School Theme - CCEE

The challenge for the CCEE stampers this week was to use a school theme.    I colored this Squigglefly Shy Bear image and had no idea where I was going next with my card.  I grabbed my scrap bags and started digging for paper, this is what I came up with.  I know you are probably wondering how I ever passed Home Economics with this sewing.   Actually I am wondering that too.  ~grin~   Believe it or not, I actually made myself dresses in Home Ec and not one of them fell off of me due to defective sewing like the sewing that is displayed here.  What do you think of my Faux tag?  I thought it was nice for something different.    I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Shy Bear - Just a note card.   We would love for you to play  along with our challenge and don't forget to take a peek at what the team members have made for this challenge over at  CCEE Stampers Blog.

Thanks, for taking a look today.

  1. Great card, thanks for joining us at Polkadoodles, NJ X

  2. I just love your creation Shirley ! What a fantastic faux tag ! And I love your stitching too ! Great little Teddy... Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

  3. Oh, your Shy Bear is too cute and I love your faux tag.
    Just such a great card for the back-to-school challenge.
    Don't even talk about sis gave me a new sewing machine for using on my cards and I have one stitched card. LOL

  4. Such a cute little bear!!! Love the card style too!

  5. Too cute! And your sewing is just fine.

  6. Absolutely adorable card - love your stitching - looks just fine to me, Shirley! I told you you had a gold mine in your paper stash - look how wonderfully those go together!! Shy Bear looks like he needs some help with his pencil handling - LOL!!HUGS

  7. I think this is "sew" cute Shirley. I love the messy stitching, it just adds to the hand crafted look. You picked some great colors. I especially like how you used a circle behind the image panel and made it look like it's part of the tag.

  8. what a perfect image for this week's challenge and def. school inspired

  9. Well, Girlfriend, your stitching is by far better than what I can do! Jim bought me a new Singer sewing machine before Christmas last year and I have yet to try it out - not a clue even how to turn it on! I was excited to try and learn how to stitch on a card - and the only thing I'm doing is dusting off the dust cover! Anyway, back to your adorable card - I love Shy Bear - and he's colored wonderfully. Your faux tag is an awesome idea and looks grand!

  10. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week for the Pile It On "I Spy Something With A “P”” with us! Just loved your card, and hope to see you back here next week!

  12. I always love to see Shy Bear when you bring him out :D. I've loved the cards you make with him since way back. Love your clever tag, especially the paper you used for the circle.
    I was so BORED in sewing class in school - I made my first skirt and vest when I was 6 and never looked back, so having to make a little gingham smock type thing 7 years later did not impress me at all. I hate trying to get corners right on paper though, it's much less forgiving than fabric!

  13. Love your tag! Thanks so much for playing along with us at! I hope you join us again this week :)

  14. Awesome tag! Love the colors and that adorable image. Always jealous of someone that can sew!! Fab card!
