Thank you card...

My Uncle Kevin is a bee keeper and gives us big jars of the most delicious honey straight from his bees. To say "thank you" for the honey we usually buy him some scratchies. Tonight I made this card to go with the scratchies. I followed the sketch from 2 Sketches For You. I am also entering this card in Stamp Something Challenges ~ Something Cute. I used my cricut cartridge "New Arrival" to cut out the words and the flower. I focused on yellows and browns (the colours of bees). I used some gingham ribbon and threaded it through some lace. I coloured with an ink pad and an aqua painter.

Carol (one of my dear blogging buddies) asked me how my new school is going...well, the answer is very challenging! Lots of things about the school are very different to what I am used to and it is taking me a little while to adjust. Of course I miss all my old colleagues and students...and I am getting used to the set-up of a small school. Positives are: small class numbers (I had ten on Friday), air conditioning, friendly teachers. Negatives are: a high concentration of learning difficulties and behaviour problems. I guess being "new" is always challenging...I am doing my best, and I hope it gets easier!

I did promise to show you a bit more of our new place and here is a photo I took one morning when I got up of a deer staring right at me through the window. He was such a handsome buck I had to take a photo. It was like he had a message for me. After I took the photo he walked back down the paddock.
I hope you had a lovely weekend. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I love reading your is so nice to have friendly blogging buddies.
