Back To School!

Hi Everyone!!!! It has been a crazy week!!!! it started off with Tim not working his second job all week, so we went bike riding every single day...we did so many miles in one day that I came home and passed out, I was so freakin tired! my rolly polly body didn't like it one bit..to top it off I pull Rocks behind me in his bike stroller..(he loves it!!!) ..so that's an added 65lbs of dog and stroller on these poor donut filled thighs I have..LOL!.but I did it again the next day and the next...but on Friday I did nothing but cook because we had a bday party for Cordell at the park where we live...so I cooked everything from Appetizers, Side Dishes, Desserts and Tim barbecued the main stuff..So all day Friday and all morning Saturday it was nothing but chaos of food everywhere..So I have not had one spare moment to give to my blog which is to bad because I made this card to go into a lot of challenges but the biggest one I missed was a tryout for the guest DT spot with The Greeting Farm..I am so bummed but there's nothing I can do about it...BUT I am trying to get ready for my card class in a few weeks and I am so excited, I have people RSVPing to come with two to three extra friends..I hope everyone likes what they will be making.. Nerve Racking :)...And the new Tastefully Simple catalog comes out on Wednesday and the new Fall/Winter stuff looks and tastes so amazing, so I have been asking friends to have parties for me to help me out..
OK enough about my crazy week and now back to the good stuff :) ..my card was made using the sketch from The Sweet Stop..and I also did the challenge for Stamp Something
they asked us for Back To School..and you will see on my card I used a pencil button that I adhered to the Prima flower...I also used the schoolgirl from The Greeting Farm...I did another challenge and it is for Papertake Weekly Challenge
They had a recipe challenge 3,2,1..I think I hit those requirements I used 3 different types of paper from Basic Grey (Olivia) and Basics White..with 2 little pearls from Recollections by the image and one pencil button...I did use CTMH white buttons but stuck the pink pearls on top..I did paper piece her outfit...I really liked this card and I hope you do too :) ..I think that's it but I will be back every single day this week to make up for being gone all last week ...
Thank You!!!! Come Again!!!
