Back To School


I find it hard to believe that school will soon be starting. I find it even harder to grasp the fact that our eldest grandson, Luke will start kindergarten this year. I wanted to make him a card and tell him we loved him. He is so excited about his first day and the best part is he gets to put his supplies away in his desk. I also made a card for his little brother who tells everyone he is going to pre-school this year. (Actually his mommy is having 'school time' with him.) Life seems to be flying by and they both are growing up much to fast! The image is a Mo Manning and I have colored it with Copics. I used my new SU embossing folder on both cards. It is called Herringbone! All my supplies came from my stash and it was things I have had for several years. I am trying to get back in the swing of things after our extended vacation. I am finding it hard to find my "MOJO". If anyone knows where it can be located please let me know. (Amanda thanks for the site here is the poem I used.)
Kindergarten here you come,
I know you will have lots of fun!
Lots of things to make and do
Reading, writing and counting too!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

What a sweet little poem. Your card will likely go into the "baby scrapbook" and be a part of his life forever. What a sweet thought. Thanks for playing in the embossing challenge with Speedy the Cat.
