School or Bust!

Hi everyone! Wow! I have not blogged in a week! That's because I've spent a very busy week at school getting ready for the kids to return on Monday. I am probably a lot more excited about school starting back than they they. I am pretty sure I have everything ready to go for the first day! At least, I hope I do! It was a lot of hard work, but I'm looking forward to a great and successful year.

Since school is starting, I wanted to make a school-themed card using this cute new set called School or Bust by Deedee's Digis. I colored the image in with Copic markers and even added some glossy accents to the window glass. I cut out the image and the sentiment with Nestabilities. The papers are October Afternoon Report Card; I had to keep the school theme! I stitched all around the edges and finished it off with four yellow brads to match the school bus, as well as a yellow bow.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)
