Unscripted Sketches and ColourQ back to school card

Yes, it is hump day stamping friends. STRESS to the MAX for me and about the only good thing was meeting a new stamping friend in town today. I dropped off catalogs to her. What a sweetheart she is. Then I went to work and was mailing something and one of my coworkers must have noticed that I wasn't my chipper self and asked me what was wrong. I lost it and started crying. I really wear my heart on my sleeve I guess. When my boss saw me she told me to go home and have a relaxing night. It is all about my house in MN. Anyway, I had decided I needed to stop at the grocery store before I got home and reached in my purse and my debit card was at home on the table. GRRRR! I asked if she would take a MN check and she said no. I was ready to tell her to never mind I couldn't pay when this angel behind me offered to pay for my groceries. I turned around and asked if I could get her name and number and she said she was just paying it forward. I broke out in tears as I told them I had such a stressful day that that was the nicest thing anyone could do for me right then. SO sweet.  

Okay so about the card. The guy I clean for has little boys and the youngest is going to be starting school this year. Well, they look for me when I get there and try to tickle me when I get in the door.  They call me the "Tickle Monster"and I call them the "Tickle Ninja's". They are fun. I decided to use up some of my old DSP's and to make a card for them. So this is last year's Storytime Designer Series Paper.  Oh and did you notice my darling envelope. Yes, you can get the Envelope Liners in the Holiday Catalog and yes they are the coolest.

I used the layout for the Unscripted Sketches and used to ColourQ colors. I didn't have the right read so I used this DSP which is Riding Hood Red that is also retired. My base is the Basic Gray and I took a second layer that I textured with the Alphabet Press Texture Folder and then textured with the same folder a piece of Daffodil Delight that I had punched with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. I used the  I used the Oval Collection Framelits and the 2-1/2" Circle Punch  to cut out the DSP. Then I used Best Wishes from the retired set Wishes Your Way. The colors aren't exactly correct nor the layout but that is the best I could do today. LOL! 

Shoot me an email if you have any ?? as how I made my card but it is pretty self explanatory I think.  I am exhausted mentallyso I think I will retire to bed. .  
Have a great night my friends and make sure you stop by these links to check out all the cards:   and

Hugs, Bev
