ISS Back To School Blog Hop!




Hello Everyone,

It's time for another InStyle Stamps Blop Hop and this month's theme is "Back To School"! I realize that quite a few children have already returned to school but in my area, the kids return to school the day after Labor Day. However, I am ready...more than ready...for them to return. I miss my quiet mornings:)



My card features Janice and I also included a nugget tin for a gift. The nuggets were wrapped with matching DP and I simply made a bellyband to embellish the tin. My card is simply embellished with gems and a couple of die cuts from DCWV grade school paper stack.



Be sure to stop by and see all of the ISS DT back to school creations. The DT names are on my side bar. I also want to say that sadly this is my last blog hop with InStyle Stamps. I have had an awesome time working with such beautiful people and the experience is invaluable!

Have a great day and thanks so so much for stopping by!

Hugs

Risa

WOW!! Risa, this is awesome! The black gems behind the image are sooooo PERFECT!! What a great idea to include the tin of chocolates too! I'd love to have those in my lock in case of an emergency! :) Ya never know when you will NEED some chocolate!! You've definitely gone out with a bang! I'm really going to miss you on the team! But, it has been soooooooo nice to get to know you. I will definitely be back to visit often (at least as often as my schedule allows - Eeek, way too many assignments lately!) I'd love to have you as a guest designer on the Copic challenge blog sometime ... your Copic coloring always blows me away!! hugz, Mary
