Are You Ready?

It's time to head....

We live less than a block from an elementary school... so even though my children are grown, I have many opportunities to watch the back to school activity.

Children walking by with backpacks hanging from a shoulder; school buses turning into the school parking lot; I can even hear the bells ringing when it's time for the school day to start.

So, I think the new challenge at MelonHeadz Friends is PERFECT!

August 18 - 31

Theme: Back to School

I actually made two cards for this challenge, using two different sets from MelonHeadz Illustrating.

Here's my first card:

  1. Perfect back to school card and that is a fabulous font on the sentiment!

  2. Isn't it fun living near a school - we also have that privilege and I enjoy watching the children come and go past our place.
    Wonderful cards Jeanette.

  3. Jeannette, your cards are beautiful. Great papers and coloring. Fantastic!

  4. You are so lucky to see all the cuties on the way to school! I have a bus stop outside my office window and they slay me with those backpacks the size of their entire torso!

    both cards are too cute. I really like the interior of the first card. Looks very professional, my friend!
