W2CB #53: If You Can Read This...

Hi, everyone!

It's the second Wednesday of the month... which means it's time for a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge!

Our words of inspiration for this challenge are:

If you can read this, thank a teacher.

  • Naturally, an education themed-project might come to mind as another school year comes to an end. Perhaps you'll be inspired to make a special thank you for one or more of your child's/grandchild's teachers. 
  • Perhaps you'll be inspired to make something special for a good friend who has shared some life-changing advice. 
  • Or, maybe you'll decide to show a special mentor how much you appreciate her/his help. My card was made to thank Kim Hughes of Paper Smooches for her many kindnesses. 

As you're mulling over these words, remember we're an equal opportunity crafting challenge blog. This means we accept all types of projects.  :)

Hope you'll stop by W2CB and check out our amazing DT's crafty interpretations... and then stop back by to link up a card of your very own. See you in the W2CB Gallery.  :)


  1. Hi Sybrina! What a sweet card you made here, perfect background for your theme! Your tags are so cute the way you've layered them and I love your flower!!! Hope all is well with you :-)

  2. Sybrina, this card is so sweet! Love that adorable little floral tag and the alpha patterned paper is perfect for the challenge!

  3. Great card, and I really appreciate you taking on the entire challenge this month! Thank you!! I am (slowly) getting back to my craft room.

  4. Love your pretty card, Sybrina. The little flower on the layered tags that look like bookmarks is cute, and I LOVE that alphabet paper.

    Thank you also for the kind remarks re: my card.
