Back to Skool

Morning all.  We have a new theme over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge this morning.  Perfect for September, we are looking for your back to school cards. My own son left school years ago but my Nephew, Charlie, started senior school this year and two of my great nieces started nursery.  Personally, I don't think you are ever too old for school and I've done loads of courses and exams since leaving all those long years ago.  My last one was a NVQ in business admin at a college in Nottingham which I took last year.

I had an idea of what I wanted to do with this card and was lucky to find some digi images that were a magazine download about a million years back.  I'd forgotten I'd got them.  Not sure what on earth prompted me to go looking but I'm glad I found them.  I've got some fab Christmas images in the same folder.  Bonus!

I die cut lots of ink splodges and coloured three of them in to match the sweatshirts on my little kids.  I had such fun colouring them.  You can't really see it on here but I gave the ginger kid some cute freckles.  My favourite has to be the grumpy one in the middle.  I just love his face.

Anyway, now it's your turn.  Please pop over and join the fun.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Brilliant make Dawn you've covered most of the emotions kids feel on returning to school I'm sure I can think of someone who looks like each of them

  2. Our youngest always looked like the kid in the middle when starting school but he has since graduated from college so no more school for him! LOL Our daughter was more like the one on the right. Great card!

  3. Fantastic fun card, the kids are perfect. Emma

  4. A lovely, fun card, such cheeky images!
