back to school

Hello! I made this card for the 2 Sketches for You challenge using Torendi products!As usual, I turned it 90 degrees! One day I will properly follow a sketch! haha!

This OPP tape is the coolest thing! It kind of comes like packing tape, but it is so much more! What I did here was tape it too some white card stock. I wrapped the tape around the back edges. Then I popped it up on some black card stock and used some letter stickers to spell my sentiment. I also used this Jillibean Soup paper from the Modern Red kit. It is so cute!

In a few hours a moving van is coming to move all of our furniture, etc. to Orange County. We are SO not ready, and all I want to do is sleep! Eeeep! I am also super nervous about moving. I moved A LOT when I was a kid, and it makes me not a fan of boxes or moving trucks. I will just be happy to have it over with! And, hey, by moving, I am only 20 minutes away from CHA now!

Wish us luck!
