I can’t believe it is back-to-school time already. ***WOW*** Between the bad weather all July and having a rough time with my health, the summer just flew by! My son, Jameson, 8 years old, is back to school tomorrow in grade three (though this won’t publish until Wednesday) and he is a mix of excited, nervous and worried he will miss his baby brother and me. Isn’t that so sweet? I KNOW he will miss us at first but once he is back into his schedule, it won’t be so bad. To encourage him, I decided to make him a ‘Happy Back to School’ card and matching book mark. (ETA Tuesday night: He loved them and took them to school, not just chucked in his backpack but neatly tucked away in a special pocket!) In case you see my Copic colouring and think I’ve gone off the deep end, it is deliberately cartoonish to fit with the stamp style.
The design for the card is for “The Diedrich Dare”, the reincarnation of Twinkling Tuesdays. So now, as a Team Member, instead of a Twinklette, I am a DareDevil! The change reflects that the other Diedrich kids now want in on Madelynn’s Twinkling Tuedays. You haven’t seen any challenges lately because we took a break for the summer; I am so excited to get going again. In case you are new to my blog, this challenge started when Jessica’s daughter Madelynn decided to start drawing sketches like those she saw her mother using. A challenge Design Team was born! Participating this week are:
Be sure to visit everyone’s blog to check out their creations. I so hope you can join us this week; if you try it out, be sure to link to Whimsical Wednesdays; if posting to SCS or PCP use keyword DDSC1 (nope, not the same as the sketch, it is incorrect). To celebrate, just for linking up your project, you could win a prize from Marie of The Greeting Farm and Jessica; her new stamp set, “Butterfly Wishes”!!!
