Announcement!!!!

I am so excited to announce that I have been asked to join the team at Make It Monday!  I am beyond thrilled!

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store!  She is offering a ten pound vouches to spend in the store!!!


Here is my card.  It's for Grace's teacher to thank her for making her first week of kindergarten wonderful!




My favorite entry from last week's challenge is Krafty Karen's adorable step card:


Make it Monday is such a special challenge.  To quote: "The whole idea behind Make It Monday is to promote the sharing of inspiration and encouragement amongst the entrants..."  As such, to be in with a chance to win this week's prize all you need to do is leave a comment for one or more of the entries this week and let them know you saw their creation on Make it Monday!  The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!

How cool is that?!?  So come play along!  :D

Big congrats Rene! You're going to be a very busy gal. Your card is so cool incorporating Tilda with the teacher sentiment. I'm glad Grace is off to such a good start! I bet Izzy will miss her like crazy...

Congratulations, Rene. Have tons of fun. Your card is adorable - such sweet detail. Perfect scene - it's so girly cute - and the sentiment probably brought tears to teach's eyes! At least it should have.

Way to go Rene!! Congrats girl! I'm glad Grace had a great week!! Isaiah starts on Wednesday and I'm a little nervous. He didn't have a great start with Pre-K and hated school by the end of it. I've been trying to build up the excitement all summer and also trying to explain he'll have a brand new teacher. I guess we'll see on Wed if the excitement returns. Hugs, Rosie
