Back to School

**If you are looking for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ post for this week, please scroll down!**

Yes it is back to school in our neck of the woods. I try to make some back to school cards for my grandchildren but just am running out of time! I report back to work on Friday, my teacher vacation is almost over. This is going to seriously cramp my stamping time! Um - honey - can I retire yet???

This card is for several challenges.The challenges are listed below. I saw many other blogs do it this way and looked much easier to do it that way.

I saw the book-bag paper pieced on Melanie's website (just scroll down a bit) and had to try it. I cut the entire book-bag out and popped it up. There was no coloring on this one. The paper is from October Afternoon and the striped paper is from DCWV.

Thanks for stopping by - I really appreciate all of your comments!

I loved this so much that I had to try my hand at one for my grandson. Isaiah has very mild autism but changes are difficult for him. He's starting at a brand new school on Monday and I wanted to do something special for him.
Here's the link to my card:
