One of my daughter's favourite teachers, Mrs Ward, (the library manager) left last week to take up a position in another school and we wanted to send a card to thank her for all she had done for Sophie. She really nurtured Sophie's love of books and reading and also lead the school to victory 2 years running in the County Lit Quiz (Sophie was in the team both of those years!). Sophie is also a librarian and attended the weekly book group and Mrs Ward always looked after them so well with biscuits or cake at book group and lots of chocolate at Easter and Christmas. The card was made using a Hunkydory topper and background card - and I added a rather well-tied (for me!) bow. Simple but heartfelt.

This was my first try at using a Die'sire Create a Card die. It was supposed to be just a practise run but it worked so well I was able to make it into a card! I cut the die on to one half of an A5 piece of Centura Pearl card which, folded in half made an A6 card. The backing paper is from the Sara Davies Butterfly Signature Collection as is the butterfly die which I cut in Centura Pearl and overlaid it with the same die cut from blue vellum. Gems on the butterfly body added a bit of sparkle!
