A Special Thank You!



I wanted to make a special thank you card for my grandson's kindergarten teacher. Her name is Mrs. Needles and she is a wonderful teacher. While I was visiting him I was able to visit his classroom, have lunch with him and go on a field trip. It was so much fun for me and will be a time that I cherish. Our challenge at ABC this time is lavender and lace. Perfect for this time of year!  I knew when I saw this fun image from Krista Smith that it would make a great thank you card. As you can see I added lots of lace, bling, butterflies and lavender. I hope you will also check out the beautiful creations of my fellow teammates. They are yummy! So grab your lavender and lace and join the fun!
I am entering this card in the following challeges:

My Song: Thank You
I dreamed I went to Heaven, you were there with me.
We walked upon the streets of gold beside the Crystal Sea.
We heard the angels singing, then someone called your name.
You turned and saw this young man, and he was smiling as he came.
He said, "Friend you may not know me now," and then he said, "But wait -
You used to teach my Sunday School, when I was only eight.
And every week you would say a prayer before the class would start.
And one day when you said that prayer,
I asked Jesus in my heart."
Thank you for giving to the Lord,
I am a life that was changed.
Thank you for giving to the Lord,
I am so glad you gave.

Your grandson's teacher is going to love this. Such a sweet thought and I'm sure she will be quite suprised. So few people actually send thank you cards anymore.
