Back to School time!

 Cas-ual Friday this week challenged us to make 'Back to School' cards. All over blogging land there seems to be 'back to school' challenges. I am not a Mum and so had not really thought about entering any of these until I saw Laurie's card here (and at the bottom of this post). Laurie's card inspired me to play along-Mum or no Mum! Also her card reminded me how much I wanted to use my new PTI text stamp and thought I would combine this with the digi blackboard 'thank-you' from Create with TLC

And for a bit of background...from a little girl I always wanted to be a teacher and would play with my blackboard, calling the register for hours. And yep I did become a teacher but only lasted 2 years. My dream job was not what I had imagined from being that bossy little girl!

Dreams don't always work out but I managed to draw on my experience of writing on blackboards to come up with this card:

I will be entering this into the 'Back to School' challenges at Cas-Ual Friday
