Book Ants

Good Thursday morning friends!  As you know today is fair/rodeo week in my town and with that it means that school starts next week.  Eek!  Next week!  I have to finish those back to school gifts for the teachers!  Anyway, Kyler has an orientation day on Wednesday and then on Thursday is the first day of school.  I'm excited and nervous (kinda like him I'm sure) all at one time for the new year.

Since I am a card maker I thought maybe it would be nice to make him a card for the first day of school...I'll probably put it at his breakfast spot on Thursday.  I just had to use the super cute Book Ants image and sentiment from Doodle Pantry for his card this year.  It is getting harder and harder to find images (digi) that are good for a teenager that aren't emu, skulls, or tats.  I just want clean cut, video game playin', hangin' out type of images.  Anyway, I paired this image with the School Time Digi Paper Pack.  I have grown to love it when a set comes with or has separately the perfect papers! 
Here is too a wonderful new school year to all children that are headed back this week and next!

I do have a little exciting news for ya.  Yesterday I told you that I was done on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team well...after I had already posted that Korin asked me to be a part of The Sweet Stop sketch team so I am now a Sugar Baby!   I absolutely love the sketches at The Sweet Stop and the fact that you can use any images not just SNSS images so make sure you go check that out too, k?!

Thought for the day: "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds."  Hebrews 10:24  How can you spur someone onto love and good deeds today?

PS:  If my post looks a little funky for the next couple of days, forgive me.  I'm trying to get used to the new blogger template.

Lorie, Love these ants and the cute books they are carting off - I hope they plan to read them.I found a trail of ants in my high school class room this week but I don't think they were there for the books. Adorable papers too! Elizabeth (Guest D. on Doodle Pantry this month - yeah!)

Sharon Basel said...

Terrific card Lorie. I agree it's hard to find good wholesome images for the teenage set. This works wonderfully for that and i love how you used the digi papers.

Hugs,
Sharon :)
