Happy Thursday, peeps!  Try Stampin’ on Tuesday has a sketch and Back to School Theme this week:


I had made a card on Monday and posted it to Splitcoast Stampers using this vintage line of pencils; this panel was my “practice” piece, and when I saw the sketch, I retrieved it, trimmed it down a bit and created my card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Back to School

I used a Not Quite Navy card base and a piece of DSP from Park Lane; the image was stamped on Crumb Cake and colored in with markers.  I used a Darice ruler EF, and some cool natural rickrack I got at an local fabric store.  I cut out two of the pencils and adhered them to a Curvy Keepsake tag for the upper embellishment:


The sentiment is from And Many More.  Thanks for visiting today!

I took Cassidy to the little ice cream/candy store that just relocated to our nearest shopping center (that could be dangerous, right?!) and told her she could pick out any piece of candy she wanted!  She chose a little chocolate elephant on a stick and we sat in the ice cream cone chairs outside:




Enjoy your day!


  1. Love your card! Great colors, perfect for back to school! And a candy/ice cream store in the nearest shopping center to my house would be very dangerous. ;) Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Hope to see you again soon!

  2. She is growing so fast, look how she posed for the camera this time.
    I must say I missed the post about the cast, did she break a bone? Yikes.

  3. Awww, LeeAnne , she just brightens my day !!
    Thank you !!
    Hugs Frenchie ,

  4. Love your card and the vintage coloring of the pencil panel. Cute photos- it definitely looks like the arm isn't bothering her a bit- more like a pink accessory now. :)

  5. Those pencils are so cool and I love the way you colored them!! Looks like Cassidy is doing great!!

  6. Ooooh I love this LeAnne! Those pencil images are so cool! So happy to see a smile on Cassidy's face, and I bet on Grammie's too!

  7. This is so cute, LeAnne! Love all the colored pencils. :) I just can't seem to figure out cards with school themes, but you've done it perfectly. Thanks for playing with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
