The Pixie Cottage Challenge & Passionately Artistic Challenge

Can you believe this is the last day of August? Wow this year is zooming
by isn't it! Two posts today~~~

First Post is The Pixie Cottage Back to School and /or the Sketch
Many of The Pixie Cottage Stamps & digis are able to be combined with others.
I used the digi A Place to Sit by Artish. You can find images, copics, papers and
much much more at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More!

Water colored the bench and my little Tilda, adding stickles to the metal
parts on the bench and partially cut it out. Drew and cut out some books,the
apple and a few for a simple Back to School card.

I layered the green and print stitching them together then punched the
edges with a MS dotted scallop. Cut out the cardboard A, punched the
sentiment and attached with a brad and added the buttons.

Supplies used: Bazzil & DCVW papers, water colors,
stickles, misc buttons & brad cardboard, A MS
punch and a Marvy tag punch

Second Post is for Passionately Artistic and our theme is Anything Goes
so be sure to stop by and join the Party.
My card for today is simple with no image just a sentiment. It is for
one of my husbands friends so didn't want it to be to girly.

Started with a paisley print and matted on a dark burgandy to
match the dp.

I stamped the sentiment then embossed and used chalks to add a little
color to match the dp. Using a old SU paisley image
I stamped a strip in brown and then added a couple
layers of narrow strips to each side. A little
bow and button completed the card.

I'm first 'cause I can't sleep! Your cards are both great but the Tilda is so "nerdie" looking with her braids and glasses. I hope she has a good first day too. Your hand drawn extras are perfect!

Love and blessings, Martha
