tiddly inks challenge #62

I'm back from vacation and now prepping for the start of school. The craziness never ends. And as soon as my little one is settled into preschool I'll begin working again. My 7 y.o says that I must be so excited to go back to work...It is exciting but it is just more work on top of what I do already. **sigh** I won't be working 9 to 5. I will be working while the kids are in school and be there to pick them up and hang out with them at home. The wonderfulness of being self employed ; )

For the TI challenge, I thought that I would make a couple of note cards that I will be slipping into my 7 y.o.'s school bag at some point through the year. I love sending her notes in school.


The first one, "Whale to GO!!!" uses Whale Done found in the TI basement. I colored it with my Copics and added Stickles on the hearts. I popped it up on top of the background that I made with Twinkling H2O's and watercolor markers.

The Berry Sweet card uses the strawberry from Minnie Berry . I colored it with Copics and used stickles on the stem. Then I sprayed some shimmer over it. I popped this over my doodle background made with Twinkling H2O's and gesso.

Now I am off to make some dinner and figure out what to give my daughter's teacher for a 1st day of school present.

Have a great night!!

Thank you for your comment on my treat boxes! =D I love the die, too. Just to let you know, it is still available. Here's the link to the die on the Sizzix site, but I'm sure you could find it in other places (and possibly cheaper!).
