Divas by Design - Challenge No 10 : Back to school

Hello blogland

This is going to be a really, really quick post - I've been out with some girlfriends and it's waaaay past my bedtime, so no waffle tonight.

This is my DT card for the new Divas by Design challenge, with the theme of Back to School.  Our sponsor this time is Crafty Sentiments Designs - you really should pop over there, they have some gorgeous images.

The standard of entries to the Divas challenges never ceases to amaze me and I love looking at the blogs and your creations.

I made this card for Emily on her first day at Big School, and I think she even liked it!  She certainly said it was her on the card.

Lili of the Valley stamp, coloured with my Prisma pencils.
The papers are all a First Edition paper pad (I'm not sure of it's name, I'll check and update in the morning)
Martha Stewart punch
Buttons from button box and sentiment computer generated.

That's all from me, of the stairs I trot.

See you,


P.S. I've scheduled this, I do hope it works as I'm using the new Blogger interface and I'm not that sure about it!, It worked! and so onto linking to challenges.

I'd like to enter this into:

Sketch n Stash Challenge 69 - The image is my neglected stash, it's the first time I've used it since I got it a year ago - naughty me!

Clear it out challenge - Back to school

Make it Monday - Only just found you, but really like the idea of a linky party!
