Sisterhood Sunday Challenge #21


Good morning everyone....I hope all is well with you and your's!! The September inspiration challenge on the Stampin Sistarhood blog is a fun one....school days!!! I remember when I would get my children ready for the first day of school....new backpacks, shoes, papers, colors, and of course, pictures had to be taken!!! The inspiration photo sure did bring back a flood of memories!!!


My card features letters from the Alphabet Set #1 and the adorable Cats Set both from Rubbernecker stamps. Various colors of ink were used for all the stamps and then I went over all of the cats and letters with Copics  so the color was even. Both the ruler, lined paper dp, and background paper are from Creative Imaginations and the punched border, twine and button finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Crazy Amigo Challenge - back to school
2. Critter Sketch Challenge - back to school is cool
3. Love to Create Challenge - back to school
4. The Pink Elephant Challenge - use patterned paper
5. Always Something Creative - back to school

Thanks for stopping by.....I hope you join the Stampin Sisterhood for this fun challenge!!!!
