A card for Make it Monday #116 …

james card

Today I thought I'd share with you the card I made for my nephew for his birthday last week. He qualified as a teacher this summer hence the theme for his card. I made the blackboard from coffee stirrers  (I never leave a coffee shop without a few of them tut tut) and a rectangle of black card made to look ‘chalky’ with SU Whisper White ink.

I’d like to enter this card for Make it Monday which I just discovered via Sarah’s blog Sarah’s Little Snippets.

I love this card by MiM DT member Lisa.

Very clever "blackboard"! Also, I love to feed the hamster! Ours died a month or so ago but yours is much easier to care for anyways. :)

This is super Sue!! I LOVE your blackboard, what a great idea! and like you I always take the stirrers *blush* but they sit in a wee pile....they are handy for spreading glue too :) The clock button is fab! Sarah xx
