Back to School 2

Good morning my friends and welcome visitors,

To enter the prize challenge please click HERE

Today I would like to show you the 2nd Back to School card that I made, this is for my "pretend granddaughter" She is a little older so I made her something a bit more sophisticated now that she is in 5th grade.

This is another box card from svg cuts.

Here is the back.  I used chalkboard paper and stamped the sentiment on the back with silver, then I smeared it a little bit to make it look like the black board had been erased a couple of times.

I made this envelope to go with!  I meant to tell you yesterday that the paper I am using is from DCWV - The Grade School Stack and Doodlebug Designs - Back to School.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

One more thing before I go....LOOK WHO IS WALKING!

Oh I am sooo happy to be rid of the wheelchair, I will never take my legs for granted again!

Even the rain couldn't take the smile off my face!  See how baggy my clothes are?  I had lost 32 pounds right before I broke my ankles, I have (so far) only gained back 6 pounds.
