Cammie and a Little Back to School Humor

I am back after a very full two weeks vacation with the family. We went to Disney World, Charleston, SC, saw their grandmother, and Williamsburg, VA to Water Country. It was packed with lots of things to do and my boys enjoyed every moment of it! To start it off, we were able to have dinner and spend some time with Cammie and her family. It was so good to see her and our boys enjoyed their reunion; all the boys! (Husbands included! LOL) It was Cammie's dh's birthday, so it was even more special to be able to spend it with them and help celebrate. Here are two pictures from that dinner...

"It's the most, wonderful time of the year..." Ok, maybe not, but today is the first day of school for my boys and after a very full summer with bickering, banter, and lots of sun, I am ready to see them off! But the down side? Homework!! Really, is it for them or us?? LOL!! So, in honor of today, I created a card that my neighbor suggested... a back to school "party" card!

Now, this is a silly card that I popped out so please don't be too judgmental on it!! : ) For this card, I used Carolyn King's stamp by Gina K of the little boy and Wineabella by Stamping Bella. I stamped the images and colored them in with both Copics and Prismamarkers. I stamped them again, colored what part of the image I wanted popped up, and cut it out; in this instance, the backpack and dress. Now, I apparently cannot cut out shapes very good, so just imagine that sign is perfect! I made the party horn and punched out the hat. I sponged in the ground and sky, added some ribbon and a sentiment from PTI's set mixed messages. Just a little humor to start your day!! I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Materials Used: Basic Grey boxer dp, Always Artichoke cs, NQN ribbon, SU! Tab punch, PTI, Carolyn King for Gina K, self adhesice metal dots, Stamping Bella, dimensionals, party hat punch unknown, scrap yellow cs, silver gel pen, CHF daisy stamp, sponge, close to cocoa ink, creamy caramel ink, Copics, and Prismamarkers.
