My little darlings are headed back to school in the coming days, and like most kids they have mixed feelings about it starting.  Let’s face it, they go to school like we go to work…we have to do it, we try to enjoy it as much as possible, but we would all rather do something else.  I love my day job (usually), but if I had my way I’d go to work Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 3pm.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t pay the bills!  Haha!

This card is intended to be a bit of encouragement for my kiddos as they head back to school.  Whatever the challenge, they are great kids and are prepared for the work – You’ve got this!

It’s fairly easy to see how the books and floor were created, but what about that chalkboard?  Well, it is created from the Hearth & Home thinlits dies, cutting out the panes as well as the flare on the top and bottom of the window.  The window was then turned horizontally and the hearth placed at the bottom to form the base.  The chalk is from the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch – it is the center cutout that is usually tossed when creating a tag.  I didn’t even cut off the dip in the center of the chalk.  Instead I used that as the support to adhere the piece to the chalkboard base.
