As lots of you are bracing yourselves for the long school holidays ahead, we have a very appropriate challenge for you over at CRAFT this week:
THANK YOU TEACHER!!
I consulted my son on his teachers possible likes and dislikes and the best he could come up with after giving it a moments thought was "Something pink and girlie". After that incredible brief here's my card:
I'm still trying to be good and use some of my older neglected stamps and paper scraps. I think most people like the Forever Friends bears so I figured this was a safe bet. The brown stripey paper is a scrap of Doodlebug bon bon stripes and the pink dotted one is from the Dovecraft Piece of Cake collection. I've used quite soft pastel promarkers to colour the image and a Marianne die for the background frame. The dust was also blown off the MS Doiley lace punch for the border!!
I wasn't very keen on the plain kraft inside so I decorated that too and then just as I was finishing this, Lynne at Sentiments 4 you posted the perfect freebie sentiment to finish it off. Thanks Lynne!!
