Made by my daughter Nicole

A farewell card my 10 year old daughter made for her teacher who after 13 years at the school has left to go to another school, Nicole was quite sad so we made a card together , she did most of it I just did the cutting for her . Nicole really liked a card Michelle enclosed in the stamp set Summer by the Sea which I purchased from her off her retired list, so she did her own version of it, Well done Nicole.
