Hey friend! I am so glad you came by. I am here with a new challenge over at The Ribbon Carousel blog and the challenge this week is Back to School! It is so hard to believe that summer is coming to and end and Autumn is right around the corner! I have already started to see the leaves turning here in Northeast Ohio, and must admit I am nowhere near ready. I know my sister would agree, having gone back to work as an 8th grade math teacher a week ago. This card is for her and for all you fabulous teachers out there. It is a hard job and one that doesn't get the credit it deserves! So, thank you!
Starting with a dark gray card base, I adhered a panel of gingham patterned paper from October Afternoon, as well as a tag, threaded with Cherry Divine Twine. I paper-pieced an apple from Paper Smooches Falling For You set and finished it off with a combination AC letter stickers and stamped sentiment from Word Up.
I hope you play along with us this week! Corinna is always so generous with the prize too, so please join us!
