Razzleberry Expressions

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going super! It's already Wednesday and that means that the weekend will be here soon! Hang on!! I did go into school yesterday to start getting my classroom set up. It's coming together nicely. I still need to get things up on the wall. I did a lot of cleaning yesterday and got the books out on the desks. Getting the classroom together will be the easy part (I think). It's all the paperwork stuff that I will need to have together before the first day that can get annoying. It seems that private schools all across the country are feeling the effects of the economy and ours is no exception! I only have 10 kids registered so far. While I am very excited about that, it's not good for the income of our school which depends solely on fundraising and paying families. We will see what happens as the school year begins.

Today's card is the third card we did at my stamp club on Monday night (you can see the second card here). I really liked this card! And I think the ladies did as well. I actually used a layout from the Holiday mini catalog for this card. This is a super simple card to do. I hope that you all can see the diamond pattern on the olive piece. That was done with the Big Shot and the texturz plate. I also used textured cardstock for this card. I hope that you are inspired as well! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
