A Day In School :-)



I made this card for the Digital Tuesday Challenge whose theme is 'thank a teacher'. I used Dawny's fab sketch on the Papertake Weekly Challenge It also qualifies for the Cupcake Craft Challenge whose theme is 'numbers' :-)
I used a new digi download image from The Digital Stamp Oasis called 'A Day At School', Isn't she cute :-) I used my new SU card to print the images onto and am thrilled with how they colour ! much better than what I was using before !! I 3D'd the image, her feet were done 3 times !! may need to make a box for this !!
The papers are all from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts. I used the fabby new Gorjjus Gingham' set and the red script paper is from the 'In With The Old set. I am not biased, honest, !! :-) I really love these paper downloads and have bought several of them :-) So convenient :-) Joey, get yer printer sorted out !! :-)
I used diamond glaze on the apple, it looks almost real !! lovely n shiny :-)
The 'other' apple was cut out on my cricut ( fab machine !! )
The text was stamped with graphite black brilliance using a hero arts set.
The sums on the 'blackboard' were hand written by me in white pencil ( kept the sums simple !! lol), I did mean to smudge some white chalk to 'dirty' the blackboard but I forgot before I took the photo, I will do that tho, i think it'll look better, might change this pic later :-)

Thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
