Off to School I Go....

Today marks the official end to summer........at least for me! I start school today, it is cool, and rainy outside. I am actually ready to go back, meet my new students, and get back into a routine again. Brian and I finished painting my room yesterday. It is really, really pink. Lots of pink. But my walls are bare and by the time all the things get hung back up and decorated it is going to look great! My MIL bought me a chandelier for my early birthday present, and Brian is going to hang that up today while I'm at school. : )

On to my card.....these are a couple of cards I created using JustRite's Thinking of You set. This is such a great set to color! I colored both images in with my Copics. I used Flower Soft on one of them and glitter on the other.


There is some embossing and satin ribbon on both. I distressed the edges a bit with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Guess, I better get a move on......time to get the 7th grader up and get myself ready for today!
Have a WONDERFUL day! : )
