Bat out of hell

Well that was my son as he ran from the classroom on his last day in reception class yesterday. I have decided that he is not allowed to be any older than five and will definitely not be allowed to return to school in September as a year 1 pupil. You wouldn't guess that I can't believe he is growing up too fast (filling up a little, sniff, sniff) and don't want him to, quite yet hee hee.

This the last of the teacher's thank you cards - this one goes with the red picnic basket from here. Looking at this card now, it looks a little 'Christmassy'? Oh well, it's done and given now LOL. Please join me tomorrow as I will be announcing some BLOG CANDY :D I have reached 10,000 hits. I can't believe it, not only that I have had some many lovely people pop by but that I have done daily posting for the last 110 days!

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies for this card from Stampin' Up! - which you can order from me are:
Stamps: Pocket silhouettes and canvas background
Ink: Black stazon and creamy caramel
Card stock: Kraft, very vanilla, old olive and real red
Paper: dashing designer series paper
Other: Twill, real red brad and linen thread.

Non SU- PTI button and paper

Emma, This card is fantastic - I love the colours so much. It's hard to believe that our little ones are growing so quick - Harry is grong to be 3 in 2 weeks time. I dont know where the 3 years has gone. I think it's time for a new addition to my little family - Ha Ha!!!
Take Care - Julie xx

WOOOOO! 10,000 HITS!! That's amazing though hardly surprising with you somehow posting amazing creations on a daily basis! Are you sure you're not Wonderwoman?! LOL!
Love the colours in the card and the stamped sentiment on the twill - just gorgeous!

Gorgeous card Emma. I know what you mean about these little ones growing up so fast, my baby is nearly 18...hardly seems 5minutes since he had his first day at school. I move upto year 6 next year, I have been supporting the same child since he started in Reception and have been very lucky to get to know 90 fantastic children and watch as they progress through the school. I will be worse than their parents when they do their final assembly this time next year!!
