Back To School......

not having any children I'm never sure when that is for us in the UK, but sure am happy when the kids are on school hols because the roads go quiet and you can get into my local Tesco's car park anytime you like !!

Anyhoo back in to the room...Back to School is the theme for our next House Mouse and Friends challenge for you  which Snoopy chose !!

So I had to be a bit inventive as I haven't any stamps which went with the theme so I made this cute backpack with loads of little naughty mice's having fun !!


The backpack card is made just using different coloured card adding faux stitching by pricking holes all round the edges and running a black pen over to look like stitching.  The mice have been stamped and coloured then each one fussy cut out





























The little chap doodling was holding a candle which I changed into a pen. Finished off with some yellow gingham ribbon for the straps and a few gold candy for the studs.

Hi Diane, what a fun and creative card!!! Love the bright primary colors you chose and all those little mice checking out every nook and cranny in the backpack. Your card is spot on, because here in the US, the backpack is the one thing the kids all love to get a new one and it is usually a monumental decision because there are so many different ones. Great job with the challenge, love it!!

Hugs
Sue

Gorgeous card Diane :-) I LOVE the backpack design, very clever, and the little meeces are super adorable :-)

I have to agree with you about back to school, they don't go back until the end of September here, the roads become quieter and its easier to park :-)
