Fussy & Fancy - New Challenge

Hello Everyone....

Friday night has reached me already, and we have had beautiful sunny days, much warmer..but now the weekend is right in front of me the weather is about to turn..what a shame, I will have to forego the lawns and gardens and craft sad..[said with a big grin]

So here we go with a new challenge at...  Fussy and Fancy  ...and this week we are looking for "BACK TO SHOOL" I dont know about most kids, but this is what my youngest [now 35]..did every year until he was 9 years least..

He will kill me for telling

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils, this was an image I found on the internet and just loved it.

A closer look at the image, isn't he great...

Paper are Crafters Choice "Country Basics"...some hessian and number clothes pegs...counting down for the water works...

The sentiment is a 'TILE' font I have on my PC ..when having a browse just fell upon it.

And there's the card open, all decorated inside too...

Going to enter into a challenge at Simon Says [Back to school]
Digi stamps 4 Joy  [Back to school]

and...Inky Impressions  [Back to school]

So there you are, a fun challenge, hope you will join in with us at FUSSY AND FANCY this week..

Thanks for stopping by...will be back soonish....
