Celebrate the Date/back to school


This week's Play Date Cafe colors are yellow/white and red and I loved Suzanne's literal take on the houses and colors, click here to see her card. I am very literal and I was definitely inspired to think about yellow and red houses, and Kathy's super cute digital ones are so easy to work with, click here. Kah-Wink-e-Dink is having a primary colors challeng this week, so these colors work well for that challenge. There's a number of back to school challenges at the moment and I'd been meaning to make some more cards with my cute Treehouse digital school buses. So thanks Hero Arts, Crafty Ho's and Treehouse Thursday Challenge for celebrating school. Simon Says Stamp is doing songs this week and my youngest son is a huge fan of "The Wheels on the Bus," I can just hear him now shouting the song out at the top of his lungs. Cute Card Thursday is having a "whateva" challenge.

Materials: Treehouse stamps digital school bus, Kathy Martin digital houses, Hero Arts Clear design sentiment, PTI cloud stamped on graph paper, yellow patterned paper from stash, Red Stamping Up designer paper, black card stock, white gel pen, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, Brillance Moonshine white ink, Stampin Up black ink, Making Memories eyelet punch for tire holes, Stampin Up red card stock
