S2G Challenge #68 Back To School

Hello Everyone,

So now you would think that after being a guest designer that my first card back into the challenges would have a S2G stamp.  And normaly it would (you can hear the but coming, can't you?)
 When I got home from San Diego I came bearing gifts from Uncle Nick for the little ones.  While Ethan & I were going over his bag he stoped & in a small little voice he said"Can you make Uncle Nick a card that goes in a envelope & Thank him for my bag?"  That just melted my heart!!!!  This coming from a 4yr. old who hadn't even finished checking out his gift!
This is what Ethan decitated to me!
Ethan & Stella needed help with their names,but Collin did his.  This is the only part that the other 2 had in the card.

So Thanks to S2G Challenges being open (That's A Big Thank You Ladies!) This seemed to be the perfect chance to show off what my little helper & I came up with. We have the color red in there & as for the Back To School, I'm sure Collin will have to take his bag at least 1 time with him.  The other 2 aren't ready for school yet.
 I felt kind of bad about sharing Ethan's card with the other two since he came up with it all on his own but he was ok with it.
 Thank goodness since I had to do it Now!!!! Auntie Bev!!!  That I didn't have to make one for each of them to send. 
 I emailed it to Uncle Nick since I'm headed back to San Diego in a couple of days. 
(That's a secreat because it was to be put into a envelope & mailed. ) But I will give it to him when I get there.  Sorry about the long post.  But it was such a sweet story to go along with the making of the card.  I couldn't help it.
Thank You for stopping by for a visit & considering my entry. Promiss next entry I will use a S2G stamp.


  1. Sweet post...I enjoyed reading the little story! Aren't children so precious when they want to do such sweet things that you don't realize they even would think of? Gotta love em! It's a sweet card! I know Uncle Nick will treasure it!

  2. I think that you'll be forgiven for not using an S2G stamp this time because it's so cute and fits the challenge perfectly. I think your son is a doll for thinking that up.
    it's great having you hang out with us at S2G.

  3. What a sweet sweet story! Love the elements on your card, with the references to back to school without being over the top. Great use of cosmo paper and love the paper clip!
