Today is our first day of school in Pennsylvania…we got a bit of a late start here due to some construction but it is always a fun day…alarms…a bit of scrambling….what to wear…pictures…pencils…

AND head over to our Facebook page, too! Leave a comment over there about what the first day of school is like in your house!  I know it is a crazy day here!!! And if you don’t have kids in school then share a found memory you have about your first day of school.  We want to here it…we are gearing up for 8000 likes over there and can’t wait!

We hope you had fun this week. We sure did! We will post our winners next Monday or Tuesday. You can still comment today and all weekend long…

Today we have some cards for you!

Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira created this FUN window card. Is it ever possible to have too much woodgrain?  I didn’t think so. She used the Sizzix Tim Holtz woodgrain folder for the embossing and then the woodgrain Sweet Stamp Shop  stamped on the inside of the card.

And close up of the flowers. Melissa used a Spellbinder’s Label die to create the window.

And the inside:

And Design Team Member Debbie Standard created this cute card! She used the back of her cardstock for the bus and all that fun embossing and sanding is just perfect! Don’t forget to run that “grass” through your Fiskars Paper crimper for that perfect look…add a Petaloo flower and you have a perfect Back To School card!

    I forgot to say that the first day of school at my house was always hectic. Very. But then I’d get to enjoy peace and quiet for several hours, so it was worth it:)

  21. Linda R. says:

    Love that wood grain on the first card….School days memories are so precious. I remember the first day we sent my son off….sniff sniff! He was SO VERY excited and I was scared to death. Sigh. At least I can smile about it now.

  30. Keren says:

    Love the frame over the wood grain. Great cards!

  31. Thanks for your publish. My partner and i have usually observed that a majority of people are desperate to lose weight when they wish to look slim in addition to looking attractive. On the other hand, they do not usually realize that there are other benefits so that you can losing weight as well. Doctors claim that obese people come across a variety of disorders that can be perfectely attributed to their particular excess weight. The great news is that people who sadly are overweight as well as suffering from numerous diseases can reduce the severity of their particular illnesses simply by losing weight. You are able to see a steady but identifiable improvement with health as soon as even a negligible amount of losing weight is realized.
