SSS January 2013 Card Kit & Back To School

Today I am using the beautiful January 2013 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I love everything about it, the stamp set, the gorgeous papers, the awesome woodgrain white cardstock sample, the journalling tickets and canvas buttons....just totally gorgeous!  I made a masculine card  with some of the goodies:

Paper: cardstock (Bazill); designer paper (Lily Bee's "city Persnikity")
Ink: Archival Jet Black
Stamps: SSS (Very Special)
Other: Journalling Ticket (Tim Holtz Idea-ology); PTI banner die

Isn't that journalling ticket awesome!  There were 4 in the kit, I think I need to perhaps save the others for the scrapbooking I am hoping to get into very shortly!

It was also back to school for my little girl this morning!  First day of Grade 2!  We only find out the morning of who her teacher will be, not that it mattered as I don't know either one.  It seems to have all gone well, I guess I will have to wait for pick up  done to get the whole run down!

Natasha in full pose!

Wishing you all a glorious day!

I've hesitated getting into those card kits but I really love what I'm seeing everyone create with them! This is such a great masculine card Brenda! Those tickets look like a lot of fun to use! Hope your dear daughter's first day went well:). Love that smile!

Masculine cards are not my forte and I am always looking for inspiring examples. I found one here; love the mix of a plain background and a patterned strip. The ticket is fab!
Geesh back to school; your daughter looks so summer-y in her dress (and gorgeous) it's freezing here...brrrrrr

Great card B! Those kits are really great, and can't wait to see what you make up next.
Natasha looks so cute in her uniform. I'm sure she will have a wonderful time in Grade 2

Bet you'll hear lots of news today when school is out, Brenda! How special! Love this card. I've only had a kit once and ended up not using most of it, but it seems to work wonders for you. Great "feel" to this card.
