First Day of School...

Hi there.

     I am very very happy to have a moment to drop in this card and share it with you.  I made this for the first day of school and over here in our little town today was 'THAT" day.   Even though my two M&Ms are in 11th grade this year I still wanted to make a card of encouragement for my oldest M&M as he tends to get a little nervous just before the big day.  :O)
     I actually made this card up a couple of weeks ago and then I ended up working a lot of overtime so posting it just didn't happen until now.   I am however over on Instagram , so at least I am able to get a bit of my daily crafting fix in. (Needless to say, I am ADDICTED to it!)  I haven't figured out how to put a link to my Instagram on my blog yet,  but if you want to come over and say "Hi" I am of course under Gobeagirl over there.
     So,  enough of all that let's get onto the card.  As you can see I used one of my FAVES on this one.  He is one of the Creeper Crew from the Twisted set and his name is Thomas.   I just love him and I thought that he was perfect for a back to school look what with his little bag over his shoulder and that  really cool looking outfit that he picked out just for the day. lol....  I was really getting into the back to school idea, but I didn't want it to come out as if it was for a little kid, so I pulled some of the patterned paper out of this set from doodlebug and inked it up to make it look more like an old ruler versus the more bright (primary) colors that I would tend to use for someone younger.   I even used a staple from my Tim Holtz tiny attacher to add the sentiment.  In mind nothing says school quite like a bunch of staples.  lol....
     Alright guys,  I am so happy to still have some of you patiently waiting for me to put something up once in a while.  It truly means so very much to me.  I hope that you will continue to follow me and check in as I have some exciting news coming up to share with you all on Sept. 4th, so stay tuned.
    I will talk at you later.
Hugs Lisa G
