Moms, Let’s Celebrate

There is still time to play with the current “Back to School” challenge over at Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.  I may have strayed a little bit from the nature of this challenge, but for me, this is what back to school time feels like to me after a long summer at home with the kiddos.

This challenge Newton’s Nook is sponsoring our challenge, and providing a generous prize for one of our random participants.  I pulled out my Cocktail Mixer stamp set (and I know what you are saying, cocktails and going back to school have nothing in common, but I say for the slew of mother’s who have been home all summer, there is a coralation).

EK Gorman, CIC451 reminder aSo sometimes, I like to think that I can do brush lettering.  It usually doesn’t take long for me to realize that I am not actually capable of creating lovely brushed letters, but apparently I didn’t realize it quick enough for this card.  However, there wasn’t a stamp that said what I wanted, so I figured I would just write out what I wanted to say…so for a moment forgive my bad hand writing.  Just enjoy the sentiment.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with for this challenge.  Till then Happy Crafting!
