Hi Friends, 
Welcome to week two of  DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY, You still have some time to enter the back to school challenge for a chance to win these awesome pens.  I hope you get a chance to enter, I really love working with them and the customer service is great.  

  We have been having our typical beautiful end of summer weather, mid 70's, kid's are back in school and tourist season has ended.  Now I can get across town in 6 minutes instead of 45. I love it!! I have been so super busy lately with dinners and meetings and pretty tired at the end of the day, that I just find it hard to get working on anything to do with art except for the commissions I need to finish.  I am happy to say that I have been able to comment on blogs a little easier, if I go through bloglovin' for those of you that are on bloglovin'. There is really no rhyme or reason as to who, why or when I can comment on someones blog. If there were a pattern, I could figure it out, but there isn't-- maybe blogger is doing for commenting. Who knows. I am not going to take it personal, It is what it is.. I will just have to make the best of it and be thankful, after all today is Thankful Thursday. The good news, this past Saturday they opened the bridge that has been under construction for a couple of years. Yeah! that should relieve a lot of the traffic.

DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #116

THEME:  Back to school


I made four back to school cards -- a series kind of thing-   I really had crafters block on this one.  Once I started playing with the pens, the idea came to me. Back to school means fall is here and  I  just want to enjoy the last days of summer.  This past week the liquid amber in our front yard has dropped leaves and I am anticipating an early fall. A quarter of the  leaves on the tree have changed color

I used the Locker talk cartridge for the fun locker and lock image and then colored them in with Copic markers. How fun was this?  Lots

I did the same thing with the little milk carton

 For this chalk board I used DCWV chalkboard paper and the background was drawn with the CRI-KIT gel pen, then cut out I used a prismacolor pen to color in the areas that were drawn, I am very happy with these results

For the finally I just had to use my favorite color, again I used the copic markers on this one. I love that the Cri-KIT pens make the lines for me it is almost like a coloring book

Supplies used:
CRI Kits pens to draw all school images
A2 size True black card stock
Jenny Bowlin back to school bingo cards
paper trimmings (cc)
locker talk (cc)
Ribbon: 3 girl jam
