A Back to 'Skool' Card For Oscar

Evening Everyone! And a Happy First of September! Just a quickie post tonight, no, honest! Thank you all so much for your kind words yesterday! It's really given me loads more confidence!! So much so, I've already made my card for my first challenge as a DT member! Which is really odd. Me, not only being on time but actually finishing something days before it's needed!! That can only mean one thing or possibly two...1 I'm not me, and someone's snuck in, in the dead of night and is impersonating me or, 2 I'm probably suffering from some kind of dreaded lurgie, as I'm NEVER on time for anything!! In fact, I've been sooo late going to bed some nights I've met myself getting up! (Oh...yeah, that was a mirror image..oho...sooo scary!!) and 3, Aliens paid me a visit again... (It's ok, I am me, I could never count!)
I made this card over the weekend. Tom my son-in-law, had asked me to make a card for little Oscar (a friends little boy, who's a bit like a nephew to him) who will be starting 'big' school next week. Easy I thought, as I knew I had some back to school type papers in my ScrapGirls (the tag) or Scrapwow folders somewhere but then Tom added, 'Can we have a little hedgehog on the front with a little rucksack on his back, carrying an apple?'
So, all last week I was pondering and then late Sunday afternoon just before they wanted to go home, I quickly drew this little hedgehog with a rucksack, carrying an apple for his teacher... I'm really pleased with it. Even though it took a week to think about and then about an hour to do! Penny Black? No, ((shhh!) Loony Lyn...just hope the fraud squad don't come knocking on my door!
The blackboard type freebie papers with writing on, I ended up finding in my Free Digital Scrapbooking paper file, they were just perfect! (The backing paper looks brown here but I may have been low on black ink or blaim it on bad lighting!)
Quick hello to two new followers!! (((Wave)) Janis from South Carolina with a lovely blog call Pause Dream Enjoy and another (((wave)) to Alysabeth from Canada with another fabby blog called Layin' Rubber Ink (who I've been following for a little while too!) pop over and have a look!
Back tomorrow, don't go away!

  4. Love the hedgehog and card Lyn, and, LOL, if my life is anything to go by, getting your DT cards done early simply means that you'll now have time to lose them before they're needed :P

  5. Oh no! Yes! Susan yYou are sooo right!! I will lose it, I just know I will!! Quick take a picture!! That's what normal people would do, but then I'll forget where I've saved it...or it will save itself in another folder!
