Back to School

From what I've noticed, it's already back to school for many kids. Didn't know this, as it's still more than a month here in Malta before our kids go back to school. They start in the last week of September, so quite some more time before they start again. Today it's also a Public Holiday here yay :) I love this, some free time for me as well. Not sure yet what we will be doing, but probably another day at the beach.

Anyways, I have my card today for this week's StampFairy Challenge and as you must have guessed, the theme for this week is BACK TO SCHOOL.

This is the first time that I'm doing a Back to School card, so I didn't have any school related DPs or other stuff to use, and so I opted for some embossing and well... what you can see ha ha : ) I really liked how it turned out. The image that I am using is Lenny Back to School and the sentiment, which is a freebie, is also from Stamp Fairy. I coloured both with my promarkers.

So now why don't you come and play with us for your chance to win some gorgeous Stamp Fairy images.

I am entering my card in these challenges -
- Creative Inspirations 66 - BACK TO SCHOOL
- Crafty Catz 95 - EMBOSS IT
- Do You Stack Up 32 - EMBOSS IT
- Crafts and Me 47 - MAKE IT COUNT (for the number 2 in my sentiment)

And now I have some exciting news as I did the Top 3 at Winter Wonderland

You Could be One of Our Top Three

with this card... my Stamp Fairy card from last week's challenge. woo hoo :-) Been some time since I did a Top 3, so was really excited when I found out.

Thank you for looking girls

Well done Dora for a top 3, and I love these images, I have been over and had a wee looky. You have coloured him in beautifully, and the papers and embossing look great. My kiddies go back to school tomorrow, so lots of house work scheduled when the house is empty. It will stop me from feeling all lonely as it is really wierd when the house is quiet. Just have to turn up the music!! hugs heidi x

Great card, thanks for sharing it with us at CraftyCatz this week.xx

Annette said...

Wow Dora, congrats on your top 3 (always more satisfying to know you've been selected by choice rather than a random number generator). It was a deserving win. And I love your school card. I've not made these kind of cards before (I don't have kids and so didn't know these kind of cards were required!) and schools here have a few more weeks off yet too. Love how you've coloured the apple with the little white highlight. Makes me want to reach in and eat it. Annette xx
