This year I decided to mail the kids in my life cards at the beginning of the school year to encourage them in the adventure ahead! I then gave them a gift card to a local ice cream place because some days just require ice cream!! Each kid got a card that fit them and their grade in school.

Had a couple 2nd graders and then for the Kindergarten and 1st grade I did the one below.
Supplies:
Digital Image/Patterned Paper: Diane's Daydream Designs
Metal Dies: Stitched Circle
Sketch: Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #487
Those kiddos had younger siblings that aren't old enough for school but didn't want to leave them out so they got the ones below. Basically told them to be good and have fun while their older sibling was in school then they could all go for ice cream!
Supplies:
Digital Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps/Lisa's Doodley Doos (Ice Cream Sticks). I colored them to match the kiddo they were going to.
Then my nephew's and niece (Benedict kids) I adopted when a coworker got hurt 3 years ago got these. The younger are in same grade due to how their birthdays fell on the calendar. The older boy is in 8th grade this year.
This image is special not only for my bright young man it went to but because my husband drew it when he was making a few digital stamps for Clearly Digi Stamps. My nephew is also learning how to draw so extra special to have one of Uncle Patrick's drawings.
