Back To School!

Hello Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Wow!  The summer sure did fly by!  I can't believe that it's back to school time already.  Luckily for me; this is where my summer really gets fun!  Since I am retired, the last of August and all of September is when we do the most fishing & crabbing.  The days cool down, the pool water is perfect and the neighborhood gets quiet again.

Here is a card I made for one of my little neighborhood friends.  I won this digital stamp from Creative Playground.   This digital stamp kit is called  School Time Ted and Trudy.  I really love this digital stamp, I fussy cut it on my Cameo Silhouette and because it has such clean lines, it really cut well.  It was very fun to color too!  The kit came with this wonderful background paper!

Recipe for this card:
Digital Stamp - School Time Ted
Copic Markers
Paper - paper that came with digital stamp kit and scrap paper.
Washi Tape - Numbers
Brad - from stash
Sentiment came with digital stamp kit.
