Cards and Kindergarten Day 2!

So this was our second day of school and though I won't claim to be in any kind of routine yet, it was easier today that yesterday. Of course, it was only the boys and I to get ready since George had to go back to work today despite having a cold and being stuffed up. It's OK, because he was quite happy that they had training on the new Bobcat at work!

Anyway, Tracy came over just before we were headed up to school, so we walked with all the kids! Kyle took his backpack today for the first time and he was quite excited to be taking his hand-me-down (from my manager's son) SpongeBob backpack full of school supplies. When he got home he was a little upset that I'd left all the supplies at school!

When we went to pick Kyle up, I decided I'd better take the stroller since Sophia is a dawdler and it might take me forever to get there and back if she walks! She also managed to wipe out twice when she was walking when we took Kyle up there because she doesn't look where she's going! Much easier with the stroller!

This card was one I was playing with using some of the amazing goodies in my latest Scrapperie kit - Summer Camp. Had fun playing with my Threading Water border punch that I got from my friend Michele!

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket. Chipboard flower is Prima. Used the Fiskar's Threading Water punch along the bottom. Ink is Palette Noir Black.

This is the card I just did which is one of the featured ones on the Card Sketch a Day blog today! Susan sent me the sketch ahead of time and there's my card! Fun! Check it out and try some today!

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Lace Star Cardstock is KI Memories. Patterned paper is My Mind's Eye. Stamp is Rubber Soul. Ink is Palette Burnt Umber. Piercing done with a Tim Holtz Design Ruler (one of my favourite new tools!).

Well, don't think there's too much else happening here today! The kids are napping and Kyle and I are hanging out. It turned out to actually be another nice day and I'll take this as long as I can get it - my favourite time of year!
