This week, the Teapotters are having a party for Barb! She is an AMAZING grade school teacher, who states that God not only gave her the job of teaching her students reading, writing and math, but also the importance of how to treat others. For more information about Barb's KINDNESS CLUB, the staggering 47,000+ cards they have made and distributed, and how to donate extra supplies you may have, see this thread:
**I recycle the inside of clean cereal or other dry food boxes for base die cuts and/or other pieces on my cards. On this card, I used it to cut all the darker kraft colored pieces and the three apples. For the apples, I colored the stem and leaf on each box cut, trimmed the printed paper apples, then attached them. The recycled box pieces add dimension to your cards. They usually don't cost much more to mail, if any, than a U.S. first class stamp. Tip: Weigh b4 you mail so you put the correct amount of postage on them so they don't come back to you! :)
