Off To School

Have you ever had one of those weeks that fly by but feels like the longest week ever?  That is this week and I am so glad that it is Friday and the weekend is here.

Friday also marks the start of another Stamp Something Challenge, I can't believe that the summer is coming to an end and it is time for this but this week we would like you to
Stamp Something for Back to School

Once again we are sponsored this week by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp who are offering one lucky participant a $20.00 gift certificate. I am sure that you can find something there to keep yourselves amused while the kiddos are in school.


For my card this week I have used a fabby image from Mo's Digital Pencil called To School and I have coloured him up to look like my nephew who will be heading off to Junior Kindergarten next month. All of the papers are from an older Making Memories collection that I cannot remember the name of but I thought that all of the rulers and text included in the patterns fit the back to school theme perfectly. In keeping with the masculine theme of this card I opted to skip the flowers and have added the dimensional star stickers for embellishment and then finished it all off with a sentiment from LOTV which was also popped up for some extra dimension.

I hope that I have inspired you just a little bit to give the challenge a go. Before you head off to start crafting though, be sure to stop by the Stamp Something Challenge Blog and see the beautiful creations from the rest of the team.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend and happy crafting.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
