Back to School!

Happy Sunday Friends! So sorry for being out of the blogging loop lately. We had a huge yard sale yesterday and it literally took me all week to gather things from the attic and around our home, organize all of them, and then set everything up. We had LOTS of items for sale. Thankfully, many of them are off to good homes. So that's where I've been...how was your week?

I combined two of my favorite weekly challenges for today's card. This week's Blogger's Challenge theme is Back to School (to play along, just head over to Lisa Somerville's Blog) and my sketch is from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club (you can find the sketch on Kim's blog.) My image is from the My Favorite Things a' la modes - You Rule set. She is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, BG11, BG32, C1, E000, E00, E23, R11, and the Colorless Blender) and paper pieced with patterned paper from the Report Card collection from October Afternoon. My other patterned papers include A*Muse Gingham and the notebook piece is from My Mind's Eye. I used some machine stitching, a heart made with the MFT Hearts-a-Plenty Die-namics, the scallop strip was made with the MFT Simply Scallops Die-namics, and the embossed circle was made with the Sunflower Rosette CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas. I added a Papertrey Ink button with some of my new twine from the Paper Source to complete my card.

Thank you so much for visiting with me. I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow with a creation for this week's challenge from The Cat's Pajamas...Toodles! :D

Adorable. I love how you put the A plus on the paper. I will be stealing that idea for my next card with this girl. Hope you had a successful day. The weather was perfect.

Such a cute image for Back to School (and she has a head! LOL). I love the colors you used and the DP. Glad your yard sale was successful- it is such a good feeling to accomplish a cleaning out project, isn't it???
