Mudpie Goes Back to School

The House Mouse & Friends Challenge #202 is "back to school" so I used this fun image of Mudpie testing his pencils before the big day :) I colored him with Copics, and matted with chocolate chip and gold cardstock, using a mustard colored cardbase. The school bus border was cut from designer paper, and the pages at the top were snippets of scrap paper where I used a spiral punch on one, and stamped them both with a CTMH stamp set. I used a copper ribbon brad with a snippet of coordinating ribbon and made a little file folder using probably the first punch I ever bought - a McGill file folder punch. I wrote Mudpie's name on the slot, added a rub-on of music notes and a sticker that says "Discover."

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!

I don't know of many people (or meeces) that are as prepared at Mudpie. You did an amazing job with this challenge. Love that file folder and your buses. Have a wonderful day. I don't know about your area, but it is brutal here today with the humidity. I went out to cut a couple of flowers in the side yard and came in five minutes later dripping wet. Stay in and be careful.

There's so much to discover on this delightful card! It looks as if Mudpie will need new supplies before school even starts!
