Teacher gifts

Hey all! If you are like me, you have kids finishing school soon. I realized this morning as I dropped H off at school that tomorrow is the last day, and I haven't even thought about getting his teacher anything! AAhhh!

After contemplating it, H decided that he wanted to get Mrs. B a Sonic gift card. I'm all over that...5 minutes later--literally--I was at Sonic buying it (and a Vanilla Dr. Pepper)!

Then, as was catching up on my blogs with Google Reader, I came across Heidi Swapp's blog with some amazing gift ideas! Oh, and did I mention that they are EASY too!

So, here is what I came up with--the card is made with my School's Out for Summer Kit, Word Art, and Add-on! (I put the gift card on the inside top and H wrote a note on the bottom.)

I then used the idea on Heidi's blog and made a gift/thank you combo for Mr. S (principal) and Mrs. B (teacher)! Seriously, it took me all of an hour to do it! (That included a Target run for the magazine and golf balls!)

So, THEN, i decided, why not help out my faithful blog readers too! And, I made a card for YOU!!! And, it's a freebie today!

So then, I know some of my friends aren't scrappers, but need this...and I want to help you out too...I've made instructions in Photoshop CS2. But, you can do the same thing in Word or Publisher.

Just put the picture/card front at the BOTTOM of a landscape 8-1/2 x 11. I put two so that I could make two cards on one sheet of card stock.

And, now print...not too hard, just make sure it's landscape!

If you love this idea, and I know you do!! You can download the card here!?!?!
