Dazzling Diva Challenge #44

Dazzling Diva Challege #44.  Last week was an AMAZING week. Not only did we have a great blog hop with Stampendous, but we also had lots of entries in our Dazzling Diva Challenge.  We loved all of the creations and were inspired by all the great crafters out there.  We have another inspiring challenge this week and can’t wait to see what you come up with this week. So, to get started lets get inspired by the Dazzling Diva Design Team’s creations and then get busy crafting so we can see yours.

challenge 44 cardWho Has Made A Difference In Your Life?

Today’s picture was the perfect one to pull out a tree embossing folder I purchased last year.  Not only was it fitting for Dazzling Diva Challenge #44 but for a special person I need a card to let them know how much they are appreciated. Do you have somebody in your life right now that goes that extra mile to do something for you?

If you have children, you can relate to how trying the school years can be some days. This year has started off as a challenging one for my son. From the first day, Ms. Salazar made my husband and I feel welcome in the classroom and has welcomed our feedback in regards to our son’s education. Honestly, she is going the extra mile to help us.  Not only has she been amazing with us but she has helped my son feel more confident as a student and has helped build him in ways far beyond what she could ever imagine.

One night, I was really frustrated during homework time and I saw that she was on Facebook.  I decided to friend her and pray she would answer. Within minutes she accepted me as a friend and proceeded to personally call me at home a few minutes later.  I could not believe it when I answered the phone and it was her on the other end.

As the year has progressed, we have continued to make weekly visits to the school and on my last visit the teacher did something I never expected. She handed me her business card with her home phone number.  She told me if I needed her to just call her anytime.  I couldn’t believe that she would do this as I know she doesn’t have to answer my call after hours. To know that she cares this much is beyond words.

To say that I appreciate her is not enough. Today, I created this card for her and will be sending it with my son to let her know how much we appreciate everything she is doing to help us help our son.  She is a wonderful blessing in our life and we are thankful for her.  I pray that God will bless her for being a blessing in my son’s life.

  5. Love Vicki’s card the best!!!

  7. Isn’t it nice to have a teacher who goes above and beyond? She sounds like a jewel and your son will probably always remember her.
    My kindergarten and second grade teachers were the ones that I always think of fondly and as an adult was befriended by both of them. We had many happy hours visiting as adults. I will always remember the first time they told me I could call them by their first names. I was 20 when Mrs. Fitzpatrick told me I could call her Louise. I told her I just couldn’t. It took me another 3 years to be able to.
    Looking forward to getting some of your products and taking part in the challenges!!
    Thanks for sharing and I look forward to tomorrow’s announcement!
