First Day of School!

Good morning! Today is the first day of school for my boys and so everyone is back in school and my house sure is quiet. I do have a list of things to complete before they come home today (only a half day for everyone) but before I start those I wanted to share a cute little 3"x3" card with you today and a couple of pictures of my kids on their first days of school. I hope their day goes well and that they enjoy catching up with all their friends on the summer time fun. Now back to the card. I LOVE the new stamp set Greeting Card Kids and have been using it a lot lately. I will share some more cards later that I have made with it, today I decided to use the school kids. I stamped them with Jet Black Stazon and watercolored with the Watercolor Crayons and Blender Pen. I used some sponging to make the sky with the Bashful Blue Classic Stamp Pad and then added a little ground with the Blender Pen and Chocolate Chip Marker. I may add a little more sponging on the ground but haven't quite decided yet. This card is the perfect size to send a note to the teacher or even slip in your child's lunch box or backpack to let them know you are thinking of them. If you haven't taken a look at this stamp set I encourage you to! It is just to cute and if you want to watercolor then it is the perfect set. Well, I am off to run errands, do laundry and start working on the three folders of papers I need to fill out for school. Filling out all those forms is just one of my favorite activities, ok not really not even close. :) Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. Now that the kids are back in school I hope to get into a regular stamping routine so that I have new things to share. Thanks, Tonya

Oh my goodness, Tonya, your children are really growing and are absolutely adorable. I miss seeing them all the time. I love Kaylee's beautiful hair, perfect for her first day of high school. I love all of the beautiful projects and cards you have shared with us. Keep on creating! They're awesome! Lorie
