Sept 2015 Blog Button Resized“Hey!  Look me over!  Tell me do u like what u see…”   So this card has been hanging around my studio for a week or so and that’s the earworm that’s been running thru my head every time I look at it.  And now it’s in your head – you’re welcome!  Aren’t you glad you hopped over from Diana’s blog?  Ha! 9-1-15Our theme this month celebrates Fall and Back to School.  Now I have to let you in on a little secret…  I’m usually the gal that suggests the monthly theme for our blog hop, and I’m the one who threw ‘Back to School’ out there.  So I sat down to create my card, and came to the abrupt realization that I have absolutely zero school-related stamps in my collection.  In fact, I have very few sets that would even be appropriate for kids!  (Doh!) I had a moment of panic until I stumbled upon my Pictogram Punches stamp set and saw the ‘You’re a Star’ sentiment.  I had an embossed piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock on my desk and went searching for a patterned paper to fit the theme and turned to my Cherry on Top DSP Stack.  Things were starting to gel, but the card just wasn’t doing it for me yet- it needed something else.  But what… That’s when I dusted off my Owl Builder punch and made a hooty little scholar to dress things up!  Some embellishing with the help of Bermuda Bay sequins and the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers gave it the finishing touch.

Dang!  I’m still humming the song – I think it’s about time to pull out the Purple Rain soundtrack.  Still one of my fav’s after all these years.  You’d better head over to Kathya’s blog before I start singing… ;-D
