Back to School Thanks



Another fun image from Whimsy & Stars Studio.  Since school is just around the corner or in some cases, already started, I wanted to create a card using a school image.  I have had the image colored for a couple of weeks now and was wanting to get it made into a card.  Sometimes there is just not enough creating hours in a day!!  I used DP from the Amber Autumn stack by DCWV and Homework by Cosmo Cricket.  I made the lil' chalkboards with black cardstock and a white gel pen.  The "thanks" sentiment is from the SU! set, Three Thoughts, stamped with white ink to get the chalk effect.  Just a little paperclip with some ribbon was the finishing touch.

Challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion - Back to School
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - School Time
Heart Song Inspirations - Back to School
My Sheri Crafts - Back to School
Crafty Catz - Back to School

Wonderful Wednesday to YOU!
