Argyle Apple -- MFTWSC122 -- Teacher Appreciation Part 2

Hi there!!
I'm back today with more teacher goodies!!! 
I have a card and a sneak peek of a little treat basket that I am working on...
Have you started your prep for teacher appreciation week?
It starts next WEEK!
Some schools celebrate the whole week long 
and others honor their teachers on Tuesday, which is teacher appreciation day.
Since I was a kindergarten teacher and I know how hard of a job it is, 
I try to shower my teachers with goodies all week long 
and give a big gift @ the end of the week.
It's my small way of saying thank you and celebrating all of their hard work!

Here's the sketch from the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club:

Here's a sneak peek of something that I am working on...
It's a teeny tiny treat basket for my kids to deliver to their teachers on Tuesday. 
I'm just getting started with it, but I LOVE it!!!!!!!!
