Made with Love......

WOW I am getting this in right in the knick of time!! I had stuff to do and didn't think it would take that long!! LOL
Anyways I got my kit and I think they are all so cute!! I wanted to make some cookies for Lauren's teacher ~ as Kelsey had her last year and I know what one's she love ~ so I made this card to accompany them. She was such a wonderful teacher I just wanted to let her know that I appreciate that Lauren got her as well!
The card follows the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and it loosely fits the color option of blue and orange as well! Also Just Magnolia was asking for ribbons and bows so I hope this is enough!!

Paper: My Mind's Eye
Inks: Distress Inks and twinkling H20's
Accessories: flowers ~ Prima, twine and button ~ stash, Pin and Lace ~ Fabric Barn


Well I hope after this first week back at school I get used to being up early and will have energy to create once the girls are in bed! This week I have just been wiped out at 9pm! LOL Plus it has been so nice they stay on the playset until dark. But it is better to let them enjoy it as snow will fly before I know it!
I will leave you with a couple pictures of the girls first day of school!! They were so excited!!
Then getting on the bus:
Well thanks so much for stopping by!! I appreciate your visits!! I hope you all have a wonderful week-end and if your here in the states have a fabulous extended week-end!
