Apples for the Teachers - Worm Slider

     The grandchildren start back to school on Monday. My daughter-in-law asked me to pick up the construction paper for their school supplies. I will probably take them up to their respective schools later this week. There is no way I am going to brave the first day of school for construction paper. Anyway . . .
     I decided to put together a goodie bag for each of the teachers. The kids are in Pre-K and Kindergarten. I found the cutest stamp; bought two of them. They have a teddy bear with arms fully extended and say "Give Your Child A Hug For This Good Work!" I also picked up a book for each teacher. For the Pre-K teacher Let's Play Peekaboo! It is one of those lift-the-flap books. For the kindergarten teacher I Take Turns. Of course, I have to put a couple of homemade cards in the bag . . .
     I couldn't resist using today's End of Summer Crop sketch:
Card and Envelope

Sketch #81

      If that doesn't look like a slider card, I don't know what does. I saw apples instead of circles and a worm for the owl.
