Back to School!

     Yesterday was the first day of school for many of the kids in my area.  Lots of moms are letting go of their babies for the first time.  Oh, I remember that feeling!  It is filled with very mixed emotions.  This week, at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the theme is back to school.

Here is what I used.

Card stock:  Gina K. Designs, Lipstick Red base.
Designer Paper:  The green is from American Crafts, The apple is Debbie Mumm, The tags
were cut from a sheet of Crate Paper.
Image: is from Dearie Dolls.
Embellishments:  Epoxy letters and stars, Metal school brads, and natural twine bow.

     I know a little one who will be starting pre-school soon, so I thought I would send a little ice cream money as a treat.

Update: I had my stitches removed from my hand, yesterday.  Dr. said it looks great, but I am out of work for 2 more weeks.  After that, I can not lift extra for 4-6 more weeks.  I have to admit, this is a little more complicated than I thought.  I am however happy I asked questions and found some of things that hurt are all normal.  Although the incision is in your hand, the surgery is actually in your wrist.  Explains a lot!

     Thanks a zillion for stopping by.  Tuesday already, phew!

What a cute back-to-school card! I just love those Dearie Dolls images and all the stickers and school elements you added! Good to know things are on the right track for healing - now to just be patient and let nature take it's course ;)

Mary Anne, your back to school card is so cute and fun. Love the little apple on there. What says back to school better than that!
Yep, that little one will be starting all the school stuff soon. They grow up so fast it seems.
Good news on your hand and even better that you don't have to go back to work yet! LOL! I know you're probably ready to get back in the swing of things and have your hand back to normal again though.
