Riley's going "Back to School!"

Hi friends!
Getting back into the swing of back to school routine here 
means quite a few things for me ~
including driving from 6 am until nearly 4 pm,
back and forth and back and forth and then some!

Which means a lot of trips to Starbucks!
I'm blessed to have a wonderful group of mom friends
and we all meet up at S'Bux when school starts again to catch up on our summers, the kids, playdates, big people dates, and more ♥
It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Starbucks
but more than that, it's a slice of serenity in an incredibly busy mom's world :)
So my card today is a bit unorthodox *wink!*

It's our Riley and Company Design Team challenge time again 
 on the Riley and Company blog and our challenge is hosted by Sandye.

For our challenge this week, has challenged us to 
create a School related card or project.
For me, driving by for my 'Bux and meeting my treasured friends is one of the highlights of school!
{and the inside of my card!}

You may have noticed a small change
 on the Riley and Company inspiration blog
 While we no longer have the biweekly challenges,
 the DT will still bring to you biweekly inspirational cards and projects!
Every other week, the DT will showcase the stamps from the store!

Thanks for stopping by today ~

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  21. LOVE the pumpkin dp! Orange is a color I rarely use...except in the fall!

    We have a local independent coffee shop that sells wonderful pumpkin lattes and pumpkin scones....I can hardly wait!

  22. One dear to my heart! While I don't care for the regular starbucks coffee, too strong, I do love their White Mocha Peppermint. Mr. gets the pumpkin ones. Love the fall colors, definitely the sentiment, and the burlap fishtail banner. Riley's got the right idea - f'sure! TFS & Happy Labor Day

  23. You enjoy your coffee fix and we will enjoy looking at your card!

  24. Isn't this just the truth for most. For me, I wait for cranberry bliss bars! That really starts my season!
