Well, I just discovered last night that I don't really have much of anything image-wise, that is school related! and there are sooo many adorable images out there... I guess some 'back-to-school' shopping is in order for me soon ;)
My boys start school in exactly 2 weeks!!! Just 2 more to go!!! I thought we had 3, lol! Time goes by so fast! I'm going to have a 1st grader and a Pre-K big boy ;) We're all so excited!!!

Here's a card I created for our 1st grade teacher (we haven't received our paperwork yet, so we don't know who they are yet!) Just a lil card saying HI and good luck with the new school year ;)

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
- Stamp with Fun Challenge #73: Card for a Girl
- Catch The Bug Challenge: Back-to-School use Primary Colors
- Delightful Challenges: Back-to-School with Primary Colors

LOOK! I paper pieced her cute dress! I barely rarely do that, lol! It's so intimidating to me! but I looove how it turned out... and I think I have a bit more confidence in it now after practicing on a bunch of other images last night too ;)


I am LOVING my Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kits!!! and I think August's Kit is my fave of all so far :)  I'm loving Echo Park's "Walk in the Park" papers and coordinating stickers... I've made 2 other cards using the kit already too! ha! That's a first for me, I'll be sharing those later this week ;)

Sorry, I'm rambling... back to this card...
This is another darling lil Pure Innocence clear stamp called "Happy Mail" from MFT... I also used my MFT Die-namics, Ribbon and Cork! In my book, you can never go wrong with Kraft and Cork on a card ;) hee, hee!

I hope you likey! and I hope the Teacher will too :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Tuesday :*)
