Off to School we go!!!

Off to school 2012


See what our designers have created for you this week

Off to school we go!!! Do you remember that time in your life? I do! I remember the first day of school was always so much fun, you got to see all our friends you have not seen all summer long again and you could wear your brand new dress and shoes, when I went to school we had to wear dresses. kids do not know how easy they have it now, and I had to walk 3 miles to school and back in a dress and we could not wear pants. I grew up in upper Michigan… hahaha I had to walk to school but it was only a couple blocks but we had to wear dresses! We did have lots of snow and it was frozen. Such is life. Welcome to another Digital Delight Thursday! See what our designers have created for you this week. There are so many wonderful cards for you to see this week!  I want to share with you my card. The images I used on my card are SCHOOL BUS and BACK TO SCHOOL SENTIMENT. Sorry I’m a little late posting my card today but my mother-in-law came in yesterday  for a surprise visit for a couple days.

off to school left 2012

I will try and make this short and sweet so I do not have to keep my mother-in-law in the front room by herself for a long time. Oh.. yes I do not do things right when I’m hurried so I forgot to take the picture of what markers I used (again), so sorry!!! : •(

The dies used are from Memory Box wrought iron fence, arboscello tree and country house. The ABC"’s are from some paper ABC”s I have had for yearssss and I colored them and used versa mark and  clear embossing power and heat set them with my heat gun to make them shine. Pearl Pen colors sunny yellow, red and green. The papers used are from my stash.

off to school right 2012

The apple is a punch from punch a bunch called (guess what?) apple!!! Spellbinder is curved rectangle.

off to school inside 2012

Here are all the little cuties that are sitting inside the bus. OH!!! I almost forgot I add some Pearl Pen Red for the upper bus lights and sunny yellow for the bottom light. I really had fun doing this card and I’m going to give my card to Emma (granddaughter).

I will be back, I have to upload another card. Now I need to go watch the grandkids so Mon and Dad can go to night school. So have a wonderful day.

Lots of super big hugs, Patricia

Wonderful!! What a great imagination you have!!!!! Never though of using that country house die. I too wore dresses all the way through school. And I too walked back and forth to Grammar school which took a good 30 minutes.
