Back to School

Hi all,
 Hope you all had a brilliant Bank holiday weekend,

Our challenge over at Creative Card Crew for this fortninght is
                                 BACK TO SCHOOL

Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp

Other challenges to have fun with,
Magnolia Stamp Lovers  ~ to use fall or autumn colours
Simple Doodles   ~ Back to school
Stamp Something ~ Back to School
S2G ~  Back to School with a twist to add alphabets/letters

This is my DT card, I hope you will check out my other teamies fab creations.

I've used a die cut shutter card from Whichcraftuk and double sided dp by Magenta 'shades of the season' collection also available from whichcraftuk.
Stamps are:
 Edwin with glasses... I added glossy accents to his glasses.
 Valentine Tilda and Books all by Magnolia and coloured with copics.
 I pieced Tilda's dress and stamped onto the paper for the books, then shaded with a coloured pencil.
The letters and numbers were cut on my Cricut with George cartridge.
I made a blackboard, (although these are a bit old fashioned now) and doodled with a white gel pen.
A bit more doodling with a pencil and a couple of bows from my stash.
A bright a cheery card to wish a fabulous year at school,
My grandson starts full time reception class next week, don't they grow fast.

Thanks for stopping by,
Love cherie    //*.*\\
