KJ235, RRBC30 and FMS198

DSCF1193

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Another thank you card….almost through my list…this one incorporates the Kraft Journal’s Back to School challenge; the By The Numbers challenge at Retro Rubber:

RRCB20

and the Freshly Made Sketches sketch:

I have to give a nod to my stampin’ pal Linda Callahan, as she inspired me by her card here!!  I took a little different tack with my back-to-school theme!

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Something to Say Thank You Stampin Up

I used some diecut letters and numbers that I received long, long ago from another Linda, and using dsp from Schoolhouse, I stamped the sentiment from Something to Say in Smoky Slate ink.  I also used a ruler embossing folder that I am embarrassed to say, have maybe used once, but it seemed appropriate for the “numbers” challenge!  Finally, some denim ribbon and three gold stars finished it off!

And it is in the mail!

John is tired of losing electricity out here in the country, and finally bought a generator, so there has been lots of digging and dismantling as he wires it up to the house.  Of course, Cassidy wants to “help”!  Here, she is stacking up the bricks as John takes them out of the patio:

We all thought the final effect looked like a zipper!

More later…..today, we’re off to the Herr’s Potato Chip Factor Tour!  Enjoy your day!

Your card is perfect for our challenge and great for the upcoming school year as well. Don't you just love how you can find the perfect use of something that you haven't used in a long time? That's my #1 excuse for my craft hoarding! Thank you for playing along with Retro Rubber this week and hope you will play along again soon.
