Good Morning Stamping Friends! It is a very raining Sunday here, but hopefully you are still having a wonderful day! This week's Blogger's Challenge theme is Back to School and the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club theme is Hit the Books, so I combined the two and came up with this creation.
I was a lucky girl this month because I actually WON this set from one of the My Favorite Things Blog Hops! It is called Emma and Her Backpack. Now you know that backpack is just filled with heavy books! Poor girl! She is also carrying around the dreaded, "Blue Book". You know the ones I'm talking about. Our exams were always in blue books that we'd have to turn in after writing for hours in them...ugh! Although high school and college seems so long ago now, blue books probably don't exist anymore...lol! I also stayed with the book theme and made a Matchbook Card. I haven't done that in ages! I used my Jumbo Scallop Die-namic from MFT for the bottom fold of the matchbook. Emma is colored up with Copic Markers ( B12, C7, C9, E000, E00, E01, E35, E57, RV10, RV11, YG13, and YG25) and her skirt is paper pieced with some polka dotted paper from the Nana's Nursery collection from DCWV. All of the other patterned papers are from the same collection. I added a few pearl accents and some American Crafts ribbon and one of their buttons. Some real sewing and a little bit of faux stitching finish this one off.
