I'm so excited. This is the second best time of the year. The only thing that can beat it is Christmas. So what time of year is so great?
BACK TO SCHOOL
The kids are in school again. I thought I wasn't going to make it through the summer. I have my nieces all day every day and they are quite a handful. Always bored even though they have more toys than any child I have ever seen along with a backyard full of equipment and a pool. They have kept me quite busy all summer. I decided to celebrate my first day off sleeping and my second making this card to commemorate the occasion.
This lovely image and the school paper come from The Paper Shelter. They have so many cute little kids. I colored her with Whisper Strokes, Stampin' Up and Copic markers. I know that is a weird combo but I am trying to go to alcohol markers and off of watercolors. They just work so nicely. I added some Stickles by Ranger on her purse and her glasses. I also added Glossy Accents to give the glasses the glass look. The sketch is from Hanna and Friends.
The remaining papers come from Bazzill, The Paper Co., and my stash. I used a word stamp inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink for the background paper. I got the stamp at Achiever's but can't remember who the stamp comes from. The sentiment is something I did on Word and used a little Tim Holtz there as well. The die cut is Spellbinders and the floral comes from Petaloo. Finally, the ribbon is Darice.
