Delightful Challenges Back to School

Back to School Challenge

This week we are celebrating...
Back to School.

It wasn't all that long ago that my children were in school.
I couldn't wait for the Back to School Time.

This week our sponsor is...

For this challenge I am using

Here is my card.

I colored this with a combination of thing.
Copic Markes
E25, E31, R29, YG25, B05
Prismacolor Pencils
PC935, PC1054
Gel Pens
Gold, silver and black

The lunch bucket and scissor die cuts were cut using
Sure Cuts A Lot
and my Cricut.

The image and sentiment die cuts
are Nestabilities Big Rectangles.
The edges of the die cuts are chalked
with Aquamarine Color Box, Cat Eye.

I used the We R Memories Envelope Punch Board
and matching paper to make the envelope.
When I print the paper I end up with a margin around the edge,
which prevents me from cutting the paper for the envelope to the given size for an A2 card.
So I cut the paper at 8" x 8", and score at 3.5" and it comes up just right.
I find that the size they give on the board is a bit to big...
but would most likely be GREAT if you had a ton of embellishments and needed
that extra room.

The gems were from my stash.  

Thanks for stopping by
May your worries be few
And your crafting days be long.

And the twist is...
to include a Gnome.

Digital Delight's,

Copic Markers

The paper is from 
from Digital Delights.

The daisy is from 
Recollections Signature Special...
from Micheal's. 
The daisies didn't have any leaves, 
so I cut them on my Cricut from 
an SVGCuts 3 D flower set. 

The scalloped border was a free file I found
on the World Wide Web...
sorry I don't know where the file was from.  

The clouds are cut on my Cricut 
using Sure Cuts A Lot...
they are within the SCAL program.  

I used my Big Bite and added eyelets
to the sentiment...
which made up....
seems like it fit.

At the end of this challenge,
their will be a new blog owner at Fat-tastic Tuesday.
The challenge will be closing down for 2 weeks while 
the new owner makes changes.

Guess we have to wait and see what those changes will be.
I love Fat Pages, but depending on the changes made...
this may be my last Fat-Tastic Tuesday post.

with raffia.
Well I happen to have some raffia
