Back to school!



My kids had their first day at preschool this morning! We are all excited (maybe I was the most excited??). This is Colin's last year in preschool and Kennedy's first!

I made a card based off the latest Card Patterns Sketch .



I used the Kim Hughes set "Spring Trees" and some Crate Paper and Basic Grey. This was a fun sketch to work with! I'm going to send this card in for the "Cards for Kate" drive that I learned about through Jennifer McGuire's blog . Hopefully I can make some more for her whole family.



Have a great day!
Melissa

Stamps: Spring Trees (Kim Hughes/CFH), sentiment from Vintage Picnic

Yay for adorable preschoolers!! I can't believe that tiny girl is in Mrs. B()s class! Or that she's not a tiny baby anymore.

Sweet card...love the popped up squirrel and how you stitched everything. Thanks so much for playing along with the Card Patterns sketch this week! I'm thrilled to be the sponsor and just posted my own card for the sketch on my blog :)
