Fall is DEFINITELY in the air lately. The days are still nice and sunny but it's getting downright c-c-c-cold at night! It went down into the 40's last night where I live. Brrrrr. This fall is my son's first time going to school. Eeek! He will be 5 in October so he is just now starting pre-school, but it is at the same school where he will be in kindergarten. He was a little scared at first, but once he got to his classroom, and the teacher started reading a story, he didn't even remember I was in the room! I was a bit weepy all day, but I am a proud momma and I know this will be a wonderful experience for him. He actually has two teachers in the classroom, and I wanted to make a card for each of them for the start of the school year.
My first card features a digi stamp from Simply Betty Stamps called Oscar Pile of Leaves, he is part of her line of Jude and the Rockers. This guy really reminded me of my son, I could totally see him taking a flying leap like this! Oscar is colored with Copics with glossy accents added to his eyes, the leaves are cut out and popped up, and the background is sponged with Cloudy Blue and Spanish Olive inks. The sketch is the September sketch over at I Heart 2 Stamp:
Papers: My Mind's Eye 6X6 stack "All Spice", Cloud 9 Design - "Harvest" Luster Papers
Embellies: Jolee's Boutique dimensional stickers, "Felt Acorns"
My 2nd card is another Simply Betty Stamps called Brittany Bundled Up. Isn't she just the cutest? She is also colored with Copics with glossy accents added to her eyes, and fussy cut and popped up. Sketch # 224 at Sketch Saturday
Papers: Cloud 9 Design - "Harvest" Luster Papers
Embellies: Recollections floral embellishments, Brads and ribbon from stash, Memory Box "Fauntleroy Crest" die.
Now I just have to figure out which teacher to give each card to! I'm sure I will agonize over the decision, because that's what I do! LOL.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. While I DREAD the winter, I do enjoy the fall, and we especially look forward to Halloween, our favorite holiday! Happy Fall Ya'll!
