MCT ~ Designer Challenge ~ "Back To School" Theme

Good morning friends, today is another Designer Challenge over at My Creative Time. This time challenge is hosted by the sweet and talented Miss Cathryn. She has chosen the PERFECT challenge ~ it's a "Back To School" challenge! You can click here for all the details.
 Well this challenge fits into our life just at the right time. This coming Monday my son will be heading back too school. I can't say we had the best summer vacation this year but we did spend a great deal of time together and that is what truly matters.
For my card I decided to dust off that Cricut! Yes ~ you heard me right! I do have the Silhouette but I have yet to figure that thing out! That is okay because I had to use one of my favorite cartridges ~ Doodlecharms. It has such CUTE images and I have always wanted to cut the apple from it. I didn't want to use the leaves it came with because Emma has the BEST leave dies for that! Let alone all her stamps and other dies! I could help adding stuff to my card today... so many fun My Creative Time products to use!
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI and Recollections
Ribbon and hemp
Ink ~ Archival and Stampin Up
Okay that is it for me today! Thank you again for stopping by! Have a WONDERFUL day!

  7. Wow, you did an amazing job on this fabulous card! The papers are perfect and just adore the cute apple! I really need to dig that cartridge's been a LONG time since I've used that! I am still figuring out the silhouette to and find it much easier to go back to the cricut, lol! It is getting easier the more I use it though:)
    Good luck to your little man as he starts the new year!
