This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


For some the holidays are already over and this is just the time to make encouragement cards to pop in to lunch boxes, notebooks, school calendars etc. Or you could personalize a shop bought item. We're looking forward to seeing your creations.
We are showcasing MY FAVORITE THINGS products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Oh dear its nearly time for the little uns to go back to school and no doubt school uniform shopping is on the agenda and the dreaded shoes buying and once they're back in school it will downhill all the way to Christmas and another year over. Gosh that sounds so depressing.
So something a bit cheery,  my card and although I haven't used a Back to School sentiment decided that I'll turn it into a Birthday Card and used Paper Smooches Birthday words die. A tip when cutting it out,  add some double sided tape on the back of the card before cutting out and use the left over cut out to use has a guide to stick the letters on your card.
I also decided on a Pure Innocence stamp I Wheelie like you, I thought this one with her bike would work for Back to School. I paper pieced her clothes using the Authentique Radiant pack that I used for the rest of the card.
The paper clips and the clipboard top are all from MFT Office Supplies die set originally brought for scrapbooking but worked out really well for this card. I've also discovered how to use the clipboard parts and if I had my sensible head on I would have worked it out without finding out and  thinking duh.
Just added some enamel dots  these ones are from Doodblebug.
