One Good Apple

KSS082613
My card for Kitchen Sink Monday fits right in with this time of year.  I picked up this great Simple Stories “Smarty Pants” paper pad a few days ago, so I just had to make a school-themed card for today, using the 3-Step School Days stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps.  I stamped my apple with Memento Love Letter for layers #1 and #2 (I stamped off once for #1), then Rhubarb Stalk and Lilac Posies for #3 and #4.  The leaf was stamped with Memento Pistachio and Bamboo Leaves.  The layout for my card comes from the Retro Sketch #78 for this week.
If you have kiddos that headed back to school this past week, I hope they’re doing well!  For me, it just means getting closer to what will soon be an empty nest at my house, so it’s bittersweet.  My youngest is very independent, so I haven’t had to do much to help her get prepared for school this year.  My oldest is looking into nursing school, so it’s definitely been a time of transition for both of my daughters.
Be sure to stop and see the rest of the Kitchen Sink Crew members today, with some inspiring KSS designs for you…
