Back to school!! ALL DAY!!

Hi everyone, how are you this evening! Well, tomorrow is a big day for my daughter, Kyah. She is starting first grade and she will be going all day. Wow, I can't believe it! Anyway, we went to meet her new teacher, on Friday, and see her new classroom. We had never met her before, so it was nice to put a face with the name. Kyah is very excited!! So, of course, I had to make her teacher a card. I had gotten some DCWV mat stacks at Joann's; I love the mat stacks!! I have a 6x6 pad from Basic Grey that I love too. I am pretty anal about everything going together perfectly! Gee, imagine that! Me particular! Haha! Anyway, when I had gotten these, there was a Back to School one. I had to have it and I knew I would use it for Kyahs' teachers! I actually couldn't wait! So tonight, I finally made something with it! I am not as impressed with the marker job as I am with how the rest of it turned out. Although I did play a little with some blending, that made it a little better for me. I hope you like it! I have shared all aspects of this card, so you could see how everything has to match! The funny thing is, that when I was finished with it, I thought of the perfect stamp for the back. I was so psyched and it only took me a minute to locate it. I had gotten those Studio G stamps, at Mike's, to decorate my calendar and I remembered there was an apple in the Sept. set! Love it! It's the little things, ya know? Ok, so I have babbled quite enough. It is off to bed for me; tomorrow is a big day. I am volunteering at the school, to help the incoming Kindergarteners find their way around and get on the right bus. Hope you and your families are well! I'll see you soon and thanks so much for visiting! Oh yeah, don't forget to check out my new award! I have it listed below! Until next time...............................
