Blog Hoppin' Friday

Just in time for Back to School is our theme at the InStyle Stamps blog hop! I had a different project planned for today, but since we've been back to school 2 week's and a few days, my child is already home sick!! Yes, tonsilitis and this morning decided to add a little bit of vomiting to the mix just to keep Mom on her toes (even though we've been up most of the night)!!! LOL Poor thing, so I had to alter the plan a bit. But that's ok because I think it turned out fine.

This first cutie is one of the anime images from ISS, her name is Janice. I used her with the soon to be released schoolhouse. This little card will send them off to school on the right foot for sure!! I colored both images with my copics and cut them out to mount on the cardstock. I hope you like her.

My next cutie is Jacob. I made him a week or 2 ago and decided that since the other half of my project fell through, I would use him because he's perfect for our theme. I went over to Splitcoast Stampers and found this adorable little card. It's called a Stair Step fold or an Accordion fold, depending on the orientation of your project. This would be a Stair Step fold since it's landscape, but this fold can work either way - portrait or landscape.

Here are the blog hop details... We will be giving away a Grand Prize to one lucky Blog Hop participant and also have a prize for one lucky design team member. To enter, hop through the design team’s blogs (you can find them in my sidebar), and then go to the InStyle Stamps blog and vote for the designer who's project inspired you the most. (You're going to vote for me, right? LOL!) Then leave us a comment on that post in order to be entered into the drawing for the grand prize.

I also wanted to let you know that sadly, this will be my last blog hop with ISS. My DT term is over and I must move on. I have loved being on this team with all of these wonderful designers. I am grateful for the chance to create with this team and the experience has been invaluable to me. I love all my DT sistahs and hope to stay in touch!! Thanks for visiting my blog. Please come back later today or tomorrow to see what I have to show you.
