Back to school

It's that posting week again. You know the weeks when I have all my cards up and then it gets empty for a week and then I am back again. And as you read this it's I'm back week again. LoL And our theme for the week over at PFP is also about being back, "Back in School" that is. So if you use Letraset Markers to colour your images you are more than welcome to join us. Here in Sweden we're already in our third week back in school and with that comes the colds. So this week has started with a sick kid and a tired mum. Oh, I am just hoping that I will stay off the cold. I don't have the time to be sick now. In a month or so yes, but not now. LoL


So my card then. Well, it's not that nice. You really should go and check out what my teamies has done for this challenge. They totally rocked it. Myself well, it's a card at least. I have used a lovely image from the Paper Shelter for this creation and it's called Vintage Teacher. I kind of had trouble colour this one in with my strange behaving hands and since I didn't want to start over a third time, I gave the vintage teacher a smart board instead of a slate. A modern vintage lady. I also ended up in the almost monochrome feeling going white, red and black. Just a dash of blue is added.

I was also clever enough to use up some Authentique designer papers that I have bought for wedding and engagement cards. So good to use up parts of the old stash. I also looked around in my big box of ribbons and found some old felt ribbon that I could use. A few pearls and some letters and numbers and I finally managed to finish this card off in the nick of time.


Sponsoring this challenge is Whiff of Joy stamps. I think the prize is one stamp that is in stock. Have to confirm this later on.

Anyway, I hope that you will come and join me and the rest of the PFP crew for this weeks challenge. Can't wait to see you around!

Love n hugs
Marie

I think you are selling yourself short. I love this card. The colour combination with the pops of red is awesome. The teacher is sweetly coloured and the felt is a great detail. Love the black ABC letters for their great contrast. Thanks for joining our Back To School challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon. Hope you avoided the cold.
