woot woot!


This is my first year that I don't have kids going back to "school" ... well high school or grade school.   College starts about the same time but when you're at that point you get yourselves ready to go, LOL!  I guess though a card from your Mom cheering you on is fun.   I didn't really have what I thought were "back to school" stamps but hopefully my boys will enjoy this one.  I came up with the "Back to School" card idea from the challenge over at Twisted Tuesday, started with this week's Freshly Made Sketch and  picked "Red, White & Blue" for the challenge over at A*Muse Studio Challenge.   Here's what I came up with. 

Stay Inspired!

Supplies:  All A*Muse Studio - Paper Pebble CS, Blue Damask Shimmer, Blue Shimmer, Stamps owls well, itty bitty birthday, Ink Lime, Cherry,  Momento Black,  Washi Tape Holiday, Button Assortment Cherry, Black Twine
