Goodbye Miss Smith

Sadly again, not so long ago we said goodbye to another wonderful teacher from our school, Ms Smith. Whilst she never taught any of my children, she was always up for a chat (and more often than not a laugh) and really was the most wonderful soul. I could not let her go without something small to say thanks and goodbye.

I drew inspiration from a card on Andrea Buckland's blog here (the 2nd card) and came up with this.....

Sadly the dodgy photographics do not do the background justice, but believe me when I say I really learnt a LOT about sponging doing this project....LOL!!! I also sponged the sentiment here....

I teamed it up with one of my co-ordinated butterfly bookmarks......

Hopefully the colours sponged on the background are better shown here.....

And of course the set together.....

Next time I decide to do sooooooooooooo much sponging I need to allow myself a little more time to do it I think....hee hee hee, however, I was very pleased with the result.

Thanks for dropping by.
