Not A Christmas Card (As Promised)

I have decided I am not going to do any crafting today as it is the kids last day at home - they go back to school tomorrow. Yes, it's back to getting up at 6.15am again tomorrow. Oh joy. Can't begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to that!

As I promised, no Christmas cards today, instead here is a card I made for one of the school Mums/Bunco ladies who left England just before Christmas to go and live in South Africa. Well they were going home to Sweden for Christmas then they go on to South Africa from there some time around now, I think.

This was for Helena from all the Bunco ladies.
Inside I made two fold down pockets and gave each of the Bunco ladies an individual tag to write their own personal message on. On this photo they aren't quite finished. I added ribbons to each tag in alternate yellow and brown and I also added some flowers to the corners of the fold overs. Unfortunately there were one or two people who were late getting their tags in so I didn't get chance to take a final photo of it completed so you'll just have to use your imaginations a bit.
This is a close up of the layered butterfly and felt flower on the front.

Papers, Tag (on front) and Embellishments: K&Co

Tags (inside): Cricut ~ Tags, Bags and Boxes Cartridge.

What a wonderful card for you to make! She is going to love all of those individual messages! That is so sweet!

It's way too quiet at my house today! The break went by too quickly, and I still wish the girls were at home!!

Brilliant card and idea... would be great for anyone who has to send a card that will be signed by many such as someone leaving at work or leaving to have a baby. I'll crib this idea for the next one I have to make which will be for work as one of our GP's leaves in April.
