teach our children

oh another girly card.....find male cards so difficult to make..finding stamps is so difficult.....plenty of girly stamps but so few male stamps for teenager/men... anyway onto todays easel card/post it note holder.

used the fab sketch over on :~








all links on my left sidebar

use english paper company and crafty individuals papers, molly blooms stamps, coloured with promarkers, nestabilities oval and label dies, quickutz flower die, sizzix corner die, stampin` up scalloped edged punch, paper makeup word stamp,~glittered ribbon and gems from my stash ~finished with stickles glitter glue.

love this wording ~ perfect for a card for one of lewis`s TA`s at school (need to find out how many TA`s there are in lewis`s year group~nice to thank them all, isn`t it??~i`m sure the TA`s help all children)~ under this wording is a pack of post it notes!!

first time for me to use these molly blooms stamps ~they are so wonderful to colour ~got mine from lynn at the CRAFTBOX ~ lynn was so helpful, even phoned me with info on a sold out stamp.... good to pass on good customer service to other crafters!!!

anyway hope you all have a wonderful weekend... sunday is Aarons 14th birthday ~having family around for tea and birthday cake.......(although Aaron didn`t want birthday cake~getting too old for that!!!) HA HA ~never to old for cake me thinks.........

What great images & a fab sentiment. Your son's TA will really appreciate it (I was a TA for 4 years, and yes, I did work with all the children, not just the ones I was assigned to). Hope your son had a great birthday. Thanks for your comment on my card, & for becoming a follower. Small world eh - I'm from Verwood, near the Hants/Dorset border
