A Get-Well Card for our Lovely Bus Supervisor

My eldest son catches a shuttle bus to & from school each day, as it’s too far for me to take him to school & also the Dept of Education pays for the priviledge of being driven to school.

Earlier this month, our lovely Supervisor – Tammy – had a small operation & had to have some time off work.

Our Bus Driver – Trevor – wanted to organize a card for her, so all the kids could sign it & give her a BIG lift to get better sooner. I suggested I would make one large enough for all the kids to sign.

Below is what I came up with:

I used a few “retired” products – because I still LOVE them.

Cardstock: Orchid Opulence (retired) & Whisper White

Stamp Set: Cottage Garden & Sincere Salutations

Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Pale Plum (retired)

Other: Scallop Trim Border, Versamark, Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Ribbon (retired), Old Olive Button – Playground (retired), Butterfly Punch, Cottage Wall DSP (retired), Hemp Twine, Jewels Basic Rhinestones & Large Oval Punch

The Supervisor LOVED her card so much, she cried! She is now back on the bus with the kids – it’s lovely to see her bright & happy smiley face every morning & afternoon.

Thanks for popping in! Hey I blogged for the first time in 6 weeks! Woohoo!

So, So Slack! But I’m Back!

Hi Everybody

Don’t worry I’m still around, just haven’t been inspired to blog anything recently.

Not only have I been sick – recovering from bronchitis – now have the ever-lovely hayfever to tend with. School Holidays finished last week – but I’m finding that it’s hard to function lately. Maybe it’s a combination of getting back into the school routine & adjusting to daylight savings – which also started last Saturday. Aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!

I have a bit to organize for upcoming functions – but in the meantime, please enjoy checking out these projects, I made recently, for a Hostess.

I’ve had a mental block – but I think it’s the the new In Colours, but please excuse me, if they are incorrect.
