Clear It Out Challenge–Back To School Week 2

I can’t believe that summer is almost over and the kids will be going back to school shortly.  As most of you know, I work in a local high school and I have enjoyed the quiet days of summer but I’m really looking forward to having the kids back next week to fill those empty hallways with noise. 

I love my job and one of the things I love most about it is the kids.  I work with a lot of “at-risk” kids that come from highly dysfunctional families and sometimes we (at the school) tend to be the only positive influence they have in their lives.  It brings me such joy to be able to infuse some of that positivity into them.

For this challenge we were given a “Back To School” theme with the requirement of using chipboard.  I thought this image of a school house from the awesome Nikki at Limited Runs was just perfect for my Back To School card.






I used my copics to color it.

  • Wood Trim & Stairs – E13, E29
  • Brick – R24
  • Door – B93/95
  • Windows – B0000








I found an apple on google images and used my glossy accents to make a 3-D glossy sticker which I popped up on the ribbon.










I added a chipboard flag under the sentiment which can be found on the inside of the card.






And here is a full view of the inside of the card…



Don’t forget…you have one more week to play along (until September 2nd) and you can make any paper crafting project you like just make sure to follow the theme and stash item!  Check out the Clear It Out Challenge blog for more details.
