Kickin' It "Old Skool"

Smile :) It's mid-week! We're getting there!!!

Ok, so tonight I went to my first official PTA meeting, and it wasn't what I was expecting, LOL! It was very informative and direct - educational... a great way to really know what's going on, not only with the kids, but with the faculty too! I'm glad that I went :)  And, yes, I volunteered and signed up for a few things, like the book fair and harvest. And hopefully I'll be helping out with putting together a 'school scrapbook' - should be fun :) So if anyone has any ideas or advice for such a huge project we will be so very much grateful to you! Thanks!

Ok, onto my card for today!!!
The Greeting Farm's latest challenge is to go "Old Skool" - use a stamp that's not listed on the list that they provided :) FUN!!!

So this challenge motivated me to finally ink up one of my unused stamps, Space Ian... 

I would have never thought that I would be using Halloween DP to try to create an outerspace scene/theme for this lil Ian :)  I used Cosmo Cricket "Matilda" DP - Me likey ;)  I hope you do too!!!
Oh! and isn't that the coolest ribbon?! It came in a Grab Bag that I purchased for $1 at Taylored Expressions! Sometimes I hesitate in making purchases like this since you never know what you will end up with, but for just a buck, sometimes you will find a few golden surprises ;)

Thanks for stopping by! and have fun getting over hump-day ;)
Later gators!!!
