Rejoice in all things.

Hello my friends!! I hope you all had a great weekend. I have been super busy, but hopefully things start slowing down a bit. Today DD started Kindergarten!! She is so excited about the new school year. Today we did a little bit of "refreshment", LOL. She, sometimes, likes to write the numbers facing the opposite direction, so we practiced that and also the ABC's. I am still waiting for my curriculum, so as soon its arrive, we will work on that.
After school time, I had some stamping time!! ahhh feels really good. I have played few challenges, so here is a card I made for Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16 : Orange/Gold, Chocolate, Cream and Kraft. Very nice Fall colors. For my card I used 2 sets from smARTworks: The shapes are from FRM-02 Trio and the Sentiment is from Frames Set.
I stamped the circles in Chocolate Chip Craft and then heat embossed with clear ep, the squares were stamped in Crushed Curry twice. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Brown. I sponged the borders with Crushed Curry. My base card is Kraft CS. I added 3 Gold Rhinestones on the corner. The ribbon is Kraft from Close to My Heart.

Card recipe:
Card Stock: Kraft, Cream.
Stamps: FRM-02 Trio & Frames by smARTworks.
Ink: Crushed Curry, Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip Craft.
Embellishments: Kraft Ribbon (CTMH), Gold Rhinestones (Kaiser Crafts)

I hope you like it.
