CYCI #135 - School is Cool !!

Hello Blog land! 
Fall is JUST around the corner...... can you feel it?? 
There is a certain change in the air, life begins to shift to a different gear from the summer schedules (or, NO schedules!) and school is on the horizon! Some kids have already begun their school year!
Parents are celebrating and likely, kids are not, haha!

So this week over at Can You Case It, we are focusing on Back to School! - School Pride.... and my project focused on the people who deserve a little thanks! Teachers!
 Can You Case It



Teachers rock! My project is a school season thank you as they begin the school year! My Easel card holds a Tim Hortons coffee gift card (Canadians know EXACTLY how much we all love our Timmies!)  and any student will get an A+ for this on the 1st day back to school!

Creative goods used for this easel card:
Stamps (SU!) - Labeler Alphabet/Writing Notes/Sumthin' Sumthin'
CS: (SU!) Cherry Cobbler/Vanilla
DSP:(Simple Stories) Smarty Pants collection
Washi: (Simple Stories)
Tools: (SU!) note pad punch

I am loving the Labeler Alphabet stamp set from Stampin' Up!...... because sometimes you need to create JUST the right sentiment! 

Thanks for stopping by my simple little blog to check out this week's project - we LOVE seeing all your wonderful creations over at Can You Case It, so be sure to give our challenge the ol "college try".... and play along with us!

Can You Case It #133 - Green/Yellow/Neutral Challenge

How is your weekend going? I am posting in advance, because as we speak, I am in Northern Manitoba, Canada on vacation! I am back home at my mom's...celebrating my hubby's 40th birthday, my dad's birthday (let's not mention THAT milestone...haha) and my uncle's birthday!! We have ALOT of Leos in our mix! I will post pics of our fab getaway later... but for now, it's time for another challenge over at Can You Case It! 


 Can You Case It
Isn't this color combo sweet?
I used the following SU! supplies for my project:

CS: White/Crushed Curry/Old Olive
Ink: Daffodil Delight/Pear Pizzazz/Old Olive
Stamps: You've Got This/Gorgeous Grunge/Timeless Texture
Tools: Cuttlebug Embossing folder

I used a few embellishments from SU (washi and paperclip) and attached a brad from an old Bo Bunny collection....


I love the look of the splatter stamps... it gives the appearance of watercolour without the work! 

So let's see what this inspires YOU to create - please play along with us over on the blog (click on the challenge picture above - it will take you to the link!) and post your project! 
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
And thanks for stopping in!
