Back to School

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.

Challenge #177

Theme ' Back to School'

The sponsor for this challenge is Creative CraftWorld with 3 x Promarkers To win our main prize you MUST use a product that's available in StitchyBear Digi Outlet by any of our creators.. Remember to put a # after your name so we can find you easily. You can still enter with a none StitchyBear Digi Outlet image but will be entered into a separate draw to win $3 to spend in our store.

This week I used the digi 'School Boy' by Priyanka of My Heart Pieces available from the StitcyBear Digital Outlet.

No story to go with this card, I am not a boy, I don't go to school and I don't stand on stools anymore in case I fall off :)

I invested in some wobbles while in the UK and the first one had to be used on this card - mighty impressed, what a cute dimension to cards wobbles make.  I should pay more attention to prices when shopping as I saw today I paid 5 pounds for the pack of 12 - is that a rip off or what for a bit of plastic cut into a spiral with a couple of sticky bits on either side.  Just checked the price in the States and see I can get 4 dozen for $24, working at 3 dollars to 2 pounds stirling that is about 8 pounds - ooooooo I have been ripped off once again by buying in the UK - naughty naughty Hobby Craft - maybe they should be sent to sit on the naughty stool!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I sooooo hate the silly high prices for items in the UK compared to other countries, no excuses - there are just some super greedy companies around it is not all down to taxes.  Moan over (I think) :)
