This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,

BACK TO SCHOOL

For some the holidays are already over and this is just the time to make encouragement cards to pop in to lunch boxes, notebooks, school calendars etc. Or you could personalize a shop bought item. We're looking forward to seeing your creations.

We are showcasing MY FAVORITE THINGS products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

 I used Blueprints 17 Die-namics . I loved using this set, all the elements work together so perfectly.


I stamped and heat embossed the cookie with aged gold embossing powder onto watercolour paper and coloured with distress ink. The chalkboard eraser and 'chalks' were cut on the silhouette machine.

For the sentiment I stamped using white pigment ink and embossed with Frosted Crystal EP, as recommended by Tim Holtz, and then rubbed over it with chalk.


I think this would make a nice card to pop into a child's lunchbox, what do you think ? :-)
 I finished the inside too,, I should have swept the foor before taking the photo ,, lol  :-)
