My Photo
I am a retired nurse and at home mom to my 2 beautiful kids Chelsea and Jake. Although my daughter is now going into third year University away from home...she's still with us in the summers. My son will be going into second year at our local University this fall. I find that I have lots of time to scrap and make cards. Lovin' it!

Music teacher- Thank You card

I made this card for my daughter's flute teacher. I realized...when she goes away to university in September...she won't be here taking flute lessons? I know that should be obvious, but I actually kinda forgot. Anyways...I thought I'll have to make her a special card this year and get her a nice gift. This is the card I came up with. I love how it turned out.My daughter's fav colour is purple...so that's the way I went with it. I love the cricut cart I used to make it too. It has a great font and some really pretty designs.

Recipe:
  • DCMV-Latte Cardstock
  • Bazzil-Eggplant coloured cardstock
  • EK Success border punches-in and out
