All in a Row

I finished all of the year end teacher gifts this morning. Each teacher will receive a knit dishcloth with an apple motif, and a set of 6 monogrammed notecards. I used plain kraft gift bags from Target. To dress them up a bit, I stamped a swirl in the corner in Brick Red chalk ink and then overstamped in white chalk ink. I love the folksy look this gives on the kraft bag, and it's a super simple way to dress up the bag and make it look more cohesive. Here's a close-up:

I made a simple 3x3 card using the PTI Little Lady set to write a note of thanks to each teacher. I really like these and I hope the teachers will too!

Now I'm working on finishing the PIF's I gave away on my blog last week. Dawn's scarf is nearly 1/2 done and Susan's hat is about 1/2 done too. I'm hoping to post pictures soon.

i love the whole idea and especially the cool bags. And by the way, happy 40th. I love the decade changing year for birthdays. I loved turning 20, 30, 40, then year I get the 60th and look forward. You look very good for 40. Must be all the happy knitting and stamping you do ...that and blogging.
