A fitting theme for the week...

I'm doing my Saturday post a few hours early because I wanted to enter it on a challenge site and will be busy all day tomorrow.  The cue card over at CASology this week is so appropriate...

Since today was the first day of school, I wanted to make a card to remind my kids that I love them and am thinking of them as they head back to school.  I literally came up with and created this card in less than 10 minutes.  That is how simple it is!  I love doing cards like this that can be recreated so easily.  I used my grid paper and ruler to quickly draw in the lines to create the look of paper.  Since we don't have the spiral punch anymore, I used a hole punch to make the holes in the notebook paper and then cut into them with my paper snips and roughed up the edges a bit to make it look torn.  I think it came out looking pretty cute!
