Back to School My Sweet

Hi Everyone,
  Tiddly Inks has a great back to school challenge this week with some new images!  I of course had to join in on the fun.  My daughter goes back the day after Labor Day and I'm excited she'll be in second grade - such a big girl.  So, I made her a fun side-step card.  She loves these and I couldn't get around making one since she likes them so much.  This little avenger looks just like her too!  I colored her in my Copics and cut them out with my Cuttlebug using the nestables from Spellbinders that my sweet sweet hubby bought for me!

  I did the side-step card in a school paper from the DCWV stack all about school.  I followed the directions found here.  Next I cut out a school bus from my Stretch Your Imagination cartridge on my cricut expressions.  Also, I trimmed out images from the same paper I made the side-step in and adhered them around the card. 

Finally, I took a cute chalkboard paper that Christy over at Tiddly Inks made and used a little Photoshop to add: Good Luck Anna so that it actually looks like it's written in the paper.  I added a little paper clip and some stickles to the bus.  I can't wait to give it to her!

I love every little detail! Thanks so much for sharing! You are enabling me to research copics. That's a really bad thing. Hee! Hee! I don't need to get addicted to anything else. Hee! Hee!
