You Look Familiar; Did We Go To Different Schools Together?

Pin It

Hey, everyone, it's "Be Late for Something Day!" Well, you can count on me to do my part: I've been late all day!

ONward Hoarding-Card-Makers:

Today's card project was created for Allison's "Suggestive Sunday" blog challenge. This week, Allison's theme is "back to school." Yikes, please don't make me go!

I stamped my alphabet image on this cute l'il blackboard using Pigment ink and heat set.

I covered my card base with some kewl old Rusty Pickle chalkboard paper, added the cover from a little composition notebook, and adhered two metal edge tags connected with ball chain.

Finally, I tied ribbon around three vintage pen nibs and added some silver stars to the chalkboard.

And I'm not really opposed to going back to school ... it's just the principal of the thing!

Thanks for swingin' by ... and don't forget, you've only got a few more hours to get your Y.ou Y.ou R.ock "Heavy Metal" challenge entry posted!

How cute! The pen nibs and tags and that slate are all awesome. Very well done my dear.

The pen nibs are vintage, then I must be vintage. We used these pens back home when we were in school.

I am with you on going back to school. I want to be a little kid again, if I can retain all the knowledge and don't have to go back to school :-)
