Apple of My Eye

Teachers have a big job and I love showing them just how special they are! So, today I started working on my first day of school "teacher" gifts. I made some quick note cards with my cricut today, using Doodlecharms & Base Camp Cartridges. I even embossed the leaf with my cuttlebug using a swirl emboss folder. For an added touch I sponged around the apple to show off a little more dimension, hard to see in photo. I plan on putting these in an small apple basket with some school supplies and maybe some fresh apples. It is hard to believe school starts next week....I don't think I'm ready!

I'm finally feeling like my self again, I've been sick for over a month and I think the doctor's finally have a handle of what is going on! Yeah! I'm excited that I don't have to have surgery right now, I'll know more in 4 weeks, but right now I'm enjoying getting back to being me!!
