Goodbye Summer; Hello School - PSC89

Hello friends and Happy Wednesday.  Things are looking much better here at the Cat House.  Hehehe!  I think all the kitties are back to being well, although Corey has a visit scheduled on Thursday to get 2 booster shots.  Let's hope that getting him in the crate will go better than it did on Saturday - cause it didn't!  These little guys are just too smart to bamboozle them.  ;)  At least he's speaking to me again.

Time to show you what I've been up to for Perfect Sentiment Challenge this week.  Labor Day is just around the corner and for many that means the end of Summer and back to school.  This week we want you to create a card with either a Summer theme or a Back to School theme.  Don't forget to include your sentiment on the front.

I sure hope all the kids are ready to learn and have a fabulous school year.

For this card, the materials I used were:
  • Image - Paper Shelter - Learning is Fun
  • Sentiment - Computer Generated
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Groovy Guava
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Hopscotch
  • Accessories - Ribbon from my stash; Stampin Up Oval and Scallop Oval punches; I can't remember who the manufacturer is of the corner die.  I'll have to look that up.
  • Copic Markers - B91, B93, B95; E31, E33, E35, E37; E40, E50, E51, E53; Y21, Y17, YG01, YG21; YR00, YR02, YR12, YR15, YR24, YR82; Spica Gel Pen Gold.
 Our fabulous sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter.

Her images are so adorable, so make sure to check out the store and see what she has.  The Paper Shelter will be awarding a $20 gift certificate to one lucky random winner!

Now, it's time for you to get inky, so hop on over to the Perfect Sentiment Challenge blog for some inspiration and see what the rest of the Design Team has been up too.  Then get your stamps, ink, and papers out and see what you can come up with.  You could be one of the Perfect 3 this week.  Good luck!
