School Daze at Shop Pumpkin Spice

Without teachers there would be no class:
 
   I recently purchased My Mind's Eye "School Daze."  This collection is easy to work with; I made both cards from papers in the 6x6 pad...no stamping nor an electronic die cutting machine!  In both cards the banner sentiments, school house, owl, books, and apple were fussy cut.  I used one sheet of very vanilla card stock for the two card bases, and scraps of red card stock to layer in the first card.  I edged the pieces (in the second card) with a black ink pad for dimension.  I added glossy accents to the school house bell and windows, the owl's eyes, and the apple.

Teachers make the little ones count.

Now I have two cards on hand to write the girls' teachers a thank you note :)

Happy Thursday!

Such fun cards! Isn't it crazy when we don't stamp/use a die? I love when I make cards like that because I really actually play with paper!!
