Back to the Books

Hi everyone! Well, it really is back to the books for me! We started school Monday, and wow, has it been an exhausting week! I'm so glad today is Friday. I had most of my 100+ students' names learned by the end of Day 2, so that's a plus! There are definitely some sweet ones in the bunch, so I'm looking forward to a good year.

I made this card for today's Fun on Friday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts. The challenge is to make a "back to school" card or project.

I used the Teacher's Pet digi set from Deedee's Digis. I colored the digi with Copic markers and cut it out with Classic Rectangle Nestabilities. The sentiment was cut out with Classic Circle Nestabilities. Both the image and the sentiment were matted on red cardstock that was cut out using scallop Nestabilities. I stitched around the edges, added two brown brads in each corner, and finished it off with some perfect ABC ribbon made by Jillibean Soup.

The layout is from this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a GREAT weekend! :)
