TMS 111

Good Morning! I am back from vacation. Still can't believe we actually got to go after an earthquake and a hurricane the week we were to leave, but we made it to the Outer Banks of North Caroline a day late and had a blast! Now it is back to school for the boys and back to work for me. I am starting back to work after being a stay at home mom for nine years. Luckily I am easing back into it part-time and working as a teacher's aide in my friend's pre-school class.

Today's sketch is from Kathy and our sponsor this week is Whimsie Doodles. I just love the stamp that they supplied for us this month! The cute little school boy is just right for a mom of boys. This week is also a judged challenge with the extra challenge of Inside/Outside. So be sure to add something special to the inside of your card as well.
I pulled out my Schoolhouse paper pack from October Afternoon and set to work. I used the Notebook Edge Die-namic, as well as the Retro Flower Die-namic. Now I know the challenge was Inside/Outside and I promise I did finish the inside. However, it is next to impossible to photograph the inside of a card on black cardstock with out getting a glare. None of the pictures I took came out, but I will tell you what is inside. Inside at the bottom is the card is a scallop border with the red DP from the front of the card and a tab on top that says "You're A Class Act."
That's it for me today. Be sure to check out the other DT members blogs for more TMS goodness!

Happy getting back to work. How wonderful that you've been able to stay home with your boys for 9 years.
