{Just Rite Thank Yous}

One of the sweetest things about being a teacher---especially a "Specialist" of any kind is that you teach all of the students in that school. I teach Lower School Music at my school so I feel like I have about 160 extra children! I love them---they make me smile---most of the time. Today was the last day of school (YEA!!--on so many levels, but one of the big ones is more stamping time!) Anyway, at this time of year I always need a lot of Thank you notes. I was inspired by Taylor VanBruggen's Fine Stationery post here. OK, I copied them!!! They were so fast and easy. I didn't do the lovely box and seals---just the note cards! Check out her blog---she's one of my favorites!

The monogram on my card is made with the Just Rite DIY Manual Monogram Stamper. (You can buy all of these at Taylor's store, too.) Taylor used a Papertrey Alphabet & Borders & Corners set, which I own and have used, but I wanted to see how this new monogram stamper would do. I used a wooden mounted set and I loved it. All 10 of my cards/notes took me less than an hour to make---and that includes the normal 7 year old boy interruptions, which I won't go into right now! Anyway, if you need some quick cards for yourself or a friend. I HIGHLY recommend these---they were so simple and fun to do!
ETA: I had another set that I must have deleted in the processing--so, here are two of the three! I made 10 total.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
