School Time

Good morning everyone.  Well, this week seems to be flying by and we're already halfway to the weekend ... yeah!  It's that time of year where all the kiddos are heading back to school and the mothers are celebrating lol.  I made my grandson a "going back to school" card and thought I'd post it here on my blog.

I used this adorable By LORi Designs' Puddle Jumper School Time Scotty.  Isn't he handsome?  I sure hope my grandson doesn't have so many books that he needs a wagon :)  I colored Scotty with copics and colored pencils and applied some Glossy Accents on the apple to give it some shine.  The papers are by My Mind's Eye and I cut the A+ from a piece of the dp, matted it, and popped it up on some foam tabs for dimension.  I just picked up these mini rulers at my local HL the other day so I added a ruler for an embellie.  Be sure to stop by the By LORi Designs Digital Stamp shop ... you'll find all sorts of adorable designs to choose from.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

Primary colors always brighten up back to school cards, and your color integration if impeccable.
