Thank You For Grade 2


I loosely used this Card Positioning Systems sketch to make a thank you card for one of the two Grade 2 teachers both my kids were blessed to have.   They are a  fabulous team teaching pair who have worked together for over 20 years and they are amazing teachers and ladies.  My kids absolutely adored them and I  love them to bits myself - still even pop into their classroom for a chat now and then.  They will be retiring this year and I know many moms will miss having them at our school, myself included.

While I'm at it, to all you teachers out there, thanks for making a difference in the lives of the kids you teach ((hugs))!

Still have about six thank you cards to make so I'm off to tackle the next one before the school year disappears on me!  Have a great day :)

Lovely colors - and a perfect take on the sketch. You're a aster with that dotted heart. I have yet to ink mind up. Love those nesties and that fabulous ribbon & flower =)

Love the way you've used this sketch! This is such a happy color combo, and I love the layered elements in the center.

What an awesome thank you card, Marisa!! I'm still making all of ours, too. Your design for this is beautiful, and the Grade 2 teacher who receives it is very much a lucky lady. :)

Great card for what sounds like two wonderful teachers. I am sure they will treasure having it.

Oh, you're so funny...yes, that same neighbor that buys my punches. LOL
