Rhubarb goes to school

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

Life is slowing returning to normal in our household after vacation. Today I went over to take care of my grandsons which is part of my normal Tuesday routine.

Aidin had baseball practice this afternoon so my day ended earlier than usual.
We had to drive to a field about 45 minutes from his house. They love north-the field was west and I live south.
So I dropped him off and my daughter-in-law who works west was picking him up. I went home. Whew-did you get all that.

Now onto my card for today. I made this one for the color challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week Julia was our hostess and she chose some great primary colors. Red, navy and yellow and turn it into a back to school card was our order.

I decided to use this new cute digital image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - Rhubarb goes to school. Korin has about 25 different Rhubarb images. One is cuter than the next. Check them out, believe me you won't be disappointed.

I colored him with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I went to my stash and found some ruler patterned paper from a scrap kit I purchased back in 2006.  The embossed school books are from We r Memory Keepers. It was another scrap kit that I bought years go from QVC

I added some navy blue rick rack and cut out some apples from some other patterned paper in my stash.

That completed my card. So until next time God bless...........

Some other challenges:
1.  The Use It Tuesday blog has a back to school challenge. We have to use stuff from our stash. This challenge was made for me. I used 2 different patterned papers, some embossed images all are anywhere from 3 to 8 years old.
2Shopping our Stash blog wants us to use either red, ribbon or roses. I used red and rick rack.
3.  2 Sisters challenge blog has a back to school challenge.
4.  Fairy Tale challenge blog also has a back to school challenge.
