Thank You Recollections
I wanted to use this previous Cards and Things sketch as I liked the layout. I altered it to a standard sized card instead of a square one and since I am in need of a few thank you notes for teachers, it was my mission for this card.
The paper in the background is a pack of Recollections DP I picked up at Michael's at 50% off - score! I'm loving a lot of the papers in it and though I wasn't sure about this one when I first saw it, I quite like what it adds to this card. Lots of dies and punches finished things off. As luck would have it, it also qualifies for this week's CR84FN challenge :)
One child home from school for the summer and one week left for the other one! I'll be donning my "eau de chlorine" once again in a few weeks time as we delve right into swimming lessons. My fasciitis is just about healed so I get to go swim laps and suck wind for the first few days of the kids' lessons LOL! Will feel great to exercise again, and I can get back to my fit and firm at fifty and beat down the flab factor a bit :)
Wishing you a wonderful day!
