Celebrate the Occasion!!!

Hello, again!! It's Celebrate the Occasion design team day!! What does that mean, you ask? Well, it means there's a new challenge over at CTO, and you, my friends, are asked to join in on the fun!! The challenge this week is "School's Out" and the card, LO, or project MUST contain an apple. Now, that was certainly a challenge for me, because I typically think of apples going in my beginning of the school year projects!! So, I thought and thought, and decided to alter a super simple card from the Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge to make it a summer card!! I think I'm going to give it to my best friend (a teacher) when she completes the school year. It has been a stressful year for her, and I'm sure she will appreciate this card! hopefully, she won't see it on here first!! LOL!! This is my card....



I added some white and black gel pen doodles, and re-named the books to SUMMER subjects! Of course, the Peachy Keen Face adds a little somethin' as well! I wrote this inside this super quick card...



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridge: Hello Kitty Greetings
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Sakura white Gelly Roll Pen
Sakura Black Glaze Embossing pen
Peachy Keen Stamps: Everyday Character Faces

Thanks so much for taking time to look at my project today!! Now, if I've inspired you, or even if I haven't....head on over to Celebrate the Occasion and link up your own School's Out project! We can't wait to see them!! :)

How creative! I love this so much! I just got the HK Greetings cart and was excited for THIS image because I'm a teacher and figured I could use it in my classroom somewhere at the beginning of the next school year. Now you're making me think about using it at the end of the year too!
