School holidays fast approaching...
Well the weather has been stunning hasn't it? must admit a teeniest a bit too hot for me but coping with lots of ice cream!.. Well the school holidays are fast approaching and with that i have made the teacher thank you cards. My youngest finishes primary school this year and will start secondary in September and his year 6 teacher retires after many years at the school. so i have gone for CAS style cards using memory box butterfly to make an aperture in hammered card stock. backing papers chosen from DCWV and mounted on corresponding card colour. then mounted on A6 card. stamped sentiment from Hunkydory.
