Back to School & a little CRABBY!

I know I said that I was finished with my Back to School cards yesterday, but I had to do just one more.  This is using the crab from 2 Cute Ink with the sentiment which fits my daughter who went back for the first day of teaching 4th Grade on Friday.  She now has to leave her pup home and has to start with a new class....and she is a little CRABBY!  She was with me for the weekend and she said she said she felt like a Mother going back to work after a maternity leave and that she was not adjusting well and I had to laugh.  I gave her some of my cards that I made because she had already received 2 presents on the first day.  She wrote cards to some of her students from last year and she is has her past students coming by to see her.
I added Glossy Accents to the glasses and apple.

Such fun, one of my G Nieces has told me she's glad she hasn't got the back to school feeling, as she is on maternity leave. LOVE this card.
