A couple of thank you cards

I thought I'd make some thank you cards for my TAs for coming back to the evening performance of our play last Thursday. The whole play thing was very stressful but turned out great. The children all performed very well, but I am now very glad it's all finished with for another year!

This first one is for SC378 for the sketch, Friday Mashup's Challenge #52 to use kites and/or colourful twine and for Cupcake Crafts Challenge #185 to be inspired by music or to include some music on your card. As soon as I read the write up for Friday Mashup's challenge, I couldn't stop singing "Let's go fly a kite" from Mary Poppins (love that film!) so there's my music inspiration!

And my other thank you card is for Card Patterns Sketch #159 and CR84FN51 to use these pretty colours.


And here's my card. Just had to pull my medallion backgrounds out again for this one!

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
