Candy for a teacher

Hi sweet people!!

So sorry for being away for so long. You probably have already read it on the Sketch Saturday blog but I have stopped being a Design Team member for Sketch Saturday. The last weeks have been a little to much for me, my health continues to let me down, I have been now forewarded to a doctor who specializes in rheumatism but there is a waitinglist and he won't be able to see me before the beginning of September. I'll be OK of course but with my body being so anoying I'm having a lot less energy then normal and since my family comes first, the crafting has to suffer. I am very sorry to leave the girls at SS though, they are the nicest bunch of ladies and I think I have really gotten to know them over the past months. But we are going to stay in touch and I'll join in on the SS challenges as often as I can. ENOUGH!! I've got a card to show you people.. finally :).

Tomorrow is my oldest daughter Dyanne's last day at school so I've bought both her teachers a little something and made a card to go with it. Here is the first card I've made, the second one I'll show you as soon as the Card Art kits for July are being distributed because I've used the materials of the new Card Art kit for that one, it will be any day now though.

The first card I did with the materials from last months Card Art kit. I thought the sweetness on the paper would go perfectly with the gift I got for the teachers (will show you that in a bit). The gorgeous image is from The Greeting Farm, she is called Hope & Grace Snuggle and she reminds me so much of my little girl. Here is a close up of the image. It looks as though she's got a grey spot on her cheek but that's actually the shade of the bunny, been doing 3D again as always :).

Here is the gift that I bought, it's filled with fudge, chocolate bonbons and more lovely candy:

The text on the jar reads 'De liefste juf ben jij' meaning 'you are the sweetest teacher', both her teachers are getting the same jar though, I just thought it was so cute :). And here is the gift ready to be taken to school tomorrow:

I hope you like it. I'll be back with more cards as soon as the Card Art kit of July is distributed. Soon!!
