Two little thank you's...

Good morning my dear blogging friends.

 I was recently asked to make two fruit and candy baskets for the staff and teachers at our neighborhood school. We work closely with them, taking 25 students, 5 days a week, into our after school program at church where we mentor them, tutor them and teach them the Bible. They also have a healthy snack and plenty of play time to burn off their energy.

 I help out two afternoons a week and totally love it. So when the challenge was given me I decided that a thank you card for each basket was totally necessary. The cards are really bare on the outside. I knew the cards would be discarded and didn't want to lose too many embellies to the trash. I'm just saying.... So here are the two cards. The colors I used are the colors chosen for our program. All the volunteers wear this pretty blue or a light green. The shirts have our logo and our names on them...but I digress.
 Here are my two cards :-)

This is #280 Tilda Loves Flowers.  She is colored with Copics and a little touch of Adirondack Lights in the backsground.

This sweetie is #308 Tilda with Many Hearts  I used Spellbinders Labels 10 for the shaped panels on each of the cards.
Here is a closer look at how I colored this Tilda.  Don't you just love the red hair?
And a closer peek at how I colored Tilda with many hearts. 

It's Friday, so I'm wishing you all a very crafty weekend!
