Ready for school

Almost time for kids to be heading back to school - here, it's right after the Labor Day weekend.   Others have already started (like Kentucky).  I discovered a paper pad that had the perfect background paper for this card and then yet another cut-out I had of the pile of books - woohoo!   A bit of help with my old red Sizzix for the numbers and letters, and I was set.   This Tilda is adorable with her newly sharpened pencils in hand.

This creation will be entered into the following:
