Thank You!

Whoops, scrapbooking has been put on the back burner at the moment as I just don't feel like creating anything, however, half term was catching up with me and I had to make a teacher present and card.

EJ's teacher happened to mention she was an avid reader, much like myself and I decided what better way of saying thanks for a particularly brilliant teaching year than to make her a bookmark.

Instantly I fell in love with this little duck holding a daisy, so I spent many a morning camped by the window cross stitching and I'm pleased with how he (yes hes a he) has turned out.

I also made a 'Thank You' card which I took inspiration from an old copy of Card Trends.

Supplies: Woodware card base, Kaisercraft bling, Hampton Arts stamps, Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots, Spellbinders labels and various scraps of cardstock.

I'll upload photos in the coming week of my CJ which arrived back home last week.
