Simon Says: Back To School




Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is 

Back To School

The stores are full of back to school stationary but a notebook, diary or even a bookmark is so much nicer when it is handmade with love! Why not make a little card to pop into a child's lunchbox too. So many things that we can make! We will be looking forward to seeing what you decide to create!

We are showcasing some fabulous Penny Black Productsthis week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used!

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!
Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest, Julie, and the DT have made :-)

I made an encouraging 'Back To School' card using a 'You're My Type' Cling Stamp. I love these quirky cats and need to get the whole range!! 


I have 9 cats and Amy, my daughter, has a special one called Tigger, so I coloured him to match ;-) I coloured with Copic Markers and kept the card fairly CAS.  




and when you lift the flap there is a little kitty ready to go shopping. I will pop a gift card in here ;-) 


and this is our lovely handsome Tigger helping me in my craft room (please excuse the messy background ;-)




So now it's YOUR turn to take out your school supplies and join in !! :-)

Tigger is very handsome, he has a cheeky look to his face, I adore ginger tabby cats.
Your card is brilliant, love how you used the die inside xxx

Marge said...

Oh I fell in love with this card at the first sight, Lols! The scene is so fun and cute. Maybe I should order the stamp in the future :)
You have lots of cats...! Amazing! I'm sorry that I'm not an animal person but I love to see photos or videos of animals. Hi, Tigger!♡

Haha. Always a great idea to bring humor to a card. This stamp set is insanely cute and funny! Reminds me of me with all the humidity in my city and my hair going all haywire! And the inside... that is just darling! The flap with an image of the kitty, so adorable! Have a lovely day! xx Ankita

The cover image you've used really made me smile! And I love the little lift up panel inside too - very clever.
