quick cards for back to school night

So Monday night is our mid year back to school night. At my kid's school the parents go and meet with the teachers and there is a little lesson from our principal. After that some fellowship with each other (which always includes yummy food!!) It is a tradition for the kids to leave a little something for the parents and then the parents leave them a treat as well. Since I started card making I've been making my cards for them. I always leave some m&ms as well!

Now the important part to the kids is that they get something from us but I didn't want to waste a lot of time or money on something they will probably throw away. (What can I say I have 3 boys! ) So I decided to use scraps and I am not going to put it in an envelope either.

Both these cards were made from a Paper Pizazz paper piecing book I bought years ago. All I did was cut the images and mount them on some plain cardstock. The green dotted paper was a scrap I had leftover.

I added the stamped sentiments 'think' and 'strive' ~ I think they are 'school themed'.

Hope you enjoy these simple cards. I'm loving that I am using up some very old supplies!
