Teachers Gifts

Friday is Lily's last day of school, so of course this brings up the problem of what to buy for the teachers as a thankyou. Money was a wee bit tight and Anice brought out a Tea themed download called Tea's Up so I decided to combine the two lol. So thinking of tea.....what comes to mind? Biscuits of course lol So bought a couple of packs of fancy biccies and set about playing, this is what I have come up with :o)

fathers day card

This is the card I have made for my step dad for Fathers Day. The image is a 3d decoupage sheet. Nice and simple and already cut YAY!! Had a scrap of blue card for the corners and nestie cut circle. If I'd had a full sheet I would have layered the paper onto it too. The paper is from the Salt n Pepper download from Funky Hand, its a great download all black and white and grey so it goes with absolutely EVERY colour :o)

Hello all and I have to start with an apology for the lateness of announcing my winner. On Thursday afternoon I was rushed to hospital with some pains in my chest. It was the old gall stones playing up so my gall bladder was removed on Friday. Today has been the first day I have been able to sit at the pc!!!

So without further ado my winner is number 38...RibenaRuby Congrats hun, drop me an email to with your address and I will get your prize in the post :o)

I wasn't very organised last week so I hadn't done my card for this weeks Allsorts challenge so have had to plead a sicknote!!

Hope to be back soon once I can sit at the craft table for any length of time :o)
