Smelling Something

     Hello everyone! Today is my daughters first day at Public school and i'm a nervous wreck. She has been at a private little school in Greencastle for 7 years counting Pre-kindergarten and now she's riding the bus to Middle school. I have to admit that i did cry this morning when she got on her bus. My husband and son thought that i was CRAZY, but i don't care! I still worry about her. I'll be very excited to hear about her first day.
     I did make a card today with a cute little skunk on it from Meljens designs. I just bought this sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder yesterday.  I colored the image with Copic Markers.

  1. Hi Deonna,
    Your card is very sweet, thankyou for sharing it with us at CraftyCatz this week.

    I do hope your Daughters first day was a pleasant one, I remember crying when mine started high school, oh it's so scary, maybe it's just a women thing, you never stop feeling that way...fingers crossed for her anyway.xxx

  2. Aww this is So sweet Deonna! Love the colour combo and gorgeous bow and flower!

    Hope your daughter goes on okay at School - hopefully she'll settle in soon! It's a big step for you and her!
    Take care!
    Sue xx

  5. What a darling card, Deonna! I really like your layout, and how the pink and black squares play off the colors in the image. Thanks for sharing with us at Tuesday Throwdown! Praying your daughter had a good first day of school! I don't think we moms ever stop worrying about our "babies." :-)
