Back to School, or in Katie's Case College!

Today's creation is for a new image release over at Inky Impressions. All images are 'Back to School' related & are fabulous! Make sure you pop over & see all images & sentiments in the new release, the DT have made some awesome things using them!
I decided t make our Katie Kat a card for when she starts college next week. I know she is really scared & worried about it, as there's not many of her school friends going to the same college & I don't think there's anyone in her classes she knows. So I thought this might make her smile. I also used one of the sentiment to make a tag, now all I'v got to do is buy something for her lol....I made our Danni a card a few weeks back, just need to buy her something as well then all sorted for next week!

If you pop over here & leave a comment about our new release you might win one of our new release images!!
