The Pixie Cottage Challenge #33 - Back 2 School

It's another Once Upon A Wednesday at The Pixie Cottage and we have another fabulous sketch from Pam.
Sadly Pam has had some health issues that have forced her to step down from creating cards for us but she has a lasting legacy here as she created many wonderful sketches and we will continue using them to honor her time with us.

The challenge along with the sketch this week is a great one, "Back To School".
If your children haven't already gone back then they will be super soon and it's the perfect time to celebrate the upcoming school year.

You don't have to use a Pixie Cottage Stamp to enter but if you do have why not try out!
Remember you can use the sketch, the theme or both and can combine our challenge with any others you like!


Twisted Thursday - Back to School and Yellow
Frosted Designs - Back To School
Character Cafe - Glaze
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Stampin For The Weekend - Anything Goes
Stamp Insanity - Button Up Buttercup
Ellephantastic - Male Project
Stempeltraeume - Card for a Man (mine is for a boy)
Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes plus Yellow
One Stitch at a Time - Say it With Shapes
Crafty Ho's - Photo Inspiration (I did Back to School with it)

Card Recipe:
Image - Udderly Adorable Boy by Alisa Ramirez
Paper - DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Acrylic Letters - Recollections
Buttons - Stash
Sentiment - Printed

I think this little guy really is "adoraBULL" and I added Glossy Accents to his hat to make him super awesome!
I hope all your little ones (and bigger ones too) have got over the 1st Day "Gitters" and are back to enjoying learning and being with their friends.
Be sure to use a little of that time you have on your hands (yeah right Mom's?) and come and show us your creations.
