Anything But a Card!

Hello friends! 

We're full swing back to school here with a terrific first week behind us ♥
My son started a new school this year and came home
with smiles and tales of his new classroom.
He's a friendly kid that makes fast friends anywhere he goes
and walked to pick up point flanked by two new faces,
chatting away! 
 In one week, he got settled into his new class,
bought lunch in a 'real cafeteria with a real metal tray!'
(this apparently was BIG STUFF ... who knew!),
tried out for a part in the classroom play, trying out for a tiny role ...
and landed a lead after the teacher heard him reading - my baby!

Speaking of reading, today's post is from the Cornish Heritage Farms
Stamp Company and our challenge this week is from Irit.
We are to make Anything But a Card (or ABC).

For my sweet little man, I made him a bookmark. 
I thought it would be perfect for his back to school reads ♥


For my bookmark, I used the corner bookmark style.
Super easy!
When the book closes, it's super flat and keeps the place nicely.
I've added the digi "All Ears" by Cornish Heritage Farms to this bookmark,
colored in prismacolor markers.
He appreciated it and added it his library book straight away
(not this one, this is just a photo op book - LOL!)
and I got a big 'ol hug in return!
I love my son! ♥
We'd love for you to play along in the challenge!
If you'd like to add your CHF cards/or ABC projects this week,
and if you post to a gallery other than the CHF Challenge blog,
please use the keyword CHF60.
Thanks for stopping by today :)
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
