Something Else on Saturday #18 Featuring Newton's Nook Aloha

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. As a teacher, I like to give cards to my team teachers and teaching assistants and thought I would share some of them here with you for this week's post. It's a long one though!

I used the fun Aloha stamp set from Newton's Nook for both of these cards - this is such a fun tropical themed stamp set that I bought not too long ago!

This first card was for Andy, my team leader, so a fairly simple card for a man! I think this sentiment is fabulous for end of year teacher cards as Mondays are always hard! (Like with anyone I guess who has the weekend off work!)
