Back to School Blessing

Blog Star Melinda Gleissner, made this beautiful Bless You Card, perfect for anyone’s first day back to school. How encouraged would a teacher be to receive a card on the first day of school; or an unexpected surprise for a child to find in their lunch pail.  What a great start for a new school year!

Melinda says…
“Here’s a quick card I wanted to share. It’s made with two terrific Stampendous stamps, the “Shine on You” sentiment and the “Tiled Quad Cube”. Again I used my Stampendous Midnight Black embossing powder. I wish it came in a large, say peanut butter sized jar. I just can’t get enough of it. It’s by far, my favorite black embossing powder. “
