another "BACK TO SCHOOL" challenge!!



I must've been missing school so much?! This is my 3rd?, and I have to make at least one more for the swap I participate in, this month! The difficult part, making this theme card is that I have very limited "school theme" things to make cards. At the Pixie Cottage, they are running "back to school" challenge and/or the sketch. I chose both, and here is my card. I also flipped the sketch. For previous 2 cards, a "house mouse" and "tilda" looked happy and ready to go back to school, but this house mouse.. it seems he isnt' ready to go back to school yet... lol :-) I received this image from my house mouse online friend, Mary Anne (thanks again!), last fall, but last fall, I didnt' make any "back to school" card! I used old CTMH apple stamp, heat embossed them, to give a bit of thickness, and adhered onto double loops ribbons. The ribbon with printed apples is the last small piece I found in my stash :-) I put those tiny buttons on the corner with matching colors.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you'll all have a great labor day weekend! :-)
