Back to School

For us, back to school is just around the corner. I always have mixed feelings about this time of year. Once again I’ll be saying goodbye to my daughter as she goes back to university. It’s been wonderful having her home for four months and I’ll miss her so much. It makes it much easier knowing that she’s excited to get back to continuing her education and settling into her new place.

This coming year will bring lots of changes. My son is moving out of town for a new job starting shortly. He’ll also be getting married in February. My little boys will be in grade 2 and grade 5 and my middle child, he’ll be in grade 12 finishing up his high school years. I’m getting a little dizzy just thinking about it all!

Because it is now back to school season, I thought I’d share this fun little card I created for the Maya Road booth at Summer CHA. While I love making feminine cards, it’s a nice change to make something a little more unisex. Just take off that flower and it’s definitely a more masculine design.

Now that I’ve been thinking on the imminence of back to school, I really need to get shopping. Perhaps some shoe shopping might by in order today.


Happy creating!

  1. Love this card, especially since it could be used as a masculine card.

  2. This is so cute! Love the owl!

  3. Cute card, Julie! I love the mix of elements on here. I hear you on the mixed feelings with the kids. I have one in college, one going into high school and one going into kindergarten. Sending my middle and youngest off to new schools is hard on this mama. So many mixed feelings. The world is so different today than when I sent my 24 yr old off to kindergarten and I am not too keen on that one.
