Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge DT Card--Week 18

Good morning! There is a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday, and I'd like to show you my card for it. The theme is back to school. Since my 6 year old just recently learned to read, she has made it her purpose in life to read to her little brother. She even reads him Spider Man books, even though she is not a fan!

I love this time of year. This is the time for new beginnings--new notebooks and pencils, a fresh mind relaxed in the summer heat, a fresh fall breeze, new friends, new activities. I really do get the most accomplished in the fall. Maybe it is because my husband is a professor, so our family's schedule revolves around a school one, or maybe I just like September, but for me, this time of year is my "new year."

Challenge Entered:
Sketch Saturday

What are you planning for your fall? I'd like to hear! I hope it's a good one!

Have a great day and happy stampin'!

My Card for Just Magnolia and Magnolia Down Under

Hello everyone! I've gotten inspired and made a card for Just Magnolia and Magnolia Down Under today. I really love Magnolia stamps, and they make such wonderful cards!

Sooo, after a car breakdown and a 3 hour wait in a lovely gentleman's livingroom in the middle-of-nowhere-Arkansas with my 3 children, I DID get to Little Rock last weekend. And I bought the most fabulous stack of papers from K & Company. They are double-sided and just really fun. I've used one sheet/both sides in this card today. And wow, the cardstock they have is wonderful! So many great colors that our little Hobby Lobby doesn't have. I also got the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis punch that I've been coveting. Good thing I don't live too very close to Little Rock, huh?! :-)

Anyway, here's my little card, and I've listed the challenges I'd like to enter. Thanks for taking time to look, and maybe leave me a little note, if you like it. :-)

Challenges Entered:
Just Magnolia--Sketch
Magnolia Down Under--Birthday
Bunny Zoe's Crafts--Summer Days
Incy Wincy Designs--Summer Fun
Ooh La La--Birthdays
