Quick card

Happy Friday and Happy Labor Day Weekend!

I have a quick post this morning.  I made a card for my niece's 5th birthday this weekend.  Hoping we can make it to the party since I've been sick, hubby isn't feeling well, and our daughter has the sniffles!  Gotta love end of summer colds!  Praying our son doesn't get sick too!  School starts in 6 days!

Here is my quick card using scraps from my stash, sketch by Paper Players -- my first time entering into one of their challenges!

Have a fantastic weekend, thanks for stopping by!

End of 5th Grade

Ahhh, the summer is closing in on us.  I'm excited for the kids to get back into school and for me to start working again!  I'll miss our trips to the lake and having friends to our house, but I crave the routine of non-summer living!

With the start of school, perhaps I'll find more time to scrap!  But till then, I have made a quick layout for a few challenges!

That's my son in the light blue shirt with black hair in the back!  He just turned 12!  Went by so fast!  Anyway, this was his last day of 5th grade (picture and mat and washi tape given to me by his teacher!) and the school where he has learned for the past three years.  Next week he begins 6th a school that just houses that grade!  It was the original school for kindergarten to 12th grade before the houses went up like crazy around here!

I used DCWV papers, Cricut Mickey Font cartridge and perfect pearls.  The bingo card is stamped using Jillibean Soup sold by Unity Stamp.

That's all for now folks!  Enjoy your Monday afternoon~

Flying By....

Good morning my scrappy friends!  My son's 12th birthday is tomorrow, YIKES!  That went by too fast!  I made a card for him but I think this is the last year I can make this kind of card...perhaps a little juvenile.  We'll see next year....

Moving on, to keep my tears away about him growing up so fast, I've entered this card into a few challenges.
