Skool's Out for Summer !!!

Yippeeee ! School has finished ! Should I be so excited after all, it's not me who goes to school !!!

I just thought I would show you a couple of makes Ski and I made last weekend for a couple of the teachers at her school. Can you tell which one of us made which card ?

I managed to contain myself when Ski said "oh Mummy, this paper is perfect !". With fingers in my mouth up to my knuckles I let her cut it up and use it for her card !!! I thought I was a very good Mummy giving up my October Afternoon papers to a 7 year old !!

The images are Teacher Anya from The Greetings Farm and both have been coloured with ProMarkers.

The ribbons, flower, brad and button are from my stash.

Off for that well deserved cuppa and sit down !

Hope you all have a great weekend and please Mr Sunshine, show yourself to us !

Thank you for visiting and for any lovely comments you may leave. I know Ski will be chuffed to bits to know that you have been viewing her card !


  1. good morning Jo,

    I had to chuckle at your post. Yes, you are a very good mommy! :o) Both cards are very fun and cute.

    have a great weekend, janny

  2. Both are beautiful, you have a very talented 7 year old :o)

  3. Both cards are FAB! two talented people. Have a lovely weekend too.

  4. Your post did make me laugh and yes you are a very good mummy letting Ski cut up your lovely papers.
    Both cards are great and Ski is one talented 7 year old.I used to love it when the girls were on school holidays...... happy days
    Have a lovely weekend

  5. Thank goodness I don't have any kids, I think you are a wonderful mum letting you little one cut into your October Afternoon. Have to say both cards are gorgeous.

  6. These are both absolutely gorgeous cards. It's hard to tell them apart. Isn't it great when your daughter loves crafting too, there's always someone who will join in. You were a very good Mummy letting her have that paper, I think I would have persuaded mine with something else, probably with glitter in, that tends to work!!! You put me to shame!!
    Hope you both have a great weekend.
