Retiring


Had a card to make for a retiring Classroom Assistant who works in a school nursery. Decided to pull out my little Crafters Companion mice. I have so many packs of these they have just been neglected. I used the background from the Summer Stories cd and attempted to turn it into the outside of the school. This is for 4 challenges;
1.Its a Crafters Companion - yellow and orange
2. Truly Scrumptious - followed their sketch
3. Quixotic Challenge -use an old stamp (got these early last year)
4. Paperplay challenge - use your own handwriting (wrote the school name)
Images - crafters companion
Medium - distress inks, stickles, promarkers
Papers - digi papers
Tools - embossing folder, sewing machine, fancy cut scissors

You had me worried for a minute there when I saw the post title. How can we go on without Pinky I'm thinking. Love this card and I think I need to revisit my little CC mice too.

Another adorable card and you did a great job with the "scene" you created. Plus I'd say you are super talented to have 1 card fulfill 4 challenges! Great job. Best, Curt
