School Time

I LOVE a challenge!  Yes, I like it when I make a card and am able to enter it on a fantastic blogsite where the possibilty is I could win a prize, or better yet, have my project be seen by others!  But what I really LOVE is to find a blog with a truly inspiring and different challenge (one that forces you to think WAAAAY outside our usual comfort zone!)
Well, Some Odd Girl has found a way to do just that. And when paired with the great new card AND the layout challenge at My Mind's Eye, I was really working the ol' creativeness overtime.
                                         Inside reads:

Using an image from Some Odd Girl, I made a card for my grandson.  He (and by that I mean probably ME!) misplaced a stylus for his LeapFrog last time he spent the weekend. I promised I would mail it to him if I recovered it.  Of course, it was exactly where I had left it!  He loves when "Grandma" sends a card, even though they live a mere 40 minutes away. The real fun came when the challenge was to color an image to resemble someone in your own life!   When I enter this card at SOG, it will be shown side-by-side with my 5 year old grandson's
"First Day of School" picture, taken this past August here in Phoenix, Arizona.   How cute is he!
It was easy to follow the requirements for the My Mind's Eye card challenge!

Papers were from the "Complete Boy" and "Simply Delightful" My Mind's Eye paper packs, and two out of the three buttons from "Lost and Found".  Colored "Tobie"  with my Copics markers, popped up his little head, and done!

I also was able to enter these challenges :
