Treat Yourself Note Card

How’s everyone doing?

I’ve been a little under the weather, with a smattering of “other things to do” going on.

Today’s note card was really quick and easy. Wouldn’t it be cute to hold a gift card from the local ice cream shop as an end of year gift for a student or favorite teacher?

I made the ice cream chocolate – because that is my favorite.  😉
