Continuing the School Theme

Morning all.

It seems like a good idea to share all of the school cards so that next year (unlike this) I will not be sharing cards that were made a whole year (and more) ago. 

So this is one from this year. My friend Sandra's daughter started high school this year and this kinda looks a wee bit (if you squint slightly) like Emma. Well, she wears glasses and has blonde hair! I've kept it simple but I've paper pieced her book.

The Birthday of a Genius


We had our annual Sweet Stampin' meet at Edinburgh Zoo on Saturday and while we were there we celebrated the birthdays (which were actually yesterday) of Abi and Cass.  Now Abi is known as our resident genius and some time ago I bought this fab Tiddly Inks image which I had never used so Abi's birthday was the perfect opportunity to break it out!!

Another First. Day That Is.


This is the second of my first day at school cards - this is the girly version. I could have used the Rosie starts school image I have but I discovered this image on Digi Stamp Boutique on special offer and as the little girl I was making a card for was called Maisie and this image is called Maisie starts school it seemed appropriate.
