Off White LOTV

So this is the card I was making and the reason I had the craftsheet out. The papers are Cosmo Cricket and the colours are more cream than white so using a distress pad and the blending tool I went round the white card that the cute LOTV image was on, to tone down the white.
It has been suggested that my craftsheet is new, I've had for years but it gets so little use it looks brand new. Its now rolled up and back in its original box.
I think by December everyone will be fed up with MS snowflake punches but I can't help it they're a perfect size.
I've used the sketch from last weeks Sketch Saturday and a bit of glitter to finish.
13 years ago my BIL accepted a cleaning contract to clean a school but he couldn't get anyone to accept the job so my Sis offered to do it temporary, today she retires.
She not only cleaned the school but became a part of the school family to the point she often told the teachers off for not getting home to their families or if they're left the classroom's messy. She often helped with any sewing or activities one of which is setting up a card club but the last couple of years she has found the job getting harder and one of things she has been disappointed in that she hasn't been able to do the card club.
But now she officially leaves and is looking forward to setting up the card club again and being able to help with other activities.
She also looking forward to do doing craft classes in the evenings and going out without worrying about getting back for school and she has plans that somehow involve me!
Happy Retirement Sis
