BACK TO SCHOOL

I knew immediately when I saw this image of the little bookworm.....that this set was a must have for me! He is just so stinkin cute wearing those big round glasses! I smile every time I look at him. :)

This weeks Bloggers Challenge was "Back to School". Now how perfect was that....knowing I was just itching to make a card with my new little bookworm. LOL

With the exception of using Neenah Solar White card stock, Memento black ink and Copic markers R29, B21, B91,YG11, and YG95, everything else is by Stampin' UP. The DP is called Summer Picnic and was teamed up with Real Red and Brocade Blue. These wonderful little stamps are from the set called "First Day"from the summer mini catalog. Circle, scallop and the spiral border punches were also used.

Take a look to see what everyone else came up with for this weeks challenge. Just click on the "Bloggers Challenge" button which can be found on the right side of my blog.
