Vintage School Days
The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called VINTAGE SCHOOL DAYS, which is so timely because school has either just started or will be starting next week pretty well everywhere. My five-year old Granddaughter is heading to Grade 1 on Tuesday and boy is she excited, especially after spending all day Thursday shopping with her Mommy for new clothes and school supplies.
We want you to make a vintage or shabby chic card with a school theme and we will choose one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge. The Design Team will also choose their Top Pick and that creator will also receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.
I think this card inspired by the 50s image is fun and best of all I managed to make it flat so I can actually mail it without robbing a bank to pay for the postage. I do want to warn you that the next few cards you will see from me are going to be pretty simple in their design because I am heading off on a vacation and had to rush to get all my cards done before I leave. With the dreaded bookkeeping job that has taken so much of my time and a wicked migraine this week, I really did not have time to think about my designs. But some good has come out of this - the headache is finally gone thanks to a lower barometric pressure, I got the cards done, the bookkeeping job will just be part-time when I return and I am off to England and Rome - woo hoo!
