Back To School

Well, it's just about time for the kiddos here in Michigan to go back to school....
So, I decided to do a cute little "school" card to send out to wish them the best...
 
And it just so happened I came across this cute little magazine front cover challenge
at Paper Crafter's Corner, did you know they do a weekly challenge there
using the front covers of magazines...how fun!!
 
Here is this weeks cover
 
 
and here is my card.....
 
 
I embossed my card stock with NBUS (never before used stuff...lol)
a fun embossing folder from the paper studio.....
the smiley face is another NBUS stamp from Reflections
I colored my star brads (they were cream color) with Sharpie markers...
the chalkboard is a clearance item from Hobbylobby (ATC's)
and I used my new chalk marker from SU for the "math"
 
I "borrowed" a crayon cover from the grandkids color box
and stamped my "ruler" from a free stamp set I got with a magazine...
 
so, I think it turned out kind of cute and different for me....

Such a cute card Diane! Back to School is starting here in TX, too. I have had a hard time designing a card for a friend, and I think he would like something like this. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

This is adorable, Diane! And well done using all that NBUS!! Thank you for joining the NBUS movement!

And thank you for your get well wishes. I'm taking it easy and letting Mister wait on me hand and foot. He usually does that anyway, so it's all routine for him, LOL! I'm a lucky girl!
