I always find it so hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend – especially a long weekend like this one. My littlest guy Sam, who is 2 years old, ended up with an ear infection, so of course he’s been crabby, and my husband’s away on a business trip – so it was me and the 5 kids all weekend (and holiday Monday). I know the kids love long weekends, but all I can say is that while I enjoyed spending time with them, I’m also glad it was back to school today!
Today’s card is a fun and whimsical one that I really dug into my stash for – I used stuff from all over the place!
Not sure if you can tell from the picture but I used the Life of the Party Dots background stamp I got from that Hero Arts class at CHA to create a really subtle background on the Basic Gray patterned paper. I did it by inking the stamp up in Faded Jeans Distress ink, stamping off once and then stamping it onto the patterned paper.
