Back to School Already!

Before you check out my card, you have to click here and visit Steph's blog for a change to win $150 at the stamp place of your choice...what an amazing blog candy giveaway!

Can you believe that the kids will be in school in a little under 3 weeks?! I can't wait! LOL! So, with that in mind, I used this great lady, Francine Flounder, from Sunshines Stamps to make a back to school card for my daughters teacher. If you like, you can blurf on over to Sunshines Stamps Blog and buy her for yourself!


I random stamped the background paper and used some ribbon that Shanna gave me and I've been hoarding. It's simple, but came together quickly and quite nicely I think.
We haven't "officially" started our school shopping yet, but we've been to the mall once to see what is out there. I'm off work the week before school starts so the girls and I will use some of that time to get everything that they'll need for the first few weeks. And of course, I'll have a pick up a few things for me too!

Stamps: Sunshine Stamps Francine Flounder, Misc. CTMH alphabet, Magnolia Stamps Blackboard
Paper: Scraps from my bin
Ink: Copic Markers, CTMH Twilight Ink
Accessories: Misc. Ribbon from Shanna
