As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Thank goodness Mr Virgin is behaving today and the engineer that came yesterday changed all the connections all through the house. Not sure I would want to try and do all the links today on my hudl.
So back to my card which I feel a bit guilty about it really does look Clean and Simple but it did take a while to layer my arrows.
My mind went blank what to do for a Back to School card and that was partly why I got the My Mind's Eye Hello World, I was thinking of Geography. I took the world map and the Simon Says Stamp Mod Arrow Border and cut the arrows out carefully placing to one side in the way of the die to use on top of the layers. I then cut out three more layers and when all were in placed I added the map arrows.
I was so impressed with my arrow border I didn't want to hide them and in the end I just used the Simon Says Sending die with the Happy and Smile stamp to finish off the sentiment.

I was worried you wouldn't see my arrows so I took another picture at a jaunty angle.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
