Back to School!

It's that time of the year again!! I sent my baby boy, Andrew, off to the first grade this morning!! :( What a big change it is for him - our Kindergarten here is still a half day - so today is his first day of being at school all day. It's such a big adjustment - I hope he's having a wonderful first day!! I am very lucky to have a son who gets excited about school and really enjoys it - it sure makes days like this a smidgen easier!

Here is a card I made for Andrew - I am going to give it to him when he gets home today along with a new Webkinz pet (he is OBSESSED with these things) - just a little way to let him know how proud his mommy and daddy are of him. I used School Riley (he is also one of Andrew's favorite Rileys) and I also used stamps from the Hanna Stamps "Teacher Hanna" set to do the background. All images were colored in with Copic markers -even those in the backgroud. The strip of paper in the middle was embossed using the "Numbers" Cuttlebug embossing folder - you know - it's funny - because this is one of the embossing folders I didn't think I wanted - I bought it to do some back to school projects with and I am finding I am using it all the time! The sentiment on this card is from a Studio G clear $1 stamp set from Michael's and all circles were cut using Nestibilities. Thanks so much for stopping by - I am gonna send some ((BIG HUGS)) to all you other Mommies out there who sent your little ones back to school this week too!!
