Back to School Blues



I'm so excited that I've gotten to play in a bunch of challenges so far this week. Love that! I made this card for Mercy's Sketch #90 and the "Back to School Blues" challenge (school theme with the color blue) on the MFT Forum. I really need to get more of these PI girls....they're so cute and fun! I also really need to get some of that cool baker's twine I keep seeing all over blogland. I used yarn for my card since I don't have any baker's twine...yet, lol! The smaller green apple is up on foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by!
