FOSTV 36 - Back to School

It's Labor Day in the U.S. and last week I said my DH works most Labor Days.  Well, he surprised us and took the day off!   We have had a great weekend and now we are just hanging out at the house enjoying the day.

Our Challenge at FOSTV this week is "back to school".   Our kids have been back in school for 4 weeks now and I need to make some teacher, "thank you" and "appreciation" cards, do you?  Come join us HERE!  




I used MFP a Heinrich Co. - "Lesson Learned" for this card.  I stamped the chalk board on Kraft and then used Versamark and white EP for the sentiment so it would stand out better against the black chalk board.  I love this  Basic Grey "Oxford" DP.  It works great for masculine cards! I decided to go looking for a sketch when I went to create this card and found: Mojo Monday 256.

This stamp set will be given to one lucky player this week!
This week's FOSTV prize!
This is the stamp set I used:
