Hanna Stamps Friday Challenge

There is a great challenge over at the Hanna Stamps forum at SCS and this week Adela is asking us to make anything but a card. I made a little folder using Moni's Tutorial which I haven't made in a long time. They are so quick and easy to make using my handy scor-pal. This little folder is for Danni's Nursery Teacher Mrs Goddard. Inside is a bar of Thortons Chocolate and a gift card. Wow, where did her nursery year go and I can't believe she will be full days in September. Mrs Goddard is the most wonderful teacher and I remember oh so well being in tears at the end of the school year when Zoe left nursery five years ago. I know the same is going to happen again on Tuesday!

I have used School Riley which is stamped with Memento ink and coloured with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The paper is DCWV Grade School. I added some black raffia lace for some added texture.

If you have Hanna's or Riley's be sure to pull them out. Everyone who plays in our Hanna Stamps Friday Challenge during the current month has a chance to win a prize at the Hanna Stamps release party. If you don't own any and would like to play along be sure to check out my great selection here.

See you tomorrow for this weeks Spoon Full challenge.
