Well, anyone with kids knows that we are in the last days of summer and the kids go back to school in about 2 weeks. Maybe yours are already. My son hits grade 8 this year and he goes back on the 6th. Needless to say, he is less than thrilled.

Speaking of back to school, guess what our theme is for the next 2 weeks at Make the Cards Challenge....yep School or Teacher!

I decided to go with a slimline for my card, just because I hadn’t done one in awhile and I thought it would be great for these little gnomes!

Surprisingly, I didn’t really have any back to school stamps or papers that I could find. However I did find this apple paper which was the back side of the paper I used for my last project. It was perfect. Then I just went online and found these little gnomes and I thought it was great that they were all holding apples too! Perfect. I printed out a sentiment and I created the holes and the border using my Studio Katia slimline die set that I have.

I’m going to give it to my son on his first day back to school. I don’t think he will appreciate it as much as I do…LOL

Stop by the blog to play along with us and to see what the rest of the DT has created…there are some amazing projects there, and we can’t wait to see what you create!

Are you ready? The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it’s gonna be a fun one! Check out this mini slimline sketch!

It’s got a lot of possibilities! We also have a prize this week gracously donated by Andrea who created this week’s sketch! Andrea will donate a prize: 6 assorted colored mini slimline envelopes from Taylored Expressions. How fun is that!

Here’s my card!

Now as you can see, my card is not 100% the same as the sketch but a lot of the elements are there! I decided to pull out an old Lawn Fawn stamp set called Elphie Selfie that I’ve not used in awhile. I stamped and colored with my copics and then stacked them one on top of the other. I also used my Lawn Fawn cloudy stencil for the background for the first time paired with some Stampin Up Baja Breeze ink and I don’t know how I haven’t used it before now! It is so fun to play with! I added a bit of rainbow background paper from Kaisercraft’s Party Animals collection just to give a bit of a break between the all white. I also used my fringe scissors for the grass which I’ve not used in a long time! A few enamel dots from Your Next Stamp and we are good to go!

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog to win that fabulous prize!

Hey everyone! I am back after a rough bout of the flu! It had me laid up in bed for over a week and was not fun at all.

I am feeling much better now and able to get back to my crafting table and so I have a new project for you for Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Our we have a lovely slim line sketch for you this go round, but of course it could be modified for just a regular A2 size so don’t that scare you off!

Here is mine!

The slimline is from Mama Elephant and the stamped animals and sentiment are from Craft Addicts..I really love this grumpy animal set, it is just adorable. The tree is from another die that I got in a swap ages ago. I just used some Basic Grey paper for the focal piece as well as some cute silver little balls. I colored the images with my copics. I am sending this card to my swap partner for the Splitcoast Stampers Baker’s Dozen. I hope she likes it.

C’mon over to the blog and play along with us for this go round, we can’t wait to see what you create!
