Too Cool for Skool

 Wow, look at me.  Creating a card for fun instead of a DT project.  Crazy!  Well, she asked so nicely. 

Let me explain.  I've been following Donna's blog Duncan Street Designs for ages and I like to comment on her beautiful cards.  Recently Donna left me a lovely comment and happened to mention that she was part of a challenge blog called The Paper Funday Challenge.  She said she would love for me to enter the challenge, so here I am.  I am a little close to the wire as this month's challenge only has a day and a half to run.  I suppose that does mean there will be another challenge soon and maybe I will find time for that one too.

The challenge was 'anything goes' with an option of 'back to school'.

I've had the Tiddlyinks image printed out for ages and never got around to colouring him.  Thanks Donna, that's another bit of my stash used up.  I'm on a mission to use what's already there in my craft room.  It's a mission I'm failing at but the thought was there.  I also used an old (ancient) Spellbinders die and cut three pencils.  I have never used this die before so that's something else I can pat myself on the back for.  I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out once I'd coloured them.  So thanks - once again - to Donna and thanks for reading.

  5. What a cheerful, charming card. Adore the classic pencils. They go hand-in-hand with the start of fall in my books, even after many (many!) years since I last sat in a classroom.
