Hasn't it gotten so cold?! I can't seem to be able to get warmed up at all - I'm sitting at my computer wearing a coat! lol! The evenings are fairly dropping down too, we're heading for winter!
I remember when I was young sitting in the classroom at the start of a new year, wearing my brand-new uniform with the stiff collar digging into my neck and the jumper that could stand up on its own and the sun beaming in through the floor-to-ceiling window and the sweat lashing me! This September seems to be a bit different to a few years ago, the weather has been horrible for the start of the new school year.
My gorgeous nephew had his first day of Primary School last week so I thought I'd make him a wee card;
The image is by Lili of the Valley and is called Back to School Boy. I coloured it in the colours of the Primary school uniform using the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Uniform; G99,YG97,67,Y19,17,15. Shoes; 100,W9,7,5. Bag; E37,35,33. Hair; E55,53,51. Plus W3,1,00,Y00.
The blackboard paper is from the Prima: Romance Novel pad and the green one is from the Bo Bunny: Blast Off pad. I used Spellbinder dies - Star circles, standard circles large and petite ovals large and a star Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The sentiment is computer generated and the stars are from the
Spellbinder Star Circles set - the large one is a die on its own and the
small ones are some of the bits out of the mat under the image. The
name on the stars is hand written. The SEI twiney-ribbony stuff is from my stash.
The inside is following the layout from the front and the sentiment is from LOTV.
I used this particular mat to follow on from what I made for him to give to his Play School teachers when he was leaving at the end of last year and I never managed to blog them, so here they are now:
The sentiment on the "lollipop" is computer generated and the one on the tag was hand written by Ryan himself! The ladybirds are ones I bought in Australia and the ribbon is that most-used ribbon from my stash!
And here he is with the whole set!
