Hi there! Well, we successfully navigated the first week of school here and are now set to enjoy a long holiday weekend! I thought I'd try to use some of the time to get caught up on a few things... like blogging!
I still can't quite believe that my little man is in second grade! We have a little tradition where I make him a special first day of school breakfast (with bacon, of course) and a card. This year I used the adorable Back To School Madness digi from The Paper Shelter. I colored the image wih Copics and then cut and matted it using Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).
It's no surprise that I piled on some dies (although not nearly as many as some of my cards). Here I've used Tim Holtz Weathered Clock (Sizzix) as well as Book Brackets, Clipboard Border, and Brackets and Arrows (La-La-Land Crafts). The notebook edge is a border punch. The fishtail flag is either a die or a punch. I can't remember which! Lol The "test" is from a 12x12 designer paper that has been in my stash forever called The Boyfriend Papers by Cosmo Cricket. Black paper clip and 2nd Grade sticker are also from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by and wishing a wonderful Labor Day weekend to my US followers!
