Digital Tuesday Challenge: Teacher Apprecation Week

Well it's Teacher Apprecation Week this week and the challenge at Digital Tuesday Challenge is to create a card or project to Thank A Teacher!
Since I know many are tight on funds, but love to give from the heart and want to give something useful, I decided a bookmark would be the ideal thing to give a teacher! I love this corner bookmark, it's super simple to make and I found a tutorial on how to make it here.
I used one of the newest images from Digital Stamp Oasis, A Day in School (isn't Susie Squirrel so adorable? I just love her!). I printed this image out 2X making one 3X larger than the first. I colored my larger image first (the apple) and cut it out and then stickled to give it extra "oomph", I then colored the image in it's entirety and used my circle Nestabilities to cut it out. I wanted to keep my embellishments to a minimum as I didn't want them to mar up any pages in a book.
Be sure to join us this week at Digital Tuesday Challenge, our prize this week are the winners choice of images from Digital Stamp Oasis.
I hope you enjoy, it was a simple project that you and your children can do together to thank their teacher(s) this week. Thanks for looking, a few photos below, as well as the recipe.
