Our Craft Lounge Sketch Challenge

Good morning stampers!!! Hope all is well with you and yours!! Yesterday my church had a reception for the teachers at our adopted grade school....can you believe school starts next week??? Where has the summer gone?? The school has a closet full of extra school supplies and clothes for the students and we keep it full by having a school supplies drive plus we give extra cash for the unexpected. I'm looking forward to seeing all the kids again....I volunteer at the school in the reading program. I could never be a teacher in a classroom with 20+ kids ( my hat's off to all the wonderful teachers who love to teach!!!) all day but helping 2-3 kiddos with their reading is a real joy !!! Anyway....

I just ordered some Our Craft Lounge Stamps and decided to make a card for their challenge...they are having a blog hop and sketch challenge so check it out here.

I used the fun Ghostly Greetings set....aren't the little ghosts adorable!!! The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored a little with copics, cutout and popped up over the cute My Minds Eye Boo to You paper. The background paper is from Making Memories Spook Alley. The little puffy bats from Michael's and the sentiment finish it off.


This is also for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast. I found my inspiration in the sweet little gostly onsie on the Pink Taffy Designs website.


Thanks for visiting this morning....I hope you have a great weekend!!!!

Those are cute little Ghosties-reminds me of Casper!

Our school started last week and my middle school teacher daughter has one week behind her now. She is always ready for school to start and then looks forward to the off days! Grin

Joan, your Halloween card rocks! Love those ghosts!! ha!

That's one thing I've really missed about going back to work, volunteering at the school. Helping little ones to read is such a joy, especially when they "get it" finally. To see their faces light up when they are able to sound out a word on their own! Enjoy your time at the school!
