Hello Friday...........

I hope you are ready for another weekend, here it is wet again but hope it may get better.
I am rushing off on a health and safety course shortly, keep me busy till 12pm.

Here is a card I made for my Grandsons girl friend. It has been in draft since June.
She had just attained her first teaching post to start in September of this year.

and the inside, every teacher needs an apple lol.............

Kraft card base, cream matting, PM text stack papers, Image partly  made on Greetings Factory, PC generated sentiment, stickles, gems, brad from stash.

I love that little quote from Shakespeare,.............we all remember a teacher who inspired us I'm sure.... sometimes a lesson from school carries us through the rest of our lives.
I learned many lessons that I still remember, one especially about sitting with a straight back when writing and holding a pen correctly........... I really do not know how some people manage to write these days the way they hold their pens.
Also, Try your best, be your best and look your best... whatever the circumstances (many poor people in my class in junior school, meaning soap and water and a comb could transform you) I also think that the two rulers across my knuckles on a regular basis may have help as well lol

I am entering the following challenges;

Sister Act Challenge -------------anything goes

Sweet 7 challenge blog ---------------back to school

DL Art ---------------------139 back to school

Milkcoffee challenge ------------------back to school

The paper shelter -------------- back to school

Thank you for your visit
