SC294: I {heart} school

Hello and happy Wednesday! I took the time to play the SCS sketch challenge today; the sketch was perfect for one of the new Pink Cat Studio digi images Melissa just released. I thought they were just the cutest, and it was my luck that she was offering a special bundle! Woot woot! Or, maybe I should say "Hoot, hoot!"....

I made the card a bit bigger than the sketch, while keeping the interior layers about the same size. I just couldn't bear to cover up this lovely shimmer paper! Unfortunately I wasn't able to capture the shimmer in the photo. The red panel is Cuttlebugged with the "numbers" folder, while Hootie Owl is colored with Crayolas. The card is embellished simply with grosgrain ribbon and a coordinating "softie" button.

Image: Pink Cat Studio Digi Stamp
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Summer Sun, Real Red, Basic Black, KI Memories DP
Embellies: Wrights Black Grosgrain Ribbon, KI Memories "Softie" Button
Extras: Crayolas/Goo Gone, Cuttlebug/Numbers Embossing Folder, DMC Floss, EK Success 3D Dots

I guess we are all about back-to-school right now. DD is loving it, while DS is not so impressed. He did come home with "war paint" on his face today. He corrected me when I said "Indian"; he said Native American. I had no idea that I was being politically incorrect.... I did learn a bit about the colors though: red = war, black = death, white = peace, blue = sad/depression, green = earth, and I can't remember what yellow signifies. Anyway, he doesn't know why he can't have summer vacation all year.... I am trying to get back in the routine of laying clothes out at night, etc. It just seems to make everything go so much smoother in the a.m.

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your evening!

hey Angela, your little school owl is so adorable! When you say Crayolas do you mean good old crayola crayons?? That is a great coloring medium that I hadn't really thought of for cards but I love the idea! So sorry your son is not so "impressed" with school ... my son goes back in a few weeks and i'm sure he'll be the same. I too make all our lunches and lay out our clothes the night before (when I'm really on the ball I do the whole week!) and find that it just makes the morning go so much easier!!

Great take on that sketch. I might have to go check out these images, great for a teacher's gift. Glad your kids are back into the routine of school, I agree getting everything ready the night before makes the morning run so much more smoothly.
