First Day at School

Good morning. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend -  I know I did - Lola Arizona was here on Saturday, we went for a lovely walk along the canal in the afternoon , we had a lovely family meal in the evening and the sun was shining what more could anyone ask for!!

So it's a bright and early start for me today - Oliver is coming again this morning as his Mummy is working an extra day this week :o)

I made this card for the little girl that lives a few doors away as she started school this week. I remember when the family moved in and she wasn't even born yet - oh how time flies!!!


This sweet image is from Digistamp Boutique - 'Off to School Ava' - available here
Coloured with PM's and FM's
I used a corner rounder on two opposite corners of the image panel and also inked the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink
