MCT Head of the Class Blog Hop

by Veronica

Hello! You've probably come here from Kim's blog. If not, you can start this awesome Hop from the beginning at Emma's blog.

Back to school already?!?! Didn't summer just begin? I don't have kids quite yet, so the "Back to School" season doesn't affect me too much - other than the fact that one of my very good friends is a teacher, so when she gets back to work, I lose my daytime running buddy.

My brother and his family just moved last month, so my seven-year-old niece, Evelyn, will be starting at a new school this year.


This card features the NEW pencil die included in the Love to Learn die + stamp set (available right now!). It works so well with the past MCT goodies I've used on this card, too:

Alpha Pack (sentiment)
Fun Letter Background
Get Schooled (paper lines)

This release isn't JUST for "Back to School", though. I've used the new Uppercase Fun Dies for a birthday card for The Hubs.


The story behind the card:
Many moons ago, my brother was later-than-usual coming home from a party. My Mom and I were paging him (remember, I said MANY moons ago) for hours and when we finally got a hold of him, his response was that he was "d@#n near 21" and that we shouldn't be worrying so much about him. That phrase has stuck with my family since then.

The Hubs will be 29 in September, so this 'family phrase' is perfect for his "nearly 30" birthday card!
*************************

Along with the Uppercase Fun Dies, I've used:

Alpha Pack ("YOU'RE")
Social Media Dies ("@#")
Stitched 4x6 Journal Die ("30")
Stitched Decorative Banner Dies
Bunch of Fun Circle Dies
What's Growing On? (mustache die)

    1. Thanks, Katie!

      The background on Evy's card is just using SU!'s Whisper White Craft Ink. The ink pad is running low on ink, so I think that's why it looks so 'chalky'. LOL.
