Well the end of the academic year here in the UK is rushing to meet me like a runaway freight train (!), and I realised yesterday that I needed two very quick "Thank You" cards for my girls' respective Keyboard Teachers. One daughter has decided (reluctantly) that she's not going to continue with keyboard lessons in September and the other one's teacher is moving onto pastures new. So it was the usual, Mum we need cards in a hurry!
Fortunately, I knew exactly what I was going to make for them! And here are my finished cards (sorry that I forgot to photgraph them together, but they are mini-cards ... honest!):
My card recipes are as follows:
- Backing Paper - is Brown and Red Dots Paper from a kit by Summer at Summertime Designs called Apples and Almonds. Even these were printed out onto scraps of paper that were left over from making envelopes!
- Image - this beautiful monogram is called, appropriately enough, M is for Music and was a goodie given away last year by the exceedingly generous Paulette at Create With TLC. I knew when Paulette offered these on her blog that they would prove very useful for cards for music teachers!
So there you have it, 2 very simple but effective cards each conveying a written message inside from each daughter to her music teacher, and my thanks to them as well for sharing their love of music with my girls.
With a little help from the girls at Feline Playful I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
