A school...of fish!

It's Keryn's turn to set the dare at Daring Cardmakers this week here is what she says:

"Early next week all the children that have been on holiday from school in New Zealand for approx seven weeks will be returning to their new classrooms. Mother's will all be breathing a sigh of relief as their routines return to normal.


To celebrate this I want you all to create cards using the theme of school. If you've got children at school what they're up to might inspire your card, if not maybe memories of your own school days might be your inspiration."

I have to say that I was struggling with this one as I don't have children at school and couldn't think of a card theme that would let me use the card for anything else later, then into my head popped 'school of fish' and I knew that would work for me and the dare!

The image came from the Collage group on Flickr and I coloured it with Copics, paper and sentiment sticker are from a little 6x6 scrapbook kit by Papermania. Ribbons from stash.

  9. Lol!
    I don’t think was quite what Keryn had in mind when she set the dare but it’s a fab colourful card.
    I would never have thought of that in a million years.

    Thanks for joining us at the Daring Cardmakers this week.
