Kitty and Hermione Back to School Cards

The Back to School cards are delivered so here is the big reveal: -

I welded the shadow layer of each character to the basic card base for stability before adding the character.  I glued the 'back to school' sentiment in front of the character.  Hermione has SO many layers that I had to pop up the sentiment on foam dots.   Hello Kitty was much easier to complete!

I added an Applebees gift card inside the cards for an after-school treat.     Love ya S and G!   Hope you have a wonderful Back to School experience.   Thanks for visiting with me today. : )  Grandma Christine

Back To School Word Shaped Card

It's THAT time of year again when the garden vegetables decide to reach their peak of ripeness - all at the same time!  Thankfully, I did the last of the peas and beans yesterday, and I started on the carrots today, as you can see by my orange hands.  : (  

I didn't even realize that September was here until the "Back To School" challenge at BBTB2 appeared on my dashboard.  Ooops!   I needed cards ASAP and in desperation went with the old standby, a shaped word card, that I could personalize for the DGDs.

So, here's the generic version featuring a book carrying bird from the '3 Birds on Parade' cart and the phrase, LOL, comes from the "Back to School layout" from the 'Family Album' cart.  I cut the welded shadow twice so that I could line the interior of the card with some old, old, paper from DCWV .

I will post S's Hermione version and G's Kitty version after they've been delivered!

I am of course, linking my card to the BBTB2 challenge here.  Go see who else used the 'Family Album' cart!   So many different projects from this cart, and it's no wonder that it's one of my 'go to' carts.    Thanks for visiting today.  Off to visit / inspect the new house and see if all the siding is on!   : )  Christine

Back to School Treats

We had a lovely week up in British Columbia camping at the Brae Island resort.  It was only marred by the knowledge that this will probably be the last trip for our grand old border collie, Sam.  : (  Much as he loves all the extra attention he gets from the other campers, he was glad to be home, off the leash, and sleeping on his own soft bed.

As anyone with a garden knows, the veggies don't stop growing just because you are on vacation and we came home to zucchinis, green beans and peas demanding to be picked and packed away in the freezer!

In between loads of laundry, I started work on the Back to School treats for the shelter children at OHM.   My DGDs are cramming the last weeks of 'freedom' full of activities and I am so glad NOT to have the stress of getting my classroom ready, although I still miss teaching Kindy every day.

This simple little school house box comes from SVG Cuts and I added an apple brad to the center of the stamp from MCT for added interest.  (And, truthfully, I've had them forever and not ever used them!)

Thanks for visiting with me today.
