School Days!

Happy Tuesday!! Welcome to my little corner of the world!! It's time for another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog! This week's hostess is my very talented friend and DT sistah Kecia! And, since it's officially autumn and the kids are all back in school, Miz Kecia has chosen the theme . . .

"School Days""

What fun . . . especially since Sassy Cheryl has a bunches of adorable "school days" images!!  Here's what I came up with . . .
Hey look . . . it's Max!! I decided to make a "boy" card this week . . . and kept my design rather uncomplicated!! This sweet Sassy Cheryl image is called "Backpack Max" and is available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's online store! There's also a delightful little "Maddie" version HERE

Here's a close up of this studious little fella . . .  
And a bit of a side view . . .

Pat, my darling, you have created another stunner. I love the soft blue checked paper and then you added a perfectly colored Max with his books. I swear you used just the right shades to color this with. Absolutely gorgeous. Welcome back.

Ms Pat, I love this card and the blue and white check dp is so cute I can't stand it. The red and white check ribbon really is perfect too. Your coloring is always stupendimous ( add that one to the dictionary ) and always a joy to come and visit your wonderland of beautiful works of art GF.
