I am here with a School Daze card....I say daze because it is my 5 yr old granddaughter's first day of public school kindergarten this week and it is a whole new experience for our homeschooled family!!! Eeek! For a variety of reasons, our daughter has decided to put her little girl in school and none of us knows the first thing about how to even do it!! Ha. Dear daughter is, of course, getting it all figured out, but it is quite a mental adjustment to us all. I naturally decided to make my little granddaughter a First Day of School card for this big event.
The patterned paper and the pencil die cut are from a very old Imaginisce Back to School set that is one of the very first prizes I won in my early days of craft blog hopping. (This one came from PaperCrafts. I told you I have had it a long time!!) I can't find the name of this collection on any of the packaging. But, finally, for the first time....I have it out and am using it. Who would have guessed?
The image and sentiment are from My Favorite Things - Pure Innocence: Emma and Her Backpack (apparently discontinued). I stamped them with my MISTI using Versafine ink in Onyx Black and heat embossed them
Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. I think it turned out cute despite my non-existent coloring skills using these markers!! Thank you for being patient with me. :) Maybe I should have used watercolor paper or mixed media paper instead of cardstock....not sure! Oh, well... I know one little girl who will like the card no matter what. Awwwwww....
