Late Blogger's Challenge...

The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist. -Maria Montessori
I was Supposed to post a Blogger's Challenge card on Friday but my camera batteries died and then all weekend I have been getting stuff ready for school, so I am so sorry this is late! I hope I don't get whipped with a wet noodle by the BC Mom! :D This week's Challenge was a Sketch (my very favorite kind of challenge!)

Today is my son's first day of First Grade...I am So proud of him, he is smart, kind and wonderfully generous. I know he will excel in his schoolwork and be a truly wonderful student, but I am saddened that his Baby days are so far gone...he is a Big Boy these days!

OK, enough sniveling, on to the card!

I pulled out a sweet little image my friend sent me (Thanks Tammi!) and some Earth Love paper. I colored with Copics being careful tto stay away from anything too bright...the Earth Love paper is So cool, but the colors are so different from my Norm!

The inside is pretty simple again...I added a little strip of paper to the left side to cover the ribbon end and help keep it stuck down...

Stamps: Bumble Bee (Gorjuss Girls by Sugar Nellie,) Swirly Greetings (Elzybells)
Paper: Earth Love (Cosmo Cricket,) Willow CS (Memory Box)
Ink: Copic Markers, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Misc: Crystal Stickles, Taffeta Ribbon, White Gel Pen, Adhesive Foam

Thanks for stopping by!
