End of an Era!

Hello there! Hope you are enjoying my scheduled posts. Make sure you don't miss out on my competition whilst I am away to win a gift from Convention - full details are at the bottom of this post.

Last week my son's Headteacher left the primary school after 9 fantastic years! She has been there from the same time as when Ross started (he left 3 years ago) so has almost seen both my boys through primary school. Evan will have one last year without her! I have to say she has been fantastic so I just had to spend time on a special card even though I was pushed for time before my trip!

I used a set that I could never bear to part with! I usually get rid of all my old sets but this one is a "keeper" for me! The colours of the card are based on the school colours. I didnt want to make a Happy Retirement card but I wanted a Thank You card as I have a lot to thank Mrs Howard for!

I spent ages making the little pupils, drawing the school jumpers on manually and creating different characters! 

The gorgeous ribbon is the new Crushed Curry chevron ribbon which I am loving and it matched the school colours perfectly.

Please let me know what you think about my special card - do you miss this set?

Now onto the competition reminder!
