Happy First Day of PreSchool

So today, I was able to get into my craft room for a card making session!! I made 2 cards for my granddaughters who both start pre-school in a few days!!

This is my first card:


Kraft card base, a scrap of school themed paper cut into a triangle and a chalkboard die cut went into the making of this card!! I also used a small piece of Doodlebug Design’s Apple A Day washi tapeUsed a white pen to write on the chalkboard and a marker to put her name on it!!

I am linking this card up to these challenges:

Tuesday Morning Sketches – Sketch # 313

TMS #313

I don’t have a way to cut out an oval so I used this chalkboard diecut in the oval’s place!!

Crafty Creations Challenges# 295 Chalkboard

And here is my second card:


This card was also made with a kraft card base and red cardstock, die cut circles, Doodlebug Design‘s Tape Measure washi tape and school icons from SU! sets (old ones)!! Letters are from various dollar store abc stamp sets I had!!

I am linking this card up to these challenges:

    These are so precious, Taunya! I adore the school themed elements you used on each of them, especially the chalkboard. I came across chalkboard tags at Target the other day and was tempted to buy them to use on teacher thank you cards. First I have to find a good white pen. The ones I have (and used to love) seem to have a habit of drying up.

    Two adorable cards for two darling granddaughters! How fun that two sweet girls are both starting pre-school. This is such a fun age. They’re like little sponges, ready to soak up all that learning. Hope they both have a school year filled with wonderment.

    First day of pre-school for your granddaughters and soon, first day of kindergarten for my niece! How did the time from ‘babies’ to now fly so quickly! Exciting times ahead – for them and for us! I’m kind of envious that Ms. T’s teachers will have sooooo much time with her, but…that’s how it goes. Looking forward to watching her learn and blossom even more, as I know you are with your ‘littles.’ Your cards: just so adorable and infused with such a deep love! They will adore them immensely, as do I!
