Peachy Keen Challenge 13::9 Just Cards:: Oh My stars

Good afternoon hope every one is having a wonderful day today! Last night the storm FINALLY hit us. Woke up to 9 to 11 inches of snow! No school for my little man and no work for me!! YEAH!! Thank goodness its melting fast ~ LOVE March snowfalls ~ they don't stay around long! Come on Spring ~ I need sunshine and warmth!

Anyhow after hanging out with my little man this morning I carved in some time to play along this weeks challenge over at Peachy Keen Challenge. I so miss playing along but family and work comes first. This week we were asked to just make cards and include stars on the card! So I looked through my PKS stash and came across the stamp set PKSC -08 August 2012 . This week I saw my son's teacher and another teacher ( she sees him sometimes at recess) and they both had the nicest compliments about him! I just ADORE his school and the awesome people/staff that treat our children with so much love! I couldn't let this go by without telling him congratulations on being such a good boy! We are very proud of him!

With all that said, I heat embossed the school house from this stamp set in the background. Used this CUTE little tablet paper stamp and a face for my star from this stamp set. All school related! My stars are from my stash ~ I seem to have a ton of things I seem to cut out but don't use ~ so using my scraps right now are what I am about. So I have no clue what cartridge these are from. But I do know that my little tiny stars are from Emma's, over at My Creative Time, new release. So are those ADORABLE scissors! I just paper pieced them so the handle was black and the actual sheers were shiny silver. I will list all materials below.

Well I am off to clean my work space up and now prepare my third and final meal for the day! UGH! So nice to have them home but I am constantly getting snacks and cleaning up dishes when he is home!
