This week at 2 Sisters the challenge is to recycle.  This is the pencil holder that I created out of a baby formula can for the desk in my office at church.

Back To School

Well, it's that time of year again. The kiddos have headed back for another year of school. My kids have been in school for almost a full 2 weeks now. My son started his sophomore year of high school and my daughter started 4th grade.  School is going really good. They both like their teachers and my son is having a blast in his computer science class that he is taking this year.

This week's challenge at 2 Sisters is to create a card/project with the theme of back to school.  The image I used on my card is Tilda With Bunch Of Roses from Magnolia Stamps. I recently won this stamp and thought this was the perfect time to ink it up.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew: Things With Wings

All Sorts: Butterflies
