Back To School Clothes Shopping

Hi everyone! A while back I was talking with Heather and she mentioned she was going to be doing some back to school clothes shopping with her tween daughter soon. We joked about how not fun that is. Well, sometimes it can be fun - but at that age what the child wants to buy versus what the parent likes and is willing to pay - there are bound to be some arguments!

Anyway, I made this card for Heather as a kind of joke

I used the Shy Bear If The Shoe Fits image and colored with Copic markers and chalk. The words are computer generated. Here's the inside of the card

I love the look on this mother bear's face!

Today is my birthday and to celebrate we are going out to eat at a favorite Chinese place of mine! I've received so many wonderful cards and a couple of gift certificates so I can get my Copic refills! Yay!

Tomorrow I will have a sneak peek of one of this weekend's release. It's a fun one! Have a great one, and thanks for looking!
