School is in Session!

It’s time for me to put the scrappy stuff away for the week, as I have other obligations that I must accomplish — but I was able to finish two more cards today!

This one is for the Design Dollies color challenge — and it was a doozy!  Red, Blue, Orange and Green — that combination can be tricky, but I like how this turned out.  

I thought the sticker borders I found worked well with the paper, and I added an extra green stripe to meet the requirements of the Dollies.  This will be a nice teacher card, or a student congrats card, don’t you think?

Back to School

It’s Friday, the laundry is “cooking”, and it’s a glorious rainy day — perfect for scrapping!  I also love that it’s going to be a three day weekend, which will give me more time to sit and work on more cards for challenges that will eventually go toward my October shipment Operation Write Home.  I was going through all my stash of Back to School stuff the past couple days, and I have way too much that I’ll never use for layouts now . . . especially since I got a complete kit of the new “School Spirit” collection from Crate Paper!  (I’ll have to tell you more on how I got that nifty little kit for free another time!)  Since I did have a lot of cute diecuts and stickers that I just can’t throw away, I decided to use them for cards.

So with all this stash, I completed a card for this week’s challenge at The Sweet Shop.  Most card challenge blogs I like require you to use stamps (or their stamps).  The Sweet Shop lets you use your own, which I did for the sentiment of the card, stamped in the inside of the apple diecut:

I thought this card could card could be used for a teacher or student.  What do you think?
