Fungus can be cute!

I cannot believe that the summer is almost over and it's almost time for another school year!!!  I see the school buses out, and all the back to school sale flyers are filling my mailbox.  We've got our backpacks, lunch boxes and school supplies in order.  My oldest is entering 7th grade (when did that happen?!) and my babies are going into Kindergarten (woot, woot!).

My card today is for my oldest sweetie.  She's not a humungo fan of Science and when I got this sentiment from Paulette at TLC, immediately I thought of her, and had to make her a card for her first day of school to wish her well and give her a little chuckle at the same time.

The sentiment from TLC is included in a new set called Ready To Learn, which you can find by clicking here.  I took this adorable little girl from Bugaboo Stamps and merged her with this awesome mushroom freebie from Stamp Fairy to create the scene.  The bumps on the smaller mushroom were hand doodled with my Copic Multi-Liner.

My daughter caught me coloring her up (which was sooo much fun!) and absolutely loved the two images together, not realizing that I would be making a card for her with it.  I can't wait to see her face when I give it to her!!
