Card and Notebook

Today was a bittersweet day.  An Aide at our school decided to take a new, less stressful, job.  She has been working in my classroom for an hour a day for the past three years and I will miss her dearly!  The school won't be the same without her, but we are happy for her! 

I decided to make her a card and notebook set.  I came across this Sweet Sunday Sketch and wanted to give it a try.  
Here is the coordinating notebook.  

And the set together. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I'll bet she loved your gift. I especially love the flourishes. I need to get those. I know Dawn uses them all the time on her cards and I have always loved them. Very pretty and thoughtful gift.
