Getting my School Times Mojo on...


What a week! A flurry of cardmaking, back to school preparation, and trying to steal a few moments of summer before they are gone. I never thought I would say this, but I can't wait for school to start. I love my boys. I super do. But...
Oh. My. Goodness.
Having two four year olds is, um, tiring. Especially when their favorite activities include running, jumping, running, jumping, and running.
The school themed card (can you tell I have school on the brain?) used the sketch by Mary, and it turned out even cuter than I planned. I just love sketches... and I love that this card is perfect for the SimonSaysStamp challenge!
Ingredients
Paper: Basic Grey, MyMindsEye, Foof-a-La, DCwV, Graphic45, Little Yellow Bicycle
Embellishments: Gold brad, teastained ruler ribbon
Ink: colorbox and Ranger
Sketch: MojoMary
