Nursery Graduation, a thank you card and a hug!!


Just a quick post from me as we are off to Mallory Park racetrack tonight to help the raceteam that HB's company sponsors in a race tomorrow... that sounds very jet set, but F1 this ain't!!  Fingers crossed they do well though

Today I am sharing a card I made for my youngest son's nursery school teacher who left on Friday.  It was also their graduation ceremony as they all start going to big school in the next couple of weeks.  An emotional day as he has been at the same nursery with more or less the same staff since he was 2 months old

Here's some pics of the card


I was pushed for time, so kept it simple and used the sketch from this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge

I used a Mo Manning Digi (think it is called You're my best...) and teamed him with some MME papers and dotty Bazzill, Whimsey ticket and Woodware sentiment, some twine and a big bold button.  I've cut him out and rolled a ball tool round the edge and adhered him with silicon

Please can I also enter
(I'm hoping that this count as it's a leaving to go to school card)

I went to the ceremony, and he looked too cute in his mortar board

And I snapped some pictures of him with Kate, he made her cry by telling her he'd miss her!!  Having said that she is likely to still see him as she is going to the nursery that is attached to the school he is going to!

Right, gotta dash!!  Thanks for stopping by

Your card is simply adorable, Sue! One can see the love you put into this. Love the pics of your son, he looks so handsome in his mortar board:) Yes, these must be very emotional moments.
I'm sure his nursery school teacher adored it. Mo's little boy image surely looks a bit like your little fellow:)
Have a great Sunday sweetie and thanks for joining us at Mo's this week!
Hugs, Iulia
