IT'S SCHOOL TIME with House Mouse and Friends!

Schoolbus

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #79 - School Time
Using any of your House Mouse and Friends stamps create a project related to school. Click HERE to see all the COOL SCHOOL samples created by our design team and prize information. Also, the winner of the blog hop has been announced.

I used a layout from Splitcoaststampers.com Sketch Challenge SC296 for my card.


The little apple in the sentiment is stamped a 2nd time, colored, cut out and popped up on foam tape. I stamped a bunch of the sentiments from my A Muse School Time set all over the yellow cardstock with yellow ink. For pencil shavings I used Judi Kins Straw Speckles. FUN STUFF!
