School is in!!

Today marks the first day of school for my two kiddies!!  My son is starting his last year at elementary school in 5th grade, my daughter is in 2nd grade.  They both went off this morning with all their new supplies, healthy lunches and smiles!  I came home to a seriously Q-U-I-E-T house!  

It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge from Clear It Out Challenge!  This week we have a new sponsor and a newer, but returning sponsor!  LOL  Our sponsors this week are Di's Digi Stamps and ZapPow Designs!  

My images come from ZapPow Designs this week!  If you have young children, you know what inspired the first card!  The paper is from Carta Bella - True Friends and I colored with my Tombow Art Markers, added some enamel dots, stickles and a little bit of twine to finish it off!  I used the current sketch from MFT Stamps for the design.

The next one I feel like I need to provide an explanation for!  LOL  I'm originally from Detroit Michigan.  Our hockey team, the Detroit Red Wings, won several Stanley Cup Championships in a row in the late 90's.  They adopted a giant purple octopus as their mascot, used it at games, celebratory saw this guy EVERYWHERE!  Well when I saw this cutie, I just knew he had to be purple!  This one is also from ZapPow Designs.  Colored with Tombow Art Markers, a couple enamel dots and the paper is Dots & Stripes by American Crafts.

I hope you enjoyed these and be sure to enter your Anything Goes card into our challenge!  Also be sure to check out our sponsors!  They have super cute images!!
