Rewind to September - CARDS Magazine


Rewind in your minds to September for me please... summer is ending and the kiddos are sharpening pencils for the first day of school.  You've bought new shoes, new backpacks, and new lunch boxes - and of course, you've made a card to get on the good side of the new teacher. ;)

This "Back to School" card was published in the September issue of CARDS magazine.  I used lots of Papertrey Ink goodies and thought the tickets were an unexpected and fun way to add little embellishments.  If you changed the sentiment this card could work any time of year for your favorite teacher - I'm certain that notes of encouragement are always appreciated. ;)

I hope you're enjoying the weekend and getting some crafty time in - HUGS.

ALL Supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: School Time, Just the Ticket, and It's Official, Ink: All SU! - Soft Suede, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, and More Mustard; Cardstock: Kraft, Rustic Cream, Harvest Gold, Lemon Zest, Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, Ocean Tides, and Aqua Mist; Tools: Just the Ticket border die; Notebook Page die; Sassy Somethings: Dark Chocolate twill and button, twine

Aww! What fun! I love love love those wee tickets. The one with the school bus is my fave. I really dont understand why all your cards aren't publish. Surely they are just taking their time getting around to it. ;-) Your crafting genius is amazing! Congrats my friend!
