First Day of School – Cards for Lucas and Teacher

Tough day… My baby…. My boy… My only child…. Started Kindergarden today…… I sit home, alone, wondering where the time went…. Seems like yesterday I was bringing him home from the hospital. Puts things in perspective. Life is precious. Live it. Because it goes by in the blink of an eye.

I made this card so I can put it in his lunchbox and surprise him at lunch…  The sky and grass were made with Faber Castell Gelatos… I masked off the road area and used one of the images from Lawn Fawn’s Schoolhouse Backdrops to create the road.  I shrunk a pic of my little boy’s face and put it on one of the bus windows….  Love that boy and will miss him terribly….. Tears are filling as I type this post. I am submitting this card to the Moxie Fab Felt Challenge.

I made this teacher’s card last year. Finally. I get to use it.
And I needed to come up with a quick and easy idea for the teacher gift.. Very thankful I found Anders Ruff Custom Designs  while visiting The Twinery’s blog hop. This is a tomato can turned pencil holder.. The design is a free printable they offered… HELLO! LOVE! Only thing I did AFTER I took this picture was add some glossy accents to the apple for some shine!! Inside the card contains a sheet of the teacher labels (again offered free by Anders Ruff Custom Designs) and a gift card…. No, the card and gift don’t necessarily match as a set, but that’s ok. I don’t like to always be matchy matchy!

  2. Great projects! I’m sure Lucas will love his surprise card in this lunch. Today might be hard but I’m sure it will get better…just look forward to when he gets to come home and tell you all he learned today!

  3. What an adorable card for Lucas and a great teacher’s gift! I remember that first day my oldest son left for school, and I remember the first day my youngest left, too. Sad. I’m thinking of you today. Craft! It will make the day pass quicker. ;o)
