Thank you cards

August 9, 2011

Last night I made some thank you cards for Violet’s creche teachers. No – in case you were wondering – I am not one of those super mums who can work while her children happily knead bread and net butterflies in the garden. Violet goes to creche three days a week, and she has just graduated from the under-two section to the preschool section.

I called upon crafters’ favourite collage material, origami paper, and with some scissors, glue and a few strokes of India ink, I had a batch of cards.

    I think you have set a very high bench mark for origami cards. They are lovely. Uch dexterity.

    Hi Sarah, I absolutely adore your blogs – they are the first ones I go to on my blog reader. My husband Sean works with your dad, and we think your parents are both pretty cool 🙂 I read Dead People’s Music last year and thoroughly enjoyed it – have recommended it to the girls in my book club. Anyways, I’d best stop gushing, keep up the good work! (love these cards BTW).

      Thanks so much, Cherie! And great to hear that you’re hustling my book at your book club!

    Ooh, I’ve been so hectic I was a bit behind with your apple blog and so am catching up with all the goodness today. These cards are beautiful, Sarah! I hope the teachers appreciated them!
