I am so excited. This is my first post for the TIOT for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design Store. This weeks challenge was to create a Back to School gift for either a teacher or student. I decided on making a teacher gift. I used Rebecka, she's one of Anki's Sweetheart Series 2. This stamp line is exclusive to Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. She was perfect for the project. She is stamp, heat embossed and colored with Copcis. I used a spica glitter pen on her stick, crystal effects on the chalkboard ,her headband and the red hat. I also glossed the worm and leaves on the apple. I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations Wednesday - Gift

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything but a Card

Lili of the Valley - So Charming

Forever Friends - Anything but a Card

I have a couple of friends who are teachers and they have to buy their own supplies so I made a gift basket with pencils, paper clips, glue sticks, erasers, ruler, and a bookmark. I made a double pocket for the ruler and bookmark.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and take a look. Please let me know what you think.
