Thank you Teacher

Gems of Inspiration
I have this oh so sweet Pink Gem design inspiration card to share today..
This is for my Granddaughter Mia to give to her Nursery teacher..
She will be leaving the nursery to go into Reception class full time school..
It doesnt seem five mins. since I was taking her walks in the pram on our nana days..sigh!
This cute cat image is so apt as Mia, her mummy & daddy have 3 cats who she adores, along
with her Girls..the newly acquired Guinea pigs..  
This sweet "Cat with Glasses"  has lots of cute sentiments but this was a must for this occasion..
Lovely decoupage layers so easy to cut out..the glasses have glossy accents to give them shine..
Some stickles & gems complete this super sweet card..you also get a cute gift card should you need it..
