You should have come from Karen's Blog and after your visit, you should go to Julie's Blog but, you get lost, just be sure to come right back to our BEST CREATION BLOG page!

Since it's all about stitching today, I wanted to share with you the back to school cards I made for my kids.  Unfortuntely, their first day of school is also MY first day of school with students, so I'm not usually there to put them on the bus and smother them in hugs and kisses.  So, I started making them cards a few years ago that my husband gives them at the bus stop so they know that they are in my heart, even though I'm not standing there with them.

On Elizabeth's card, I simply used some lime green zig zag stitching to add some dimension and interest to the lime green strip of paper.




And, on Colby's card, I used the stitching to create a border around the patterned paper (to take the place of matting) and also to make some exhaust coming from the bus!

I hope you enjoyed these cards made with Best Creation's Back 2 School collection!  Now, hop on over to JULIE's BLOG for your next stop...of and just in case you'd like to win the Hello Fall Collection, one of your secret words is PUMPKIN!

Thanks for stopping by today!
