Creatively Me

Just another day in my life

AiF challenge #93

Welcome to another new challenge day at AiF.  This week we are on our new site!  Very exciting.  Our challenges have changed  a bit, we are now offering a freebie to work with and going to a 2 week challenge period.  The design team is smaller this term as we work out the kinks on the new site and yet the creativity is huge.  Make sure you check out the DT inspiration this week.

Here is my card for this week’s challenge of Back to School/Hooray for Teacher

I really wanted to keep this card simple and use primary colors.  I did a little paper piecing (something I’ve not done in awhile) with some scraps (**sigh** yes I am still using scraps) and colored the image Ella Teacher with my Copics.   A little chalking for the sentiment which I printed out on the computer and for embellishments just a bit of ribbon, stickles and bling, all of which are from my stash.  I will admit, the only new thing I used on this card besides the image, was the new border punch I picked up.  I realized I had NOTHING in terms of a scallop punch so I thought I better have one!

Entered into the following challenges:

Art Impression Stamps: School is in!

CRAFT Challenge: Children

DivasbyDesign: Back to School

Clear it Out Challenge: Back to School

Ribbon Car0usel: Anything Goes (must have ribbon as well)

It’s an AiFactory Challenge

Hey everyone! AiFactory is starting the fall term with a new Design Team and a new Challenge.  In case you didn’t know, I am the new DT lead for AiFactory and am extremely chuffed about it. :)  So this week our theme is back to school!  We got to use these really cute images

So here is the card that I made

The DP was from a stack pack that I had bought eons ago, and the ribbon from a swap.  I cut the apple and the crayons out using my cricut A Child’s Year cartridge!  Basic colorings with the copics.  I hope you like it and I hope you will play along at AiFactory as well.  Just pop over to the challenge blog and upload your entry using the linky. You have until Wednesday September 15 12:00EST to get in to win this week’s images.  If you use some AiF images awesome but you don’t have to ..but make sure you check out the freebie section!  You also don’t want to miss checking out the awesome creations by our DT
