school's out for summer!

This is a great card for a teacher at the end of term.
Love this card, so easy and effective. Bought these chocolate ladybirds a couple of weeks ago but didn't know how I was going to use them. Paper used is making memories - but you could just as easily use a4 lined paper. Distressed with tonic distressing tool. Text is large doodlebug rub-ons 'all mixed up' and sun created with kwik cutz sunshine die. Fred the spider and fingerprint my own - l.o.l.

Backing paper is from Piggy Tails, pink card is Bazzil, swirls are a sizzix die, image is one of the new slapsticks from Penny Black (obviously). Text created on the cricut with Plantin Schoolbook font.
