School of Life

     All the kids are returning to school, fall is just around the corner, we celebrated Labor Day last Monday which seems to always be the unofficial end of summer and, as I'm watching the kids catch the school bus, I'm thinking of what a great education we get just from living life every day.  So, here's a salute to the school called "Life."



     This sweet image from ArtbyMiRan is perfect for this idea since she's carrying her books with her.  I colored her with my ProMarkers, then cut with an Inside-Outside Stitched Rectangle Die by Die-namics (MFT.)   I cut two more rectangles with dies from that same set and inlaid them all.  All of that went onto an olive green card base.  I fussy cut the sentiment and added it at the bottom of the image, then used one of my bowtie bows and three tiny pearls as embellishment.

     Tomorrow I'll have another DT card for the new QKR Stampede challenge and you know how much I love working with their digis!  Be sure to stop by.  You'll love it.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
