Teacher's Appreciation Giveaway!

Before we get to the giveaway I wanted to share the second gift idea.  Today's gift is made using my favorite Cricut die cut -- the hedgehog!  These little guys are so cute and very versatile.  I can adapt him to nearly any season or occasion. 

I figured everyone could always use a little thank you notes so that's how I decided on the "note of Thanks" notecards.  I couldn't resist adding the apple shaped gift bag.... It is for a teacher after all.  If I get a few extra minutes I plan on making a little white scallop tag to hang from the stem.
Materials used:
Hedgehog: Cricut cartridge B is for Boy
Small apple: on Silhouette studio by Jamie Koay
Apple basket: on Silhouette studio by Samantha Walker
Cardstock - Bazzill

These little cards measure 3 x 3 inches. The hedgehog was cut using B is for Boy cartridge and cut at 1 3/4 inches.  The apple was cut using my Silhouette and the message was computer printed before I cut the white cardstock. 

Don't have a diecut machine to make your own notecards?  Make your own without a diecut using pretty decorative cardstock OR you can enter to win a set of 6 of these little cards for yourself!!  That's right, I'll send you 6 of these mini cards and envelopes.  You can give them away or keep them for yourself. 

You get one entry for each of the following:
