Back to School - Unity Style!

Although it is only the middle of summer, Etsy has been showcasing a lot of back to school gear/items these past few weeks and so I thought I better get myself in gear too! :) I have two cards to share with you today that would be great for teachers.

First up is one I created based on the SCS sketch challenge this week.

A is for apple, B is for bird, and C is for cupcake...cute, right?! Although great for a teacher, I thought this card would also be fun to give to a child in preschool or kindergarten, either for a 'Yeah your starting school' sort of card or a graduation card. I used stamps from these Unity kits: School Rock Star, Mix up of Cuteness, and Giggle Grove.

Next is a clean and simple card that I created for Jeanne's stamp and go challenge yesterday.

For this card I used the adorable apple stamp from Unity's Mix up of Cuteness set and the thanks sentiment is from the Flirty Flowers set. I used to teach preschool and know that teachers can never have too many thank you cards! :) Teachers are such important people in our children's lives and we often give them gifts to show them our appreciation. So, teachers need lots of cards that they can give to parents and kids to show their appreciation too! I thought this card was so cute that I made a set of them for my Etsy shop!

Thanks for visiting today! Be sure to check out Angela's blog for a list of all the other talented ladies posting Unity projects on their blogs today!

These are so cute, Kerry, simply adorable!! ( I got the "simply adorable" stamp when my 3 yr. old grand daughter was here to visit. I told her she was "simply adorable" and then she started to say things were "sim-pwy adow-a-boe"!) Anyway, absolutely great cards, teachers will be so psyched to get them!
