Hi, Diane with you today with a card I made for our
latest challenge Back To School
I think this will be a cute card to send to one of the grand-kiddo's!

I started by using Dreamweavers White Embossing Paste
on Kraft card stock and Memory Box Texture Dots Stencil.
The paste was applied with a Palette Knife.
A fun way to add a bit of texture to a project.

I used an embossing folder I had for the ruler strip you see,
which I ran black ink over once it was embossed.

I cut a bushel basket and several apples using
Impression Obsession die Bushel of Apples.

The blackboard is Canvas Corp paper called Chalkstock,
which I used a white Signo pen for the words.

I added the "pets" using Impression Obsession Squirrel Set.

Entering the following challenges:
Going Grey With Scrap Creations .... Back To School
Shopping Our  Stash .... Splish Splash ( texture paste)
Amusing Challenge .... Back To School
Crafty Creations .... Back To School (using inking EB folder technique)

Thank you for visiting with me today!

This is so adorable!! I love the embossed ruler!! The basket of apples is awesome!! And the squirrels are so cute...much cuter on paper than in person!! I'm having a hard time keeping them off my bird feeders...they are leaping from the trees and eating all of the seed!! Stinkin' rodents ;) But I guess they have to eat, too :) Have a great day my friend :)
