You've Got Smarts...Addicted to CAS #70~School, Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Back to School, CAS(E) This Sketch #136, TAWS~Link Up to Win

Hello again... 

Come September, a certain someone's niece will be starting kindergarten!!  Gahhhh...my little girl is growing up way, way, way too fast! I'm even tearing up, thinking about her going to school. "The places she'll go": must keep that in mind. Sniffle. Sniffle. Yes, a whole new phase of her life's journey begins. As for me, a new journey, too, because her class = a whole new potential audience to make 'stuff' for! Woo hoooo! Look out, Ms. T's kindergarten class, because Aunty C has plans ( (hope the teachers won't mind if I wade in with a card or 60 at times)! And the added bonus: more school-themed products to invite into my collection. More cheering!

Okay, settling down.  Here's my card for Ms. T, using The Alley Way Stamps Learning Curve set:


Isn't that a cute sentiment? Fits Ms. T to a 't'!  Me, a biased Aunty C? Yep! But she does have smarts; lots of them!  My row of school supplies was inspired by sweet Leigh's sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch #136



Along with the card: a bookmark.  I still need to make one for Mr. C, as he will not be impressed if big sister has one and he doesn't.


Here's her 'starting school' two-some:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Back to School

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,


Warning: some post-a-poolza might be happening here for the next day or two.  "Excessive" card-making (or attempting, at any rate) going on;that's what happens when it's rainy and cool out or when it's too hot, sunny and zany windy (as it is right now) or when my husband is away (Ottawa again and more travels to come) or when the realization that 'back to work' is five days away and one must craft crazily while one can.... Anyway...cards are a-happening!

  18. I can hardly wait to see the results of several days of nothing but craft tiime!!! If the rest are anything even remotely close to these two projects, then we are in for some PRETTY DANG A-MAZING posts!

    Your coloring and shading is perfect! Seriously, could not get any better! And the colors all WORK. You know how sometimes there is one color that just doesn't belong...well, not the case here! Great call pal! BTW...WINNER, WINNER on the card and the tag! I'd bet my weekly Bingo allowance on it!
