Thanks for everything

This is a card that I made for my son to give to his Family Support Worker at school.  She is much more than the job title suggests though - she really does make a difference at the school and any problems, no matter how small, she will sort them out.  She has also been assisting with his transition to college in September, taking him and some other pupils on visits and ensuring that everything is in place to support their special needs.

I used another of my Woodware Huge stamps and papers from Kraftwork Cards.

I decorated a Kraft gift bag to go with the card.

I would like to enter my card and gift bag in to the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge 101 - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Challenges - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too Challenge 64 - Sentiment as the Highlight
Divas by Design Challenge - Favorite Stamp (Woodware Huge Stamps are my all time favourites)

Thank you for visiting me today, I have been rather poorly for the past few days so I apologise if I have not visited you for a while, I feel a lot better now so I will be catching up with everyone as soon as I can.




Gorgeous card and gift bag Pauline and sorry to hear you have been poorly glad to hear you feeling better now take care
Hugs Dianne xx :)

Gorgeous card and beautifully decorated bag to go with it. A lovely way to say thank you. We had a similar lady who helped my daughter all through school and college, She was wonderful and I don't know how we would have managed without her.
I hope you are feeling better now.
