Back to School (Again)

Help!!! Has anyone else lost their Reading List? I can't get mine either on my pc or IPad - is Mr Blogger up to his usual tricks or is just me????

Hello and its time for another challenge over at The Paper Shelter where the theme this week is Back to School. Here is my card:

I have used the fab Vintage Teacher which is available here to purchase. All of the images at The Paper Shelter come in both coloured and plain form for you to colour as well as some backing papers for your project. I coloured her with my Copics and then used Pierced Rectangle Stax by Dienamics to cut her out and matted her using Cheery Lynn.  The digital papers are from The Sweet Shoppe called Hometown Proud.  I used a Waltzingmouse stamp for the sentiment cutting it out with a Marianne banner.  The fishtail banners were made with Dienamics Stax and I coloured the pearls to match with my Copics.

Here is a side view:

As usual there is a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:

Please go over to The Paper Shelter to see what the rest of the DT have done for some wonderful inspiration and then get your projects entered!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

(PIN)spirational - Back to School
Melonheadz - Back to School
Di's Digi Designs - Back to School
Sparkles Monthly Challenge - Back to School
Cute Card Thursday - Back to School

I had a fabulous time in London with my boys getting back about 8:30 last night.  How angelic does this little one look:

It was taken when we took them to the Science Museum.

Thank you so much for coming to visit me and any comments you may leave which are much appreciated! I will catch up with what I have missed today, take care xx

Great picture Susan, he's adorable. Wonderful card aswell.
I loose my reading list quit often aswell, then I shut down the whole business and start again or go my own message list a few times and when I come back the list is there again. Usually this helps.
Hugs, Veerle xxx
