Back to School.....

Hi there, Susan here.....

Well its Friday, and its the second week of the challenge over at Fussy and Fancy we don't want you to forget about our Back To School challenge. Its a fun challenge so why not call across at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog for full details of the challenge and then join in the fun, and if your short of inspiration for those cards take a look at what our design team has produced. Our sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Stamps. She is generously donating the winner 5 digis of their choice from the Stitchy Stamps line available at Stitchy Bear Stamps.

For my card, I used my own layout, my backing papers are from my stash, all edges have been distressed.

This very cute image is from Stitchy Stamps and is called 'Hang in there', there is such a lot of the most adorable digi stamps here, please call across and take a look you won't be able to resist!!! I used Pro-Markers to colour the image in, and then gently inked the background before distressing the edge of the topper.

My sentiment was made on my computer.

These chipboard letters were totally the wrong colour, so I rubbed them down and coloured them with inks and put glossy accents on top.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan

  3. Hi Mam.
    This is a gorgeous card but as you will know yourself, I would not have appreciated a 'Back To School' card in my day!!! It's a great idea though.
    Your layout is great and I love how bright and bold everything is. Your letters really stand out because they're so lovely and glossy.
    Great job Mam xxx
