SSS: Alex's card for Ellie

Tough time here for momma. 
My first born has now started first grade and for the first time in both of our lives, he will be gone ALL day!!  I have been so blessed to be able to stay home with my boys so it is bittersweet as he enters this new phase in his academic pursuits.  I think the little guy will have it harder though as his best playmate will be gone and make new friends. 
I am so glad that he will start preschool in a couple weeks. 
He loved preschool last year so I suspect he'll have a lot of fun this year too.

Not much crafting for me as DH and I are switching spaces.  I had the spare bedroom, moved out to let him create a quiet space for an office and I moved into the "dining room" and now we're flipping it all back. 
He wants to be on the main floor and I like not having to worry about my creative messes.
The only downside is that I'll be away from the computer...
Or maybe I'll get more done.... hmmmmm....
My supplies are in laundry baskets, piles, and pretty much in chaos. 
Hope to be back to some challenges myself next week.

Here's Alex's birthday card he made for his friend Ellie.
He chose the zebra from Create a Critter.
They LOVE that cartridge and I am so glad I bought it!


Supposed to say "Have a good birthday"

Hang in there Kelly! I know he will love the 1st grade and that will make you happy. I see he also had his mother's creative gene. Very cute card!
