Back to School

Here's another card for my swap--I think.  I'm not sure I'm too fond of this one.  It was super simple to put together, especially since I designed it days ago in my Gypsy.  But I just don't have my mojo this week.  It's been busy with my kids starting school and busy at work.  Plus, I have a very sick Aunt out of state, so my heart is just not into being creative right now. 

I used Locker Talk for the whole card.  All the paper came from DCWV Flower Shower Spring Cardstock Stack.  I welded 2 of the back to school circles (5 inches each) together and just hid the words for the card base.  Then I cut the red layer at 4 1/2 inches.  I used the layers by hiding the works on one and the pencil on another to make them different colors.  These are also cut at 4 1/2 inches.  It has some white accents I added with a Signo pen and black stickles on the pencil.  To finish it off, I inked the edges with blue ink and wrapped a bit of twine on the side.

I hope to be a little more creative tomorrow and I might have a giveaway on Thursday, so stay tuned!!

P.S.  For those that have commented on the swap, I've only really been making the one card for the swap and not extras.  I have all the files on my Gypsy and can recreate if I want to.  Every swap is different, depending on who set it up.  That's what makes them fun!!



  1. This is pretty. I know about the mojo. I haven't been in my scraproom all week. I am glad I did my projects last week. It's ok. Love your talent. Praying for your aunts health.


  2. This is so cute. Don't worry, I think we are all behind right now trying to get ready for school. I will keep your aunt in my prayers.
