Back to School


Hi everyone, I'm back with my last card as guest at JUGS - Just Us Girls.
Thank you so much to the team for having me, it's been great fun!

The theme this time is 

The design team have some wonderful inspiration for you on the blog so I hope you can play along.

We don't really send cards for this occasion in Australia, so I was at a bit of a loss until I remembered this Paper Smooches stamp set.
I coloured the scientist with prismacolour pencils, fussy cut him and popped him up on foam tape for dimension. His fingers are paper pieced over the beaker so it looks like he is holding it.

The school's back sentiment was done on my computer and printed out on thin card.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Tic Tac Toe, I've gone with the blue red yellow diagonal

Allsorts, playing along with the anything goes option

Paper Smooches Great Chemistry stamps; versafine clair ink & clear ep; prismacolour pencils; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

This made me laugh. It does look like what you expect a science teacher should look like.
