Back to School!!!

Today's the day!! The kids were excited and ready to wear their new duds as they headed out to their first day of school!  Steven... now a sophomore and heading to Lincoln High School (Main).  He was at Lincoln last year as a freshman but they had their own building a bit of a ways down the road from the main building.  So he's super excited to be at the main building with the juniors and seniors!  Emily... in her final year of elementary... 5th grade!  Her school was newly remodeled this summer and she can't wait to see all the changes they made to the inside!  We would drive by frequently as we live a block off the main street which her school is on so we go to see the exterior renovations first-hand.  But... she will be the "seniors" in the school this year and yup, it doesn't take much to get them excited just thinking about that!!  :-) Me... I'm sad they just won't stop growing.  But... I also love watching their personalities blossom and get those first glimpses of what kind of an adult they might be as they get older.  *sigh*  Time moves all to quickly, yes indeed.

Today I am sharing a card I created to go along with the Outlawz Greetings challenge to create an "ABC-123-Back to School" card!  Of course you must including a "greeting" on your card front and follow the challenge theme.

My card started off with Pure Luxury Red Hot card stock and I added a layer of Wild Dandelion.  My image is stamped on Cryogen White card stock from the Paper Temptress before coloring it with my Copic markers.  My stamp set is from Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, "Basket Addictions 3" from Gina K Designs.  The basket is from "Holiday Basket" set by Melanie as well.  

I added a bit of ribbon and topped it off with a little clip I had in my stash.

Last, I'll sign off with the "2012 First Day of School" pic that I swear EVERY mother takes! LOL  

Have a great Wednesday and remember... it's almost the weekend!!!  :-)  *HUGS*
