First day back...

Here it is the first day back to school for my daughter, my son starts next week. Lucky for him, he has another week off! I made my daughter a card just to make her day alot easier. I used my stamping bella stamp called "woofin it up" and the sentiment is from stamping bella as well. I used my lyras AND prismas for this card. I also sponged with versa magic (sold at stamping bella) wheat colour. Last monday we went to stamping Bella for a class that was headed by the ever so talented Paula. She taught the class how to do grass on the bottom of your images. I have been trying so hard to perfect this! It will take some time to have it looking like the Paula's! Oh well..I do love a challenge! Hope you are enjoying some very nice weather were ever you are!

I also want to thank each and every one of you who visits and leaves a comment. I absolutely love to read them...it always makes my day brighter!
