This week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge on SplitcoastStampers is honoring a very special teacher named Barb Bratvold. Mrs. Bratvold started a special club in 1995 called "The Kindness Club". The boys and girls in the club learn about the "Golden Rule" and being kind to others. Part of that learning is making and sending cards to people who are ill or need cheering up.
The Teapotters are going to surprise Mrs. Bratvold with some cards of her own. We were challenged to bring thank yous, apples, school bells or other school themed cards.
Here's my card for Mrs. Bratvold:

Happy Earth Day! The May Arts Ribbon Lady has challenged a few of the Ribbonistas to get creative and find ways to use ribbon in re-cycle and re-use projects.
Of course, you know the Ribbon Lady loves to give away ribbon, so there's a prize for hopping along with us as we share some crafty re-use/re-cycle ideas with you.
If you arrived here from DeeDee's blog, you're in the right place.
I went through my laundry room closet and came up with a variety of olive, pickle and I think what may be a salsa jar. The lids are long gone.
I added a bunch of flowers from the local grocery store and here's what I came up with.....
Ok....want to know what's up for grabs for commenting and hopping? Check this out!
