Left Hander's Day
I drew this digital stamp and made this card in honor of my left handed daughter. We had to do some searching to find where the gene comes from. I guess it is from my side of the family and is only passed on to the girls. Pretty neat story just like my daughter is pretty neat little leftie.

I used my chalks to color the digital stamp and the background.

Bad Poetry Day
This card is brought to you by my teenager, thought it was funny to get me a card a few years back with this poem on it. Now it's my turn...

Inside saying

I think I'll give him this card on the first of day of school. I usually send the kids with a homemade card their first day back.

Just Because Day
I made this card just because I love the little flying elf/fairy. I colored him a year ago when I first got my alcohol markers and then I just put him aside.

This little guy is going to sail into my youngest son's life on the first day of school just because I love my littlest man so much.

  7. I was just by my good friend Vicky's blog and noticed your name in the list. It has been awhile since I popped by so I thought I'd come see what wacky days you covered. Great cards. That poem definitely earns a bad badge, love the sentiment on the lefty card and sweet image on the last. Now I'm headed to see Edwina. I'm afraid that will it as far as the hop but at least I'm seeing what the three of you created.
