I will be even busier now, as I was asked by my Mother to make her wedding invitations!  She is getting remarried after 23 years of being a widow.  She is extremely happy and very much in love, and it so good to see her this way after all these lonely years!!  I am so  happy for her and her fiancé, Len!   It will be a smallish family and friends ceremony and dinner, …

Teacher Thank You

My son gave this card to his Grade 6 teacher.  I hope she liked it! I used my My Memories Software program  to create the note and sentiment and added in my VINTAGE SCHOOL BOOKS image, coloring in only the apple. I printed this top layer, punched two holes in it an inch apart and tied the black ribbon in a bow, then mounted it to a black base card.  I used a piece of white  4″ x 5.25″ cardstock for the inside. Thanks for stopping by!   Have a creative day!! Deena
