Today was my son's pre-school graduation and I wanted to give both of his teachers a small thank you gift. 

I decided to get them each some of the 8.75oz hand soaps from Bath & Body Works.  They were on sale and I ended up getting 6 of them for only $20.

While I was packing their gifts I realized that I forgot about making them thank you cards.  Since this was at the last minute I needed cards that were super quick and easy. 

I didn't have time to come up with my own design so I decided to look through some of my favorite cards and I decided to case this card made by StamperSharon. 

I used the same stamps and colors as she did, but I added two score lines just above my sentiment and I used different color ribbon. 

Sharon has glitter on her card, but I decided not to add any, I was in too much of a hurry to finish these.  I also used certainly celery for my card base on both of my cards.

The circles were inked up and then stamped off first onto a scrap piece of paper before I stamped them onto my card.  I wanted to color to be more subtle.

I've never used my Sweet & Sassy stamp set before, I actually had it on my sell pile and I took it back out.  I'm glad I decided to keep this stamp set because I really like this card that Sharon made.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you tomorrow!

Stamps: Sweet & Sassy, Small Script
Card Stock: White, Certainly Celery
