An apple for the teacher

This is a card for my friend's son to give to his teacher.
The information which I was given were the names of the teacher and the class. The rest was up to me.
I chose red for the Ruby birthstone challenge at Daring Cardmakers combined with a gingham pattern for Simon Says Stamp's Check it out challenge! I decided to do the old faithful apple and books. I didn't have a book image large enough for this A5 format. So I drew the pile of books using the shapes in MS Word. I think it looks quite like a pile of books! Whilst I was at it I did the sentiments too!
The rest is kinda straightforward... Cuddly Buddly paper and Cuttlebug corners.

  11. great looking books Chrissie...

    you get away with sending thankyou cards to your childs teacher when they're younger. then they plain refuse to take them. Only recently i did a thank you card from me to my sons head of year because she let him off school so we could all go away for a weekend - i'd explained about the rubbish year we'd had... he never gave it to her and the momentum went - i know better now and will post in future.... boys!
