Since this is my first ever blog hop that Ive been a part of, I want to celebrate by giving away a
$10.00 gift certificate for Mo's Digital Pencil!
One lucky winner will be selected and announced on August 14th...and all you have to do for a chance to win, is be or become a follower of my blog and leave a comment. Good luck!
Now on to my project...While I was making this card, I couldnt help but think back to when each of my children were just starting school for the first time...watching them wait for the "BIG" yellow bus with their bookbags at the ready and seeing the smiles on their faces as they
wondered what the day held for them. Oh, and lets not forget the joy they had to share once they got home.
Ready, set, go!
For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements. Potpourri Basket-school bus/shadow (pg 63), cut at 5 inches and Plantin SchoolBook-mixed letters and numbers, cut at 3/4 inch.
I also used three of the Mos digital pencil images that are just perfect for a school project.
The first image (Yale) far left was colored using the following Copic markers...Flesh-E000, E00, E01 and R20...Hair-YR20, YR23 and YR31...Outfit-YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, E35, E37, E44 and E47...Shoes-E53, E55 and E57...Bookbag/books-B21, B23, BV11, BV15, YR04 and YR07.
