OWH MWT - fall theme

Autumn... say it isn't so! The summer is flying by; school starts in less than 30 days. I need to finish school shopping... thank goodness for Catholic school uniforms, at least. (Yeah, retailers, I'm looking at you. Clothing for seven year olds should make them look like seven year olds, not teens. Thanks.)

Since this week's Operation Write Home challenge is to make fall cards, and I don't have much "fall" stamping stuff so I dug into my stash of "gotta use this up" baggies that just have a few pieces of random paper lines. This is Authentique, I do believe, what line exactly has escaped me. I wasn't all that keen on it. :)

It still made a nice card, though!

  1. This is perfect! Oh good ole school uniforms-- kinda miss wearing those to be honest :) So easy to set out clothes!

  2. cute CAS card, love the simpler days of summer, the hectic days of school will be here before you know it. Enjoy, kids grow up way too fast!

  3. Jen this is a great card, I love it! School has started here in Arizona already =(

    Thanks for playing in our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge!

  4. I like the dots in that patterned paper. I agree with you about the retailers trying to make kiddos look so much older than they are. My hubby is a Catholic school teacher and is getting ready to go back in a week. Hmmm, maybe they should make the teachers wear uniforms too! lol!

  5. Love your card and love the simple sentiment! I am not a fan of summer heat- but I do feel like this year is flying by! Uniforms- so much easier and I agree-- I want little kids to look like kids...not mini adults!

  6. The card is so cute, and I love your inspiration!

  7. Great idea for using up the 'not my favorite' paper! Well done!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
