Wow! It's December Already!

I'm popping in quickly to share some cards I made and also so that you know I am still alive and kicking and have not given up on blogging at all, it's just that right now there seems to not be much time available.

I made card sets for 6 of Natasha's teachers for the end of school year as gift sets.  Each set had 6 cards in it.  All 6 sets were different, but I did try to stick to simple designs to make my life a little easier.  The one I am sharing today is probably one of my favourites.  The design is not mine, I did CASE it from Jen Mitchell. you can find her beautiful card right HERE.


Here is one of the cards close up:

I made an open gift box for the set and a matching tag to go with it.

My Mom and Father In Law are still here with us.  They leave to go back to the USA on Saturday.  We've managed to get out a few times in between all the rain we have had and I think that they have had a good time.

Ok, gotta go and do a few things around the house.  I hope to be back with some short posts over the next 3 weeks!  Sending you all lots of hugs!
