This week's challenge at One Layer Wednesday is hosted by the talented, Ardyth at MASKerade. Ardyth does a fabulous job with CAS cards...and I love all the bright colors she uses! Once again, another challenge looking for "school related" cards! I really have no need for a school related card, but since Ardyth has told us that the theme for our card should not only be school...but include our favorite subject....YAY! I can make a card for this!
Okay...first of all....can you guess what MY favorite subject was? LOL!! Why...RECESS of course! That was my favorite time of the day. I don't think kids have "recess" per se anymore, but when I was a kid (many, many) moons ago, we were allowed to go outside to play for 30 minutes each morning and 30 minutes each afternoon (and sometimes a full hour in the afternoon!). Of course we were in school from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm...so it was a long day! Some of the friends I made during my early school years are still my friends today. Recess was an important part of growing up when I was a kid...you learned about winning and losing, playing fair, letting everyone have a turn, including everyone in whatever game we were playing, but most of all we learned how to play. Sometimes I think that the children of today have lost the art of "playing" unless it's connected to an electronic game!
But I digress....oh, yeah...my favorite class...RECESS!
The image and sentiment are from Flourishes. I stamped the image in black archival ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged in a little sky and ground with DI. I cut this card down a bit...the finished size is 4.25 x 4.25 inches.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are greatly appreciated!! Until next time....
