School Owl

Here is another card I made this weekend. Is this not fun? I have 13 grandchildren and I am very blessed that 12 live within about 10 miles of us. This year we are having a "Cousin Back to School Bash" at our house on Sunday. The grand-kids are invited - their parents are not! The oldest is 11 and the youngest is 3. It is going to be fun with lots of lake time. Anyway----one of our grandsons, Hunter, lives too far away so I am sending him this card. He is starting Kindergarten in a few weeks. Oh - and if you have a minute - say a prayer for us (the grandparents) on Sunday!
This card is also for the TCM sketch challenge, I really liked this sketch! 

I really played around with this one because I wanted to personalize the card just for him. So I added a box and wrote his name in it. It was simple and a lot of fun. These new stamps from the last release were fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are always treasured!
God Bless,

What a delightful card! Love that little owl image and all the school related papers. Terrific design and I know Hunter is going to love getting this! You're going to love having that passel of grandkids on Sunday. :-) Wish mine lived that close. My closest are 200 miles away and the furthest are on the East Coast while I'm on the West. :-(
