Season's Greetings

This is my take on Paper Smooches SPARKS' Picture perfect challenge. I used the dots from Leafy Greens, the green leaves are from the Hang Ups set and the sentiment from Swanky Snow Dudes.

Have a great day everyone, hugs, Karin

I'm finishing off with a quote from one of my students;

I was teaching my ninth graders some embroidery stitches  and showed three girls how to make French knots. One of them asked - What do you use these for?
I showed them some examples and gave them some more suggestions; You can make flowers, borders or you can even make a tree full of them as leaves.
-What???? - If you make a tree from these  - you don't have a life!!!

 How I LOVE my students (-:  - they make me laugh every day !!!
