Teacher Thanks and Babies Galore

Finally I am getting some time to catch up with my blog.  The first two cards in this post are the cards I made for my children's teacher's in the school they were leaving behind, Lionel School on the Isle of Lewis.  With the house move and everything that's happened this summer school holidays have passed in a flash............... thankfully lol.

The first one was for my daughters teacher - image is LOTV - Back to School Girl, coloured with promarkers and chalk.

The second card was for my son's teacher, again the image is LOTV - Back to School Boy, coloured with promarkers and chalks.  All other bits are from my stash.  I coloured both images in the school colours and tried to match the hair colour to that of my son and daughter.

The above card was also for my daughters teacher as she is expecting her first baby in the Autumn.  It's the first time I've inked up this lovely Whiff of Joy stamp - Pregnant Willow, once again coloured with Promarkers and chalks.  The sentiment is from LOTV and the DP was a freebie from a magazine.

The final card for this post is another baby themed card - this time for a friend who had a lovely little boy - Samuel.  I love this little Sugar Nellie Stamp - Vintage Baby.  I think it lends itself more towards baby boys though. 

I've once again coloured the image in with my trusty Promarkers (what did I do before Promarkers!!!)  The white matt has been run through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Baby Embossing folder.  The Baby Boy tag is from a very old Hot of the Press paper stack and the blue dotty paper is from a Docrafts Goodie Bag.

Thats all for now, Nicola xx
