You Are a Blessing

You are a Blessing. 
Those are powerful words as it means that you have touched someone's life in a special way.  Since I had the lunch bags out from THIS project, I decided to get a head start on some teacher treats for Thanksgiving.  I hadn't planned on giving them something, but half-off Hersey kisses and the lunch bags gave me the inspiration.  And then came the sentiment... I saw it on a Lawn Fawn set and it's been in my mind ever since.  Just such a nice thing to say so I stamped it out with another Lawn Fawn alpha set.  I stamped the leaves and colored them with 4 different watercolor pencils and then blended them with a blender pen.  It is hard to see but one of the leaves on the card and the envelope have glitter on them and the middle one on the card is popped with dimensional foam.  I made three sets (bag, card and envelope) as teacher gifts.
