Back to School Encouragement card

It is back to school time, or nearly, in most parts of the USA.   This brings up many happy memories of freshly sharpened pencils, but is also a time of great angst and worry for many kids. School is much more stressful for my kids than it was for me, so I thought this sentiment would work well to encourage kids going off to school.

Supplies: Gina K Designs Art from the Heart and You're My Favorite stamp sets, Memento ink, Alcohol markers, My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart paper pad

I would love to participate in the following challenge:

You're My Favorite was a mini set in red rubber. I think it was one of 4 mini sets in a Stamp TV kit several falls ago. It also has a few flower stems in it.

Good luck in your entry. It's such a perfect card for going back to school. I love the placement of the pencils. Not sure if it is a single stamp or background stamp. Yellow makes for a cheery card too.

Hi Beth! Thank you! The pencil is a single stamp that I stamped over and over.
