CTO challenge

I love SplitcoastStampers! They have great, easy to read instructions on how to make so many different cards. I saw a Criss Cross Card that I wanted to make. So, I made a card for my sons new teacher who after two days,declares, "she is great." He is 4 and has had to go to two different schools in 3 months and he is adjusting great! He loves meeting new kids and already has some friends. As a working mom and one who has total separation anxiety, it makes me feel good that he likes his new school. (ok, its daycare but saying "school" makes me feel like I am not totally abandoning him!)I am entering this into the Celebrate The Occasion Back to School challenge.
Yesterday I got great news. I won stamps from Bug Bites 411!! Barb just started her own stamp line and I won her new set! I am totally psyched. I started following Bug Bites 411 a few months ago and I was lucky enough to be included in Barbs first blog hop, Chillin & Grillin. It was awesome. Barb is so amazing! I mean seriously, she has the most incredible crafting skills. Her cards blow me away! I love that she always includes her recipe. Being a newbie, I she make that??" I can read it on her blog and learn how! I wish her lots of success and I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of her new stamps! I will make something as soon as they come in and give a little review on how they are. If they are anything like Barb, then they will be incredible! Congrats again!! !
