Starting School Poem

A friend of mine posted this poem on Facebook about going to school for the first time.  It’s a real tear-jerker!  Little J won’t be starting until next year but it still struck a chord with me.  I made a simple little card using the poem and an image from Mami Doodles.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers – Anything Goes

Fashionista Challenge 6 – Card for a Child


Here’s the text of the poem:

First Day of School

(Wendy Silva)

I wonder what you’re doing right now
and if everyone is treating you kind.
I hope there is a special person,
a nice friend that you can find.

I wonder if the teacher know just
how special you are to me.
And if the brightness of your heart
is something she can see.

I wonder if you are thinking about
me and if you need a hug.
I already miss the sound of your voice
and how you give my leg a tug.

I wonder if you could possibly understand
how hard it is for me to let you grow.
On this day know that my heart breaks,
for this is the first step in letting my baby go.


Back to School card

It’s that time of year again!  Back to school!

This card is for my friend’s daughter who is starting ‘big school’ on Monday.  The image is from Sassy Cheryl and is coloured with Promarkers.  I cut the scalloped oval and blackboard with with my Cricut (Craft Room Basics).  I attempted a bit of faux stitching with a needle and white gel pen.  I’m not sure if it was a success or not!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Fantabulous Cricut – Back to School Cricut Crawl Challenge 126

Bitten by the Bug 2 – Back to School
