Back To School Word Shaped Card

It's THAT time of year again when the garden vegetables decide to reach their peak of ripeness - all at the same time!  Thankfully, I did the last of the peas and beans yesterday, and I started on the carrots today, as you can see by my orange hands.  : (  

I didn't even realize that September was here until the "Back To School" challenge at BBTB2 appeared on my dashboard.  Ooops!   I needed cards ASAP and in desperation went with the old standby, a shaped word card, that I could personalize for the DGDs.

So, here's the generic version featuring a book carrying bird from the '3 Birds on Parade' cart and the phrase, LOL, comes from the "Back to School layout" from the 'Family Album' cart.  I cut the welded shadow twice so that I could line the interior of the card with some old, old, paper from DCWV .

I will post S's Hermione version and G's Kitty version after they've been delivered!

I am of course, linking my card to the BBTB2 challenge here.  Go see who else used the 'Family Album' cart!   So many different projects from this cart, and it's no wonder that it's one of my 'go to' carts.    Thanks for visiting today.  Off to visit / inspect the new house and see if all the siding is on!   : )  Christine


  1. Love how you incorporated the pencil and apple into the words - why didn't I think of that??? great cards, I want to see the others too. thanks for sharing your creation with us at Bitten By the Bug2 this week.

  2. Definitely NOT generic in any way! Love the pencil and apple as part of the word!!!!! And the bird with the books and backpack is the bomb….I need to use him for some kind of project soon. I agree that the Family Album cart is great and very versatile-I've been using it for a ton of projects lately. So glad you joined us at BBTB2 this week!!!

  3. Great job on this card. I love the shape card and how you added the pencil and apple. Just adorable! Thanks for joining us at BBTB2.
