School's Out (well, almost!)

I can't believe that once again the end of the school year is almost upon us - it doesn't seem 5 minutes since we were buying new pencil cases and school bags and I was sewing what seemed like a gazillion name tapes into newly purchased uniform (can't wait to do that all over again ...!).

For some reason, I always seem to end up making the class 'Thank You' card (can't think why ;-)), this year being no exception, so thought I would share the finished result.

I used the 'Color Me Janette' digi stamp from Kenny K (link to site  here ) which I coloured using Promarkers and then added the teacher details on the marker pen to personalise it.  The backing paper is some that I have had in my stash forever ... think it was from DCWV ... and a bit of organza ribbon for a finishing touch.

It appears that it is now customary to contribute to a joint class collection for the teacher's thank you present, which is fine by me, however, things have certainly moved on since Eldest was at school.  Then teacher's gifts were maybe a pot plant, a bunch of flowers or if they were really lucky, a bottle of wine.  Apparently now we are buying a Kindle ...!
Thanks for looking! x
