Pollyanna Pickering Kestrel Thank You card

Good Morning My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Bank Holiday to those of you that get one today. I hope you have something nice planned. We are off to see our daughter it is her birthday on Tuesday but that is the day we travel to Liverpool. Now I am going to have a complete break no blogging, no wedding prep hopefully lots of fun. I have scheduled a post for Thursday for one of my Design Team commitments but that is it. I will do a proper catch up when we get back.

You probably all know by now that I have resigned from my school job. Now there is a team of four of us working in Year 3 and three of us are leaving. I think that says something. Anyway I want to make cards for the rest of my team to say thank you. This is the first one I made for the male teacher in the team.

The background does have texture and I now wish I had inked it. 

This die was a free with a magazine it is actually flora but I have used it more with the flowers removed. 

This image came from a pad of sketches by Pollyanna Pickering available from the Creative World of Cratfts. 

I cut the words from the image so they could be read more easily. 

That is the first thank you card I need to make two others. I have just applied for another job it is so long since I have done that. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
