Where has the time gone? Just yesterday these kids were in kindergarten, and it hasn’t been more than a couple of years since they were in for the 6 month baby photos! We both wear our name bracelets with a 1/2″ charm, EVERYDAY, to remind us how quickly time passes!
Missy and I met and became fast friends a long time ago. It was when her daughter and my son both started kindergarten. These same kids just had their senior pictures made last week, and are about to embark on their 13th and final year at Battle Ground Academy. Remind me not to blink again!
Whew! This is going to be a tough (but fun) year! I predict an emotional roller coaster all the way around! Thank goodness for all the crafty distractions! Happy Friday!! Nashville schools started back today, and surrounding counties (including us) will start back within the next two weeks! To keep from getting emotional this early….let’s talk CARDS!!! It’s time for another card challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge Blog. Take some time to jump over and see what my creative DT friends have been busy with! Our laser printer has been down this week, so I ended up doing a “back up” card and finished a sponsor card, JUST in time!
This week’s sponsor is Digi Stamps 4 Joy. You have a week to load your card, anything goes (as always), and be in the running for some free prizes! YIPPEE!!! For my sponsor card, I chose Book Worm (in honor of the start of a new school year). I used a sketch from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge to follow.
As I said earlier, I was in a bit of a panic with the laser printer, so the card I originally loaded includes this adorable image from Cheryl Alger, A Lazy Afternoon. I’m still clinging to the last two weeks of summer vacation, and ANY lazy afternoons that might bring! For this card, I used a sketch from My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge for some inspiration. Clouds are from a homemade template and Tim Hotlz distress ink, tumbled glass. Sizzix dies, stardust stickles, gems, and a cute summer brad complete the look!
