Back to school

Hello lovely people,

I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend.  Mine consisted of a beer festival on Saturday, recovering/working (yes, really!) on Sunday and then a long walk with Dr Hubby on Monday so pretty perfect apart from the working bit.

Today I have taken a mini break from DT work to create a card for a couple of challenges and I used the current sketch from Papertake Weekly;


This was a lovely versatile sketch, which I have rotated 90 degrees to the right and angled some of the panels.  This card seemed to demand a clean layout... just snuck in a little bit of stitching and some twine!  I punched the notebook edge with my Bind-it-all and ripped the holes a little.


I don't have any kids to send back to school but I just had to colour up this gorgeously cute little chap :-)


Card recipe;
DP: Fancy Pants - Park Bench
Twine: from The Ribbon Girl

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51
Hair: E41/42/43/44

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Papertake Weekly (sketch #82)
2.  Tiddly Inks (back to school)
3.  Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)

Thanks for visiting and please do say hello if you have time :-)

Hugs,
Kat xx
