Hello, It is Photo Week over at Just Us Girls and Lisa E has chosen a Back to School Picture for us. You would think with my background of working in the school system for 24 years that I would have oodles of School themed products. Well, that is NOT the case! When I was working, I used to always dread going into a store and seeing the Back to School signs and it would make me so sad cause I knew Summer was coming to an end! However, that is in the past, and I certainly don’t have to worry about that anymore. YAY! With that being said, I did scrounge through all of my supplies in search of something that would work and found this cute Paper die to save me!
Card Details: The Paper Die is from Paper Smooches. I drew the lines on after I colored my flower (should have left them off) with Prisma Colored Pencils. That flower is an old block stamp that I have had for ages. The greeting is from MFT.
The rest of the DT and our guest-Cathy did a far better job than I did! Come by and check them out! Also, I need to say thanks to my buddy Cathy for being with us the past month, you did an incredible job and we were lucky to have you! Take care, Nanc’

I think I gave away most of my school stamps when I retired! I love the perforated paper die…like it was torn out of a notebook! Cute, cute card with the colors you chose too!

How funny that you, Carol and I – all being educators – have so few school-themed products in our respective stashes. Like you, back-to-school came with bitter sweet feelings. Glad to be retired (although I still have school dreams often! Yikes!). Your card is super sweet, especially the pretty flower on the notebook paper.

I think the lines are perfect and really give a ‘note’book feel to that die cut panel, Nancy.
