Back To School

Cool Edwin is heading back to school, just like my kids!


I couldn't let the occasion of my son starting High School pass without creating a card for him.  As I started my quest to make something that a 15 year old boy would approve of, I came to realize that I have a true lack of 'back to school' stamps!  Then 'Cool Edwin' came to the rescue.  Not too cutesy or over the top... perfect for a 15 year old boy!


I did the sentiment on Word, using my 'Century' font and lined it up on this matching paper very carefully.  I used a nesties label to cut out the sentiment after printing.


Good luck in High School, Matt!  Your amazing work ethic and attitude will take you far!  :)
