Christmas Thank You


Yesterday we enjoyed the Christmas afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes and and entertainment from the pupils at grandson's junior school.
The youngsters are always such attentive hosts and it is lovely to have them fuss over us fogeys, LOL.
We were treated to a few carols and the young musicians did their bit - some of them have only been learning to play their instruments for a few months - but they all did so well, bless em!

This is the Thank You card to the Headteacher, staff and pupils for such a splendid afternoon.

I have used my new die, Spellbinders garden weave. I ordered it Sunday and it arrived Tuesday morning, just in time to make this card last night.

The BP and flowers are from my craft mag.

I've layered three different sizes of the flowers and added some punched leaves on to a piece of well distressed music paper.
Then just the tag and I thought that was enough.
