"Apples and the Fist Day of School"

Hello My Crafty Friends,
Today, my baby starts 1st grade and he's nervous!! I decided to make him a little card to tell him how much I LOVE him and to put a smile on his adorable face:) I made a small card for him and a larger one for his teacher. You guys are going to gasp... ready?  OK, so I used my Cricut & Gypsy to create these adorable cards from the DoodleCharm Cartridge!! I got inspired to create these cards from my friend Dorcas over at Crafty Card Angel thanks Dorcas for the inspiration!! I was able to incorporate my supplies from Stampin' Up! of course, LOL!! I also made him an altered notebook and ruler{I will share later or tomorrow}, I know he will be very excited:)  I will also share pictures of his first day of school later:) Aww a little emotional only because I see my baby growing up so fast!! Thank you for visiting and until next time, Enjoy!!
