MyGrafico Challenge Monday

Good Morning - Happy Labor Day!! I hope you're enjoying your nice long weekend.

Did you have fun last week with the week of prizes at MyGrafico? I know Martha and the design team had a blast with the blog hop! We are back to our weekly challenges and we have 2 new design team members!

So this week's challenge is Back to School. We used an adorable stamp set that can be found here. When I made this card my kids exclaimed "Madeline!!" and that is what she reminds me of, too.


I used a black base for my card. My sister is a 2nd grade teacher so she can get all these really neat school items that are great for cards, she sent me these self-adhesive library pockets and cards. That provided a cool embellishment and sentiment for my card. I tried to write the sentiment like Kristina Werner does - she does a way better job than I did! The alphabet background paper is actually another digi that I got from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. This card will be going to another special little girl I know that started Kindergarten.

Be sure to visit the MyGrafico Challenge blog for all the details of the challenge. Then sit back and relax while you visit the other design team member's blogs to see what adorable projects they have for you. I've seen some and you're in for a treat! As always, they are linked in my sidebar.

As for Sunshine Mondays, Janice and the design team are taking a little break while we gear up for the new release that's coming soon. Stay tuned for that!!

Thanks for stopping by.
