Another Mexican Thank You

This card uses a digi image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps
He is coloured using my promarkers
Then mounted onto plain blue card and then onto white
The dotty card was some scraps left over from the candle boxes I made ages ago
The checked paper was from a kit from Create and Craft
The sentiment is from Docrafts and finally finished with some square gems

This card is for another of my sons teachers who gave up there time to help with raising money to go to mexico and with the trip itself. The kids kept taking the mick that he was losing his hair, so this image was perfect.

Heres another photo of DS on the trip with the whole team from his School in front of the house they built for the Mexican family

This card is for the following challenges:

Mexico - Thank You's

This card is the first thank you card for the teachers that organised the Come Build Hope to Mexico
My DS came home last Tuesday and the first thing he said was that he wanted to raise some money to be able to go back again and help another family.

This card is uses an image from Charmed Crafts that I have added the hat from Clip Art
He is coloured using my promarkers
The papers are all from my stash
The tag is the sentiment and say Thank You, its from DoCrafts
The key I have had for ages and cannot remember where it came from

Once the house was build for the family all the people involved where given a necklace with a key on it and the Amor Ministries - Build Hope Logo on it. 

Below is a picture of the team with the family who now have a secure place to live 
In the foundations of the house is a time capsule that each of the team put their hope and prayers for the family and also what they hoped to gain from the experience - the family know there is this capsule of hope and love in the foundations of their house. Its not just the family whose live has change my DS has grown in so many ways in his leadership, understanding and spiritually. 

This card is for the following challenges

Proud Mum Moment

'Proud mum moment'
My daughter is studying to be an accountant and has a
 few interviews for various accounting roles with no luck.
This all changes last week when she was offered a job in a finance department 
of a local company as an assistant accountant
We went out shopping for suits etc on Saturday and today she started and loved it
This is the card I made her
It uses a digi image from Kenny K's
She is coloured using my promarkers
I then used cream and kraft card with a layer of shiny pink mirror card in between
The sentiment was done in word and printed onto smooth card
To finish the card  I added some bling in the top corner

This card is for the following challenges:

With my son in Mexico helping build a house for family in need and my daughter just started her first full time job I do feel really blessed and thankful to have such wonderful children
