For all the Moms........

Hi everyone!  It's that time of year - school is starting!  It's been more than a few years for me, but I remember how it felt to get the kids off to school and FINALLY have a day all to myself!  So I made you all a card in celebration of that first day:


I kept the design pretty simple, just did a little paper-piecing, using papers from Basic Grey Bowties and Echo Park A Walk in the Park, and added some die-cut clouds and twine.  I used these TCM stamps:


Vintage Rides

and Sweet Birthday (Celebrate)

Sweet Birthday

Enjoy, Moms!  Do something special for yourself - you deserve it!!

What a cutie ;)I remember those first days of school and getting everyone ready including myself. Since I was teacher, my sweet husband always took our girls to school their first day since I had to be at my school greeting my new ones. It was always "whew" - now breathe :)
