Back to School with Harry!!!

Hey! It's Wednesday already! How cool is that?! :)

I have a lil postcard to share with you today!

First, I'd like to mention that I would like to enter my lil postcard to the following challenges:
- Pixie Dust Studio Challenge #38: "Back to School"
- The Pink Elephant Challenge #83: "Back to School"
- Allsorts Challenges Week #68: "New Beginnings"
- Crazy 4 Challenges #53: Book Related
- Our Creative Corner ABCs and 123s: Use Letters and/or Numbers
- Fussy and Fancy Challenge #18: "Back to School"

I made this to slip into Nicky's lunchbox yesterday - a little note to let him know that we were thinking of him, a lil encouragement to get help him get thru the rest of his day and wishing him the best for first day of school ever ;)

He loves anything to do with Harry Potter! (Even though I haven't let them watch all the movies yet! Just the first 2!) I knew that Harry would be the best way to go... plus, it's small enough to use as a bookmark too ;)

.... sigh... I know, I have such bad handwriting! lol! But it's mine, and I know that he'll appreciate it more rather than seeing something from the printer ;)

These delish school-ish papers are Bo Bunny's "Learning Curve" Cut Outs and my (actually, lil sis') EK Success border punch and The Paper Studio's sentiment stamp!
No embellies, he doesn't like any kind of ribbon on his cards, lol! and I didn't want to make it any thicker than the layers that are on there already...

You can find Harry Potter and his friends from Hogwarts
 at the Pixie Dust Studio HERE!!!

Thanks so much for looking! Have a fab day :)
See you tomorrow for a fun-filled day of challenges!!!
