My Turn for Blog Candy!!!

Good Wednesday Morning! Yippee! Today is the day that I get to share some Blog Candy with you! The set that I chose to share with you is called A Touch of Class from Storage Units, Ink and More! Being a teacher, you may have guessed that I have always loved going to school, so this was the perfect set for me! Would you like a chance to win this set? Just leave me a comment on this post and let me know if you enjoyed going to school or not. I'll pick a winner on Saturday afternoon. Best of luck to you!

Here are a few details about the card. The card base is Core'dinations Raspberry. I also added a layer of Core'dinations Tranquil Blue with a touch of plaid designer paper from Scenic Route. The wide red grosgrain is from Stampin' Up and the button is from Doodlebug Designs. I colored up my little school girl with watercolor pencils and markers. I took advantage of the fact that this is a clear stamp set, so I was able to bend the sentiment into a curve to fit nicely just above the little girl.

If you feel that Lady Luck is with you today, then be sure to head over to Leigh's blog, Sunflower Studio. She has a stamp set up for grabs as well. Hope that you all have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles!!! :D

Good Morning!
School was pretty good at the time but I think I would enjoy it more now that I know more about it & life. Funny huh?!

Doris said...

Jenn Boucher said...

Hi Kimberly,
I LOVED school! I enjoyed learning, the majority of my teachers and especially spending time with all my friends. Graduation for me, was bittersweet. It was a great accomplishment but I was sad to say goodbye to my friends, teachers and all the good times at school!
Now that my youngest child of six is five, I am pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education and I am enjoying every minute of it!
Thanks for the opportunity to win some yummy blog candy!

I love your card, she is so adorable. I am one of those people who loved going to school. I could not wait for August to come around so I could by new school supplies. I guess that is why I became a teacher. The thrill of opening new crayon and pencil boxes and getting to meet your teacher for the first time.
Thanks!!

stampinc said...

Cute cute card! Going to school was ok, plus meet some good friends that we still keep in touch. This set would be awesome to win. In my neighborhood there are 4 teachers and a principal, so this set would get plenty of love and ink. Thanks for a chance.

Jennie Harper said...

Hello, enjoy checking out your blog! What a cute card.
I loved going to school, more for social reasons than educational :o)))
Have a great day!

Gretchen said...

Kimberly- Hey! I was attracted to your card in the SCS gallery and it brought me here! I love your work and have added your blog to my favorites. I too, loved school! Thanks for the blog candy opportunity!

Good morning Kimberly!
This card is beautiful, just like all your work.
I loved school and I was always working hard to be the first of my class! I wanted to become a teacher when I was little, but I became a financial analyst. Now I am giving scrapbooking classes... a dream came through!

I really like your card. I always loved school when I was little...and now I'm a teacher so I still get to go everyday!

patrina+2 said...

I loved school and I love this stamp set. I loved school so much that I've decided to be a teacher "when I grow up". LOL! I am working on slowly but surely and hope to be teaching kindergarden by the time my 2yo goes to pre-k. I was considering ordering this set for back to school cards for my daughter,but maybe I'll win it instead. I especially love the desk. It really reminds me of elementary school. Our children know nothing of desk as they are always seated around tables.

Tina said...

Good morning. I liked school. I'm fairly social, ahem to but it mildly, it was a great place to socialize!
Have a great day!

Hedi Gore said...

Thanks for offering the blog candy. I did enjoy going to school, for the social interaction. I could have lived without algebra and chemistry though. Glad that is over and done with.

Although I got good grades throughout school, I can't say that I really enjoyed it. I didn't mind going to school but I don't have any lasting memories of my time in school.

Carrieb said...

I, like you, am a teacher today because I LOVE school. Fall is my favorite time of year...the crisp air, the new clothes, the school supplies. I can actually sniff a new book (yes, I'm weird!) and get excited about school again!

Karen Watson said...

School was fun for me. I loved organizing my folders, desk and locker...and guess what, I became a teacher, too! I love going everyday and laugh and learn with the children. They're so fun!
Love your card!

Suzanne J Dean said...

I always loved going to school. I especially loved buying all the new supplies--nothing like a fresh box of crayons and new binders to get you in the mood for school. I still enjoy buying them for my kids! Thanks for the chance!

Olivia M. said...

I loved going to school-I still love the idea if I could go back :P. I always loved shopping for new supplies, even though we were poorer than most of my classmates (you know free lunch/reduced rates on tuition). I always looked around the local drugstore to buy the most stuff (with plenty of variety) with the small amount of money that I had saved up all summer. Oh and by the way, your card is adorable. She's wearing pants like I used to have..LOL!

Dani said...

I really have loved school my entire life, which is probably why, like you, I became a teacher! :) And that is probably why, like you, I need that set. Hint, hint! ;)

ChrystalN said...

Hello! I LOVED school. Although in the later years of high school I think it was just hanging around with my friends I loved the most...;) Thanks for this opportunity to win blog candy!

Shannon said...

Great card. Perfect for the beginning of the school year. I loved it when school first started. Buying new clothes, supplies, starting new classes and seeing friends you have missed. By the end of school, I had enough and was ready for summer!!

Ashley said...

