 Using the set, Multi-Step Grizzly Bear Wishes Clear Stamps,

I created this one layered, C&S card for my youngest son’s to give to his teacher at the end of this school year. This year he had a male teacher who kept his kids in stitches (especially my son!) with lots and lots of jokes! So this card seemed very fitting to give to his teacher! 🙂


Plus… the KSS Forum Giveaway Game –
