CASology #265: EDUCATION

Hello, friends!  School is back in session here in the U.S., so our cue this week at CASology is rather fitting!

I am now officially back to work for another school year...my 23rd year working as a school psychologist.  I believe education is important for everyone, no matter who you are, where you are, or how old you are!  I'm still learning new things, and I hope to keep educating myself throughout my life.  I stress the importance of education to my kids all the time, and I don't just mean "book knowledge."

On a lighter note, I do like to send some notes of encouragement to my little nieces and nephews as they return to school each fall.  This little note is headed off to my nephew who is starting second grade this year!

I dry embossed the frame in the center of my card using a tan rubber mat and a wonky stitched die...I love the dimension it adds to an otherwise flat card.

Stamps: Paper Smooches (Sentiment Sampler, Smarty Pants)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Dies: MFT (Wonky Stitched Rectangles)
Other: black striped washi tape

What does EDUCATION bring to mind for you?  I can't wait to see how you interpret the cue card this week!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the clever ways our Design Team and Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week, too!

  1. Great quote from Nelson Mandela! Your card is so cute, Judy! I love how you embossed your focal point and how the whimsical font pairs with the notebook paper...Love your striped border, too! I'm inspired...Thanks!

  2. Congratulations on 23 years Judy!! This is a perfect card for a little boy. Your nephew is going to love it!

  3. I know your nephew will love getting his own mail, and this card is perfect for this back to school season. Our grandkids all started back yesterday and they were all looking forward to it, too!! What a great idea to dry emboss that wonky frame. I do love the dimension it adds...might have to try this technique again! Fun card!! Enjoy your work with all those kids. Bev
