Back to School ...

Back to school is right around the corner for some of you.  But I'm done with all that, woooowhoooo!!  When my children were in school I did my best to always support and let there teachers know how much we appreciated them, especially my son, teehee. (ADHD, need I say more).  He put many a grey hair hairs in some heads.  I keep telling him "I can't wait til YOU have children!".

This set is perfect for letting those teachers know how much you appreciate them.  And you can start with a "Welcome Back" card.  Send it in with the LONG list of class supplies, you know, the kleenex, pencils, paper, I'm surprised they don't just put toilet paper on the list, teehee.

This one is from another new release from Mark's Finest Papers.  You can check this one out on 7/16.  There will be a blog hop with lots more idea's from their fabulous DT on this day!
Have I mentioned that they host fun challenges as well every Saturday HERE.


Stamp Set : Mark's Finest Papers  Apples and Camellia
Ink : VersaFine Onyx Black
Clear embossing powder on the title
DP : it's ancient, possible 10 years old, I love it when I use something from my stash!

Technique / Tip
My apple charm came gold.  You can customize it to match your card colors with your Copic Markers.  I used R29 and YG03 on my little apple charm.
