You're a Class Act!


Happy Friday Friends!  I’ve missed some of my favorite challenges lately.  Things have been SO busy around here.  Actually, I’ve made cards for some of them, but I just haven’t had the time to post anything or comment on some of my favorite blogs.

  Today’s Blogger’s Challenge theme is Back to School.  Click here to head over to Lisa Somerville’s blog to play along.  Having many teacher friends, I wanted to be sure to participate in this challenge.  So, I combined the Back to School theme with the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  (Click here to see the sketch.)  I started off with this adorable teacher and sentiment from the My Favorite Things a’ la modes collection called You Rule.  She is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E01, E23, E27, R00, R29, and R39) and then I fussy cut her out.  The notebook print is from My Mind’s Eye and the other papers are from October Afternoon.  I used the My Favorite Things Layered Rose Die-namics, the Double Scallop Border Die-namics, and the File Tab Die-namics.  My other accents include a Papertrey Ink button, some linen thread, and an older Cuttlebug embossing strip. 

Thanks so much for visiting with me today.  I hope to be back a little later on this weekend to share a few more cards with you.  Until then…Toodles!  :D

As usual, this is beautiful. Is that a red felt flower? Perfect accent.
