Anything Goes at The Paper Shelter

Well, bit by bit I'm learning to let go... There are some things in life that honestly don't matter that much. It may seem like the end of the world at the moment, but in the greater scheme of things, it is just a moment. Don't get me wrong, there are things that we need to stand up for. Be bold and strong about... but let me have discernment what is important and what is not :)

Relationships for example - these are very important! I want to be the very best child of God, wife, mom, sister, daughter, aunt, friend I can be. Without love, we are simply noise makers lol. I admit, I have a lot to learn, but praise God, He's given me that desire.

Which reminds me of school :) For some reason, I just love anything to do with school. The colors, the images... you name it, I love it! So when I realized that I could create a school themed card for this week's Anything Goes Challenge at The Paper Shelter, I was doing the happy dance :)

This is based on Regina's 'Wheels on the Bus' card at The Cutting Cafe HERE. My card features a cute digi from The Paper Shelter, 'Learning is Fun.'

I've used the Thanks Teacher ABC 123 Background Printable Stamp as well as the apple image from the I Love School Stamp Set by TPC Studio. I created the 'writing paper' in my Silhouette Software and cut out the layers to the card front with my Silhouette as well.  Can you tell I am in  L - O - V - E  with my Silhouette?

I ALSO used my Silhouette to cut out Learning is Fun digi image and colored her up with the following copics:  Y38 Y15 Y13 Y11 Y00; E37 E35 E34 YR21; E11 E00 E000; RV04 RV02; B18 B16 B14 B12; E33 E31 E30; C9 C7 C5 C3 C1; R39 R29 R27 R24 R22.

I pulled out my trusty Diamond Glaze to create an easy glass look for her lenses, and gave her a bit of bling using Stardust Stickles.

As always, my cards are adhered with Best Glue Ever : ) I love this stuff...

Please join us for this week's EASY Anything Goes Challenge at The Paper Shelter, but not all of you cuz I won't be able to do anything else but comment all week (just kidding!!!).  Here's what you could win:

Anyone who plays along using a TPS image will be eligible to win a $30 Gift Voucher - yay!!! If you use another image, you can still win 3 images of your choice!

Is it just me, or is this week already flying by??? Just wondering lol.

Have a wonderful crafty week, sweet friends

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
