School on Mars?

Good morning and happy Sunday everyone! Today's card wraps up the back to school theme with the up, up and away rocket ship by 2 Cute Ink Digital stamps. I just love the thought that maybe somewhere out there in the universe some mother is sending her child off to school. :-) This digi is not a traditional school stamp, but the minute I saw it, I knew I wanted to do a school card with it; especially since the rover recently landed on Mars.

I really wanted to do a sentiment that was related to Mars kids also having to go to school, but that just wasn't working out. So, I went through my buttons and found these fun school days buttons PLUS the little chalkboard. How fun! I knew exactly what I wanted to do with that chalkboard. Sometimes thinking outside the box *has* to go one step further. I used the Sharpie Paint pen in white for the writing. This is the oil based pen, not the water based.

Back to School

Happy Sunday everyone! It's that time again when we send out kiddies off to school. Here's a card that maybe won't make them feel so bad about it. I'm using the doggie backpack from 2 Cute Ink to celebrate their return to school and ours to sanity... Did I say that out loud? lol I also crumbled the "Back to School" paper because we all know this is what any paper that comes home from school looks like!

Supplies used:
Image - Doggie Backpack from 2 Cute Ink and typed words using DK Crayon Crumble font
Paper - Hobby Lobby cardstock, navy Stardream, School paper from DCWV
Other supplies - Spellbinders round & scalloped round dies, EK Success border punch, yellow and clear glitter glue (on backpack)

Hope you enjoyed this card. Don't forget to head on over to the 2 Cute Ink Digi Shop to take advantage of the 50% coupon code (2500FANS) before it expires today.

Have a wonderful day and happy stamping til the next time!
