I'm Making Cards for Card Sketch A Day

Yipee, I finally am going to get my cards up someplace besides my own blog. Susie Q Scrapbook is starting a Card Sketch a Day Blog, and I'm making three cards for it. The first one will debut on Sept 11.

Here is a link to her blog.

In other news, we started back to school. As every year begins, I have mixed feelings about going back to school. I like meeting my students and getting back to a routine, but I also feel sad that summer is over. My unlimited time with Andrew is over, and we have to get back to business. His biggest hurdle right now is being able to do 100 addition facts in 5 minutes. That's a lot for a 2nd grader! We'll keep working on it though.

But, this year is especially exciting, because in just 18 weeks we'll have a new little person joining our lives :) What could be more exciting than that.

New Card From Picture It Made

Well, as you can see, I really haven't been keeping up with my blogging!
Here is a new card I made for a friend whose father died. This card uses supplies from a Picture It Made Card Kit.
I also used a new cuttlebug embossing template for the edge embossing on the right. The "stems" of the flowers are made from Quickutz Flourishes. I think it turned out pretty cute :)
Well, it's almost time for Back to School. I start with a meeting today!! Aaargh -- it seems like Aug 11 is too early for Back to School.
But, speaking of August 11, the new Stampin Up Catalog comes out today. Can't wait to see what goodies will be in that! On second thought, maybe it is a good thing I'm going back to school so I'll have money to buy things!
