Ah, Monday... the last day of summer, this. The kiddos start school tomorrow, and the hubby has this week off. While this may interfere with my first week of "alone" time without the kiddos :), I plan on putting him to good use :) Since the first day of school is a "parent/child" day, and I can't split myself in two for the twins (how I wish I could some days...) Dad gets to go to school too! I will probably go in Johnny's classroom, and Dad will go with Mikey. Then on Wednesday I want to try to squeeze in an eye appointment (I need new contacts since Johnny washed my last pair down the sink and wearing my glasses makes me claustrophobic) and on Thursday I have a meeting for being a substitute teacher (I need to make some money to buy some more craft supplies)... all these appointments! I planned to spend the first week of "back to school" drinking fancy coffee and watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 5 while I crafted. Oh well, there is always next week.

Unless I am subbing.

But have no fear! I have something to remind me to smile - it is this cutie little card I made with the Sketch Saturday sketch. I used some of my favorite papers, and of course one of my favorite color combs- pink and green. I almost always make the inside cute too - I used my favorite Fiskars punch for some detail and texture on the inside too :)

Papers: Graphic 45, MyMindsEye
Image: Sugar Nellie Stamp
Embellishments: Brad, chipboard tag
Tools: Fiskars punch
Distress ink and colored pencils
