A Back to School Hello!

With school just around the corner I wanted to make a cute little card that I could send out to my Niece and Nephew. I wanted to send them some words of encouragement for their new year and I know how much all kids just love getting mail!!! I also wanted to send a card to a little girl whom I babysat for two years, she is starting school for the first time this year. 

This is the fun little card that I came up with:

For my Niece

For my Nephew

For our little friend

 I thought using lined school paper would be so cute to stamp my sentiment on, just to give it that school feeling :) . The rest of the patterned paper is by K and Company's Sweet Nector stack and by Pink Paisley’s Olds school pack. The solid paper is from Recollections, and has been embossed the Cuttlebug folder Baby's Breath for the two pink cards and Spots and Dots for the black card.
The sentiment is from a Scrappy moms set: Everyday Greetings. This cute pencil is cut from the Cricut cartridge Simply Charmed.

I hope these cards arrive to their destinations this week before school starts, and that they all enjoy getting them!

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi every one, I just wanted to say a quick hello. I know that it has been a long time since my last post but I have been busy and tired.  We have just moved at the end of July, relocating cities! Our new home is in a city that is about 2 hours from our past home. My husband was promoted within his company which is why we moved and so far it has been great, he loves his new job we all love our new house!!
Moving here was a big step for us as a family. We do not know anyone here so we are all starting from scratch, new schools for my boys, new office for my husband and a new church for all of us! It was hard leaving our life behind.  I cannot wait until we have a couple of weeks of school under our belt and my boys have made some friends, and we find a church where we can start making some great connections with others and with God.
My birthday is tomorrow and a little while ago my husband was asking what I would like. I mentioned I would like a Cinch and that is what I got!! (he is such a great husband, and I am reminded of it all the time) It arrived Tuesday so I immediately opened it and then started a new mini album…lol! I think that I will work on it a little this afternoon J  
I hope everyone is having a great day J
Thanks for stopping by,
