Back to School!

Today I would like to share a school themed card that was inspired by the "Back to School" challenge at Wee Memories. My little one is in her pre-school and loves to recite ABCs and 123s as often as she can:) A couple of days back, she was reciting the numbers and she knew upto 20. When she finished off with 20, I continued the sequence with 21 and to my surprise she took the clue and came up with 22,23..upto 29 and then she stopped..She couldn't think of what would come after 29! and gave us a "whatz next?" look:)..These sweet little moments really make us smile and be happy and proud of her!..

Coming back to the card, I love to gift people and teachers were no exception. When I was in school, I would appreciate them in whatever way I could..be it with flowers,chocolates,greeting cards..Only thing I missed doing was gifting handmade cards which I wasn't aware of how to make them then..I would like to make up for it thro' my daughter and lead her along the way..

I usually do not blog much except for a few details about the card, but this post has had me pour out my feelings!!!..is it because I was missing my School deep down!..yeah we all do!..guess, everyone reaches that part and life has to go on!. ok.enough of my ramblings and here is my simple card.

I love the polaroid stamp from Lawn Fawn, but I do not own one..I wanted to give a blackboard look to the card and used my own version of the polaroid for the same:)
