Even Snakes Have to Go To School

     (Edited to add: This is supposed to be my post for Thursday but since one of the challenges is closing in just a couple of hours, I'm posting this now to get it all linked up, and you get to see it early.)

     OK, that post title should have grabbed your attention!  :-D

     We're all thinking about autumn and back to school time.  That means shopping for school clothes and supplies, and brings to mind the old "Apple for a Teacher" idea.  This wonderful, friendly little snake has that idea in mind, even if his morning appetite got the best of him before he managed to deliver the apple to his new teacher.  Sure hope the teacher has a sense of humor.   The image came from QKR Stampede, where they have a "Back to School" theme for their challenge.

     Colored with ProMarkers and die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  The dp for the mat and for the background are both from my scrap stash, probably originally from an old DCWV scrap booking stack.  Both ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I wanted this to be CAS so decided on no embellishments other than the ribbons.

     I leave in another 2 days and am still trying to get ahead of things so that I have time to pre-schedule a couple of posts but that may not happen.  I'll be without internet from mid-morning on Friday until at least Sunday evening, but then I should be back on line and able to visit with all of you again.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
