Nuts About...Books!

Good morning!  I'm back with a new challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches; our sponsor for the week is Bugaboo Stamps...I always love working with their images!  We've got a great sketch too!

Today I've used Nuts About-books...doesn't he look delighted to be back in school and into the swing of things?  (My kids are in their second week and all is well...I'm so glad they both like school!  It really makes everything so much easier....)  The image is colored with pencils and I've dotted the eyes with a black gel pen.  I've popped up the main image and added and extra banner just for fun, along with a few brads for embellishing.

Image: Bugaboo Stamps
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! (Teal---not sure which shade---discontinued), Doodlebug DP
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's Bugaboo creations, gain some inspiration, and play along!  I'd love to see your take on the sketch....

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Dream Valley Challenges: For a Child
Love To Create: Back to School
The Pink Elephant: Back 2 School

Thank you for stopping by; have a great week!

We homeschool and this summer has been so crazy and gone so quickly that I've put school off as long as possible, but we start next week.
