Thank You Teachers

Well today should be the last day of school before the 6 week holidays. I say should be as i was a naughty mum and let the Luke and Ben have the last 2 days off to go to Grandma and Grandads caravan in Skegness. As it was a last minute decisison i had to drop all the Thank You teachers gifts in... Ben loved having Mrs Kroll this year, well she has taught both his big brothers too :O)
The card was a Jolly Nation decoupage image. That was great fun putting together.
The post-it note holder at the top was abit of an experiment,I havent been able to find a paper crimper, so attempted to use my wonder board. Which worked.... Kind of ;O) It was basically a piece of card 8.5 x 3.5. Folded in half.Then scored on both side 1cm from center line. The post it notes are stuck to the right hand side.
The teachers survival kit was put inside a pencil case, handy for teacher to store stuff in the class too.
I also made a book mark that matched with teachers name on, papermania jewelled flowers and the same blue ribbon

Furrypigs' Embossed Thank You card

Heres my entry for Furrypigs embossed Thank You challenge over on MSE. I have embossed the pink paper, and the mirror card. The large flower is from Calico crafts and has a jumbo brad attatched to it for the center.I then put it all onto a pink card which was from my bargain WHSmiths stash.
Ive used this card for Bens school office manager who is retiring today after 25 years at the school. Mrs.Delves will be missed by all.

Thanks furrypig for the great challenge.

Christmas card challenge

Well again i just couldnt decide which card to enter , so heres 2 lol . Tilda and Edwin seem to be favorites of mine at the minute. The white glitter paper set off the look i wanted for the snow.

One Colour Card

We had a challenge to do a card in just one colour, any colour could be used but just shades on that one colour. Well i was actually abit challenged by this card as it was a step out of my zone. I had to think about it lol. I chose to do a green card, using secret garden papers, used my cuttlebug to emboss some bright green. I even added a button,which i never normally do. All of this was even on a green card with matching envelope. Yes this truley was a green card.

Rustys' alter challenge

This started out life as a magazine holder and ended up as ..... well a decorated magazine holder lol. I did want to decorate or alter a cd box to house my cuttlebug embossing folders but what with one thing and another it wasnt to be. So i decided that my craft mags needed a crafty home. It was the first time i had ever set an eyelet, how easy it was with my crop-a-dile. I used my squeeeeze for the lettering. The magnolia stamp was very apt for today,as its raining. I used glossy accents to make the raindrops look more water like.

ATC draw

I was so lucky that i won a draw that Padingtondoo did following the June ' Feeling blue' swap. All the names were put into a hat and the winner pulled. Heres my prize, lots of beautiful 'strokeable' ribbons :O) Thanks Padingtondoo.

Here was my ATC that i sent to Saveapenny

and the ATC on the bottom was received off Saveapenny
