For Another Teacher Leaving

Hello again - the card below was for another teacher who has just left our school - she would have been Eleri's teacher in September so we were sad to see her leave.

I've used a Rosie image from Digistamp Boutique again, coloured with promarkers.  The papers are My Minds Eye A Happy Heart - the first time I've used them - they are gorgeous, such rich colours.  And the flowers are from my stash (I've had them for ages), and they matched perfectly.  I've also had the Lakeland sentiments for ages - I did decide to trim the sentiment down before giving it.  I've also used the Macarena Corner die.  The dark red paper was actually an envelope from a card I received - I can even re-use and recycle on my cards sometimes LOL!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Kaboodle Doodles - Whats In - I think the corner dies are 'in' at the moment
Crafts and Me  - Anything Goes
Waste Not Wednesday - Use neglected stash
Simon Says - Anything Goes

I haven't shown the presents I made for teachers yet - so here they are - I made jewellery of course!

I made little gift boxes, using Crafters Companion CDs (I typed onto the boxes "Diolch yn Fawr Iawn" - which is Welsh for Thank You Very Much, because my children attend the local Welsh language school):

I thought I should show how a bracelet looks when it's on!

That's it from me for now.  I hope to see you again soon.

Love, Andrea xx