This card is so cute! I didn't enjoy school when I was in it, but I worked with children with special needs and I enjoyed going to school with them.

Great card. I loved school and learning new things. I always wanted to be a teacher but life did not take me in that direction. I do teach software, so maybe it did take me there.

what a cute card! I would say that i really enjoyed school. I liked being able to spend time with all my friends in one place everyday. I enjoy learning new stuff and i actually liked taking tests.

Cindy Vernon said...

I'm a teacher too so it would really work for me, plus i have little ones who will eventually be heading off to school!

Brenda said...

Cute card! I loved going to school. I wish now that I had paid a little more attention to my studies. Thanks for the chance.

Another Loock Creations said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I hated returning to school in my elementary years. But when I got into middle school, and high school I enjoyed going back to see my friends. I don't think I could survive in todays high schools!

Becky said...

I love the card! As far as school, no I did not enjoy school. Remember the song "Seventeen" by Janice Ian. That could have been my theme song. I outgrew it though, and married a great guy and have 3 wonderful children and 3, almost 4 grandchildren.

Joyce C. said...

Your card makes me want to redo elementary school but only if I could be much taller and bigger. I was short and skinny and always last to be picked for a team. College was great tho' and being over 50 is fab!

sandyh50 said...

Oh, I loved going to school and my favorite game was playing "school" with the neighborhood kids and my sisters. Guess what I do now? I teach!

Great blog candy and I love your card.

Lori said...

Cute card! School was so-so for me. I was REALLY shy so that part was difficult. I was pretty good at the academic part, though.

ALLY said...

What a cute card! I remember that going to school was a fun thing. I didn't have my best friend live next door like my sister did so going to school meant seeing all of my friends and having some fun!

cherylhorton said...

Good Morning - wow, love school? I always said I could have been a professional student for life. I loved school that much. I know most people think I'm weird, haha. My 7 yr old is the same way, just loves school and the schedule. Actually I just think he likes a schedule - knowing where he has to be and what to do every day. So this is a great set for our household. Thanks for the chance to win. I'm just loving all of their new sets! Cheryl

jules p said...

I loved school. I would be a professional student if I could. I taught for years, before economics encouraged me to follow another dream. Thanks for the chance and the walk down memory lane!

Katherine said...

hehe, I love going school because I can communicate with many different people and I can hang out with them. Indeed, studying is such a boring thing, but it would not bother me a lot because I know it will be passed soon.

Tiffany said...

Hello! Cute card!!!!

I never liked the idea of going to school, but once I was there, I was ok with it.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Karen M said...

Yup! I loved going off to school in the fall. The new clothes, books, supplies. And getting to be with my friends that I had not seen all summer.

Hello Kimberly, love your card, cute little girl. I enjoyed school most of the time, met a lot of dear friends at school, and some awesome teachers who encouraged me, would I want to repeat those years, not really, if it had not been for all that I went through during those years I would not be the woman I am today.
thank you for a chance to enter.
Blessings...

Pam in Ar. said...

School for me wasn't just the learning experience, but also where I made life long friendships. We studied together, talked about boys together...confided our deepest secrets to each other.... and now, in our adult lives, we reflect together...do you remember Miss So and So? Or...remember when so and so did this and the teacher was sssooo mad!!

It's not only the book learning I remember, but now, years later I can still recall those years with friends I still have :~)

Thanks for asking me to remember the things I hold dear even today.

Pam

Fantastic card - love the colors!! What a terrific stamp set - I could get a lot of use out of this. There are so many educators in my family and friends.

Dale said...

Very cute card Kimberly.
I loved school until life at home fell apart and then I struggled in school which made learning hard. It wasn't until grade 12 that things changes for me and enjoyed school again. I never went on to university due to fear which is one thing I regret now.
I do all and everything I can to give my children all the support and encouragement they need to keep on loving school.

JIB said...

Thanks for the chance.

School was ok. I was extremely shy..even through High School. I was so shy that I would take a F on oral speeches. That was ok because I was a straight A student and I could sacrifice it. When I tell people how shy I was no one believes me. It took until I was about 23 to really come out of it. But there are still times I feel it roar it's ugly head.

"The Sassy Divas" said...

Hello Kimberly,
Your card is beautiful and I love the image. It would be a great set to have. Thanks for the chance to win.
I did not like school at all, now I would love it. I was so shy when I was young and it was harder for me to make friends, but I loved all my grade school teachers.

Kristine said...

OH WOW--what an adorable girl!! and I just HAD to click through and see all the new sets SUink has--FUN FUN! Ok, I would just like to say that I went to school to be a teacher and taught special ed in our middle school for a few years. I have 2 girls ages 8 and 9 and am always wanting ideas for teacher cards for their teachers. It's also really sweet to stamp a little 3x3 note and stick it in their lunchboxes. This set would be perfect. =) Thanks for the chance!!

jennifer said...

Hi Kimberly! Can't really complain about school. What else are you supposed to do for those years from the time you're five 'til you're twenty-two? Thanks for the blog candy!

Hello Kimberly! School was great - I was the teacher's pet =P or otherwise, known as the geek. Hehe. The greatest thing about school is that I made several wonderful friends whom I am still in contact with after so long. Memories of my schooling days are lovely.
