Back to School Night


Wow, I can't believe my kids are heading back to school tomorrow. This summer went by so fast, I have to admit a stay at home mom with three kids is ready for a break.LOL! Even though I enjoyed my summer with my kids I am ready for things to get in routine. I haven't been around much this weekend, getting things ready for tomorrow and 2 soccer games, it has been a quite busy weekend. I did however get a card in while I was cooking dinner tonight..LOL....This was a real simple card that didn't take too much time. I still have baths and trying to get the kids to bed early will also be a chore.


I decided to the challenge over at Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle Saturday. It was to make a monochromatic card. I think I have only made one of these once, so this isn't something I usually do and I thought it would be a fun challenge. Why not give it a try ,right??? I really love this new color rich razzleberry from Stampin Up, so this was the first color that came to mind. I really hope you enjoy my card!! I hope everyone has had a GREAT weekend.


Here's the recipe


Sentiment - Stampin Up set Cut & Curly, Stamped in Rich Razzleberry Ink

Cardstock - Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White

Designer Paper - SU Cottage Wall

Accessories - Cut & Curly SU Punch, Kaiser Pearls, SU Rich Razzleberry Ribbon, Scallop Marvy Punch, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, White Gel Pen
