1st Day at School!

Hi All,
Hope you're all good this evening and have had a fantastic bank holiday weekend? Hard to believe that our next one is.....Christmas!! OMG, where has 2010 gone? And talking of time flying by my card tonight is along that theme as it's a Good Luck for your 1st Day of School card which I've made for my Niece Maisy (yes the same Maisy who turned 4 only two weeks ago!) and another for my God Daughter. Both girls are starting school next week and I can not believe how quickly that has come around!! They're both too ickle!!
So here's their cards, simple and cute on Craftwork Cards 5 x 5 inch cards...
Close up of Lili of the Valley's Back to School Girl stamp, coloured with my Copics and Derwent Coloursoft pencils...

This is Isabelle's card, same as Maisy's but with brown hair (just like hers!)

Told you they were simple, kind of like notelet cards. The polka dot paper is from Wild Rose Studio Polka Dot paper stack and is layered on Core d'inations Gem Stone backing card, I've used my Nesties, X-Cut Retro Flowers punches, Button Brads are by Making Memories, Pearl Gems are from The Glitter Pot and I've added Glamour Dust for extra sparkle. The Good Luck sentiment was computer generated.
I'm entering this card into 2 challenges this week:
Papertake Weekly Challenge - It's Recipe Time, 3-2-1. So it's 3 of one thing, 2 of another and 1 of another. I've used 3 pearl gems, 2 flowers and 1 stamped image.
That's it from me tonight, I've had a lovely extra long weekend but it's back to work tomorrow, groan, so time to hit the hay!
See you all soon,
Lots of love
