Sweet Sunday Sketch #132

Well, hi there! I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I blogged! I haven't taken that long of a break in quite some time. I have to wonder if anyone even noticed I was gone? ha! We've been trying to get into a groove with school and work schedules and figuring out the whole drop-off and pick-up thing and I'm still adjusting to this 5 days a week of school. I'm used to having my little man around quite a bit more often - but at the same time having longer hours of alone time a few times a week when he'd hang out with my Mom in Kihei, which is where his preschool was. I'm definitely missing that!! His elementary school is just a couple of blocks from our house so he's not getting to see Tutu (my Mom) as much. We're all feeling the shock and adjustment of that! LOL. On top of the adjustments and my tennis elbow (which is slowly getting better thanks to some PT treatments I've bribed my co-worker into providing as it's just too hard to do PT on yourself and trying to coach your husband into doing manual therapy and joint mobilizations on a hypomobile radial head just doesn't really work very well, but I digress), anyway we also all got sick last week, which I'm blaming on a whole new set of little germs. Oh well. Immune System Strengthening, what doesn't kill us, and all that blah blah blah!

Anyway, it's Sunday and that means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. It's a fun one this week:


As usual, I decided to go hybrid again this week and created a Teacher Thank You card to have in my stash. We'll probably use it in a few weeks when we go to Open House.


Those awesome patterned papers and fun school-themed embellishments are all printed digi goodies from the School Daze kit by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe). I also used the School Time stamp set from PTI for the sentiment. Super quick and easy!

Be sure to stop by all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with this week's sketch.
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!

Super cute, Jen! Do you even know how jealous I am that your little man can go to kindergarten 5 days a week, all day??!! We have part-time kindergarten and the schedule is really weird. Our boys in school - how fun! Love your card and it's so perfect for school. Can't wait to see all the school gift projects you do this year! I totally case your ideas ;)

Super cute card, gets me in the mood for school. My daughter is going to preschool next week and is so excited, so when she saw this card she said, "awww, mom can you make that? I want to give it to my teacher when I go to school." She has good taste!
