A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.

I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.

another "back to school" card

This card was for our eldest grandson Connor, who is eleven, and has just started his new school at Waingels College. He looks so grown up in his new uniform, especially as he's almost as tall as me now! He loves the new school, and all the classes and activities, and it seems to suit him much better than Primary School, as he's got loads of housepoints already. Even the homework's getting done without too much moaning, and it gives him time to go on his beloved Wii games!

The image is from LOTV and is coloured with copic markers, and the cardstock is coredinations.  The graphic images are downloaded, and the stars are punched out.  This counts as a quick and easy card for me as it only took about an hour, instead of the three hours I usually take, faffing and fiddling!

Thank you very much for coming to visit - I really appreciate the coments you leave, and I promise I'll pop around to your blog too.
xx Jill

Hiya, sorry I am a bit late on the blog hop. I adore this card. Lovely design and colouring. I cannot colour in so neatly and always admire when a crafter and produce work like this.
