Hello! I made this card for my teaching partner, Mary Lynn. Here are the details:
-Stamp: Teachabella
-Ribbon: Hobby Lobby, ribbon by the yard
-Colors: Card stock SU Purely Pomegranate, Blue bayou, Whisper White
-Other, Cuttlebug, Divine Swirls embossing folder, Non SU pewter brads, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, blending stumps,

Can you believe I found ribbon so close to Blue Bayou?!! I didn't have a card stock sample with me but I had a gut feeling that it was right. It was on clearance for $1.18 for about 15 yards. What a Deal!!!!!

I have been doing lots of shopping in preparation for back to school. I have to say that I am one of those people who shop around for the best deals on supplies each week. My favorite so far has been Staples! They had crayons for 5 cents, binders for 33cents, Crayola markers for 68 cents. I just get what I need, but lots of my students don't come to school with supplies or they lose them by the end of the first quarter. I like to be prepared! I spent the entire day in my boiling hot classroom today. It was miserable. But, I got a ton of work done. Dropping the kids off at daycare was not fun. Nathan was okay but Paige was very upset. She told us she didn't want to go because "she didn't want to wipe her BUTT by herself!" That's four years old for you!

Very cute card!

My heart goes out to you Tiff as you adjust to going back to work and all that that entails for your family. Kids are resilient, and they are gonna do just fine! Remember, God is always in control.

I just gotta say though, that Paige is absolutely hysterical. What a personality she has! Thanks to her, I got my giggle for the day. :D

Keeping y'all in prayer!
