Gettin' Ready for Back 2 School!

I'm determined to not be such a procrastinator!  So for this week's Peachy Keen Challenge, I made a  Back to School card for my daughter's 6th grade teacher for the first day of school.

The Peachy Keen Challenge #25 is to make a card using chalk.  You can find that challenge here.  This was really challenging to me, because I've hardly ever used my chalks!  I love them, but they're one more of those items that get put away and not pulled back out for a while.  But I'm glad that was the challenge this week.  Maybe I'll use them again a few more times before I put them away again.

I used Stampin' Up! chalk for the rosy cheeks of my backpack (cut with Cricut's Locker Talk cartridge) and on the alphabet background (Stampin' Up!).  I inked it with Versamark watermark ink, then rubbed the black chalk on it to reveal the letters.  This was a new technique for me--I had read about it, but this was the first time I'd tried it.  I think it worked pretty well!

The other supplies I used are Bazzill cardstock, twine from We R Memory Keepers, button from  my stash, brads from Paper Studio, "ABC" stamp from TPC Studio, and of course the cute Peachy Keen Stamp from Wide-eyed kids set.

Now pull out your chalks and give it a go--see what you can come up with and enter it in the PKS Challenge #25 here.


  1. Cute card! Love the primary colors :)

  2. Love your card. I like when faces are added to objects other than people or critters.

  3. Sweetest backpack ever! Thanks for entering your project at Peachy Keen's Challenge this week.

  4. Too, too cute! Thanks so much for playing along with us for the PKS Challenge!
