Crocodiles and giraffes, oh my!

Hi everyone. Hope you are well. Yesterday I finally finished the teacher thank you cards so I'm sharing those today. I need to explain that all the classes in my sons' school are named after animals- my youngest is in Crocodiles key group but his main teacher is key worker for the Giraffes, so hopefully these cards now make sense!

My first card is for the Crocodiles' keyworker. She was also the keyworker for my eldest son in his first year at school, so we have got to know her really well and will be sad to say goodbye.

The crocodile was made using a Tonic Buildable fie. Boy was that hard work to construct! I used a mix of Tonic and Hunkydory card. The background paper is from Hunkydory's Animal-tastic paper pad and the sentiment stamp is by Dovecraft.

My second card is for my son's main teacher- she was also my eldest son's teacher in Reception and has been so fabulous with them both.

For this one I adapted a Hunkydory Box Pop do that it was flat on the card. The paper is again from the Animal-tastic pad and the sentiment stamps from Craftwork Cards.

Thank you for visiting today, I really do appreciate all of your comments. Cathy x
