Thank You Card ~ School Theme

Hi bloggy friends!
The first few weeks are busy ones for us in the biz. School biz that is.
For a lot of you summers are busy, busy, busy with your kiddos and crafting time is limited.
The school year is the time my crafting time is the most limited.
The weekends are so short. lol.
I snuck in a little crafting time this morning before we head out to spend the day with one of my brothers.
I have wanted to play along with this Mojo Monday sketch and all the other challenges I play along with all week but honestly I have just been too exhausted by the time I make it home from work.
Teaching is the BEST job in the world but after enjoying a nice slow paced summer getting back into the routine takes my ol' body a little getting used to.
Today I created another school themed thank you card.
We have a lot of wonderful parent volunteers at our school and the PTC has already planned three yummy staff appreciation luncheons for us to look forward to (fall, winter and spring) so thank you cards come in real handy.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Sentiment is from the Salutations stamp set from  Penny Black.
*Banners are from the Flag It Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Design paper from the Recollections Back to School pack.
*Circle punch from Marvy.
*Scissors and paint brush from my Cricut cut stash.
May your day always be filled with love.

Please join me and play along with these terrific challenges!
