and coordinating dies
I am also sharing at Pile It On Challenge: Patterned Paper, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, D.L. Art - June Linky, Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge

I also wanted to say again how much we appreciated the support you showed our son when he was raising money for Pediatric Cancer Research for the Kyles Kamp Memorial Day Tournament. I can't tell you how touched we were! It brought tears to my eyes! Thanks for helping make a difference! Thanks for responding when I stepped out of my comfort zone and reached out! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Below I am sharing the stats for the overall money raised in the tournament weekend.
