Finally back for four in one

Hi there,
this time of the year is, I believe, especially designed to make sure all teachers are of excellent physical and mental condition. Cause if we're not, we would just fall over and die. Had the spring show last week with marvellous result but loads of work, just came home from a two day field trip (including damp tents, broken bicycles and strong winds) with my year 7 class, got a pile of papers to grade, final grades are due tomorrow evening, have to practise mountain climbing with my class since next field trip is right on school start in August, graduation is on Thursday and those are just the MAJOR events, did you notice that family matters aren't even mentioned...

My little one sang solo in church on their summer concert on Mother's Day, what a moment :)

And I have finally had (read with force taken) some time to craft a bit and when going through my blog list I found that I could combine four challenges into one card. Now, that's the way, aha aha, I like it!

I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly, Quilted the paper for ABC Challenge, used a charm for Whiff of Joy and used purple and yellow (gold is yellow, yes?) for Stampin for the weekend. Phew! :)
