Nursery thank you cards

I made Dex's cards for his 'nursery ladies' at the weekend - I'd planned on using an image but Dex wanted himself on them lol!  So I thought I'd use this photo - the daffodils were grown from bulbs that nursery gave to the children... he looks very proud of his flowers doesn't he?


I printed the photo onto hammered card, which I quite like in 'real life' but looks a bit odd in this pic.  The papers are digi ones from Pink Petticoat, printed onto linen card.  Sentiment is computer generated.  I kept them really simple as I made 4 of them.

Keeping this very short, so I can have a mad dash around some of your blogs!  Have a lovely evening :o)
