School's In Session -- Hip Hip Hooray!

 Well school is "officially" in session in these parts and "Hip Hip Hoorays" can be heard ringing in the hills!  Not only are the kids excited and ready, but I think for the most part many parents are too.  Seriously, is there anything more exciting for a child the start of a new school year?  After a wonderful and very busy Summer, it always feels good to settle back into a regular routine and get back into the swing of things.  My card today celebrates all those "Hip Hip Hoorays".

I used PK-128 School Bus and Lunch stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps to create this card, as well as the August Peachy Picks Kit.  The theme for the August release at Peachy Keen Stamps is "Back-To-School", and these stamps are some of the cutest I've ever seen!  They make creating school themed projects so much fun, and they really make me miss the days when my little ones were beginning a new school year.

 This happy little school bus was colored with Copic markers, and as previously mentioned, the patterned paper is from the August Peachy Picks Kit.  The only embellishment I used was this beautiful wide striped ribbon, which I absolutely LOVE!  I hope you like it, too!!

I'm so happy you could stop by today.  Have a wonderful day, and happy stamping to ya!  ... HIP HIP HOORAY!!!
