MIM#144 School Days with Nicecrane Designs

Hi, I forgot to do my post up for scheduling this morning and it's a public holiday here so have been doing washing etc and generally getting organised for our holiday. Still have to decide what I'm taking and get it packed!!! Hubby decided to pull the bedroom apart and vacuum everything (except my side of the bed where I have all my shoes, LOL. I have to find somewhere more suitable for them and then vacuum it myself)
Anyway I had better get on and publish this as I still have a load of washing to hang out.
Hubby is trying on old clothes and has just waltzed out in some really old large black and red checked dress pants wanting to know if he should take them. I've told him if he does he will have to get his own taxi and somewhere else to stay, LOL.
This week we are being sponsored by the wonderful Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs. I've chosen to use this sweet image of a girl reading.
Onto the card.......

SU Early Espresso cardstock for the cardbase
SU Island Indigo cardstock for the matte
I found all the different embellies on the net free. I enlarged the printed one to make my background and then used Tim Holtz inkpad to lay on some vintage style!
The stack of books were already coloured but I coloured the backpack
Image is from Nicecrane Designs  and is called Reading Girl
Copic Markers
DS tape roller
Foam dots


Ignacio is generously providing a $20 gift voucher to our winner!

Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!

It's  POTW  time
Okay that brings me on to one of my favourite jobs as a DT Member of Make It Monday and that is to choose an entry from last week. It's always hard to narrow it down but I have fun hopping around checking out different blogs while I'm at it.
So..... this week I'm featuring this sweet card from Jodi at Kaboo Designs   just love the image and fab design of this one!

and also this one from Cathy from Cathys Card Spot  love the cute bird. A fab CAS card.


Okay, your turn to dazzle. Sorry I won't be doing much visiting this week and I will be scheduling posts for the next couple of weeks so will miss doing POTW and commenting while I'm away.
