Blogger Challenge - Back to School

Wow it's been a few weeks since I've done the Blogger Challenge but this week I got new stamping goodies and I specifically bought some stamps to make Coleen a "Back to School" card which just so happens to be this weeks BC Challenge.  How convenient was that!

Be sure to join Lisa (Splendiferous Creations) for the BC Challenge.

I am using the Sweet Sunday Sketch for my card so will be posting this card for that challenge as well.


Here is my card:

Stamps: Unity - Itty Bitty (Back at It)

Card Stock: SU - Colors, Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, Lavender Lace (retired) and Whisper White.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers.
Circle Dies - Nestabilitie.
Fishtail Dies - MFT
Embossing Folder

For a change I also decorated the inside of the card:

Sorry about the lighting.  For some reason now I can't seem to get decent lighting to take pictures of my cards.  I'll keep trying though.


  1. Great card! And I am so glad to see you are posting on your crafting blog. I really miss your wonderful creations!
    Hope all is well, Ida! Hugs!!!

  2. Ida-happy to see you 'back at it'!!! Wonderful card-love that sentiment!

  3. Love both your fun cards and especially how you have multi coloured the backpack in the first one! I would have loved a bag like this at school.... but I don't think backpacks were around then lol.

  4. Just adorable, Ida! Love the fun multicolored backpack. Hope Coleen has a great school year!

  5. Hi Ida! Rarely do I see something on a blog that I must have but I just went and purchased this stamp...it will be a great one to own! LOVE your card!

  6. Adorable!! I love how you colored that first back-pack. SO eye-catching! :)

  7. this is a great back to school card Ida-I love the back pack image and the bright colors you used on it-I am sure Colleen loved it as well-hope everything is ok in your neck of the woods

  8. Boy, that says it all, doesn't it? It's the perfect back to school card. You know I hear you about the lighting. Frustrating!

  9. Great design! Very clean and beautiful. Love!
