I Know I Say This Every Week But...

 Thank goodness it's the weekend lol  Even though it was a short week (with the bank holiday) it has seemed like a long week at work cos we have been so short staffed & busy.  The week started well though as I had a stall selling my handmade jewellery at a Body, Mind & Spirit Festival (very interesting) & I was so chuffed to sell quite a few things & get lots of positive feedback :D I will be putting some more photos on my Jewellery Blog when I can find the time :)

Oops I forgot to smile ;)
Anyway on to this weeks Di's Digi Challenge which is "Back to School".  I made this card for my lil granddaughter Aibigail who starts "proper" school next week, moving up from nursery.  The image I used is called "School Days" & I coloured it with ProMarkers, cut it out & added it to an oval die cut out of cloud paper (both papers are digi & from Zoe Pearn at The Sweet Shoppe).  I finished off with a bow, gems & computer generated sentiment.  This week we have a prize package for Sweet Stamps up for grabs too!

The challenges:
Creative Belli - Back to School (I've had the heart gem & bow ages)
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl - Back to School!
I Love ProMarkers - Anything Goes
Fussy & Fancy - Back to School
CAS-ual Fridays - Back to School (CAS)
Pixie Dust Studio - The Bell is Ringing

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you're up to - I'm catching up with some crafting while hubby's playing footy this afternoon & tomorrow morning & tomorrow afternoon we're going to meet Stu (youngest son) for a bit to eat (hooray no cooking!).

Nice image and I like that you've made a card for a new school rather than just the start of a new year. Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays this week :)
