2B or Not 2B...

Back to School
The Play Date Cafe colours this week just reminded me of the old yellow grey lead pencils we used to use for school, which fitted right in with this weeks Back to School Challenge at The Pink Elephant - with a bit of teacher humour - and turned this Freshly Made sketch on its head!  If you don't use 2B pencils in your corner of the world, this card will probably make no sense what-so-ever LOL!

Stamped the pencils with Paper Smooches Smarty Pants and sentiment using Alphadots.  Papers are a mix of MME School Daze and October Afternoon.  Added Copics N3 Neutral Gray and YR18 Sanguine to make the pencils.  The card base is Bazill A4 cardstock - a fantastic weight cardstock, perfectly smooth for cards :)

We've been back to school for a few weeks now - finally looking forward to some warmer weather!


  1. what a fun card...totally love how you used the letters...great idea.

  2. Love how you 'extended' the pencils :) You are free to take our warmer weather - we are definitely done with it & I'm ready for fall!

  3. This is just fab! I love those little pencils and I love how you've made them look longer, so fun! Thank you for playing along with us over at The Play Date Cafe!
