Back to School

So I finally had a couple of days off work, and I spent some time in my studio (hooray for me!!!).  I even managed to complete a few projects and challenges!!!  My first post is for two challenges both of which are back to school!  Simon Says & Kraftin Kimmie both had a "back to school" challenge this week.  The deadline for the Simon Says one is today and the Kraftin Kimmie one is Friday.

For this card I started with the Kraftin Kimmie stamp "Computer Nerd" and stamped him with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured him with copic markers(E0000, 00, 01, 02, 13, 21, 23, 25, 27 & 50 - BG 0000, 70, 72 & 75, N0, 01, 03, 05 & 07 - Y32 Spica sky blue & gold).  I paper pieced his shirt and pencil cup. The patterned paper is all from the simple stories Aweso{me} paper pack.  I cut the image and mat out with spellbinders large & small labels and the arrow was cut out using the "all about a boy" die set.  I used memento espresso truffle to stamp the greeting (comes with the computer nerd stamp) and edged all the pattern paper with versa magic jumbo java ink. The gems are colored with prisma marker cocoa bean.

Well I think I covered everything for the card!  I will have a few things to post in the next week.  Sorry for the lack of posts lately!  We have been so busy with our store lately I haven't had much time for crafting.  Now that things a getting organized after the big move I can actually spend some time at home in my craft room.  Kit is very excited about this as well (it is also her room) and she likes it when I spend time in there with her.

Thanks for stopping by everyone and have a great week.
