CARDZ TV Challenge #32 "Back To School"

Hi everyone! We’re back from our Summer vacation with some new,
 fun challenges,  and a new name!
We’ve divided our large Cardz TV Design Team into 2 smaller teams,
and we’re now Cardz TV Challenge Go-To Galz,
and Cardz TV Linky Party Go-To Galz!
We’ll be rotating every other week, so each week on Cardz TV,
 you’ll have a chance to enter our challenge, or link up to our linky party!
We’re really excited about this new format, and hope you’ll play along!
As always, we’ll use to pick a winner for each challenge or linky party,
 for Cardz TV Stamps and lots of other fun prizes! 

Create a card, layout or craft for back to school.
You have until noon EST, Thursday, August 8th, to post your name and a link to your creation
Many of you have asked, and no, you don't have to use Cardz TV Stamps to enter!

It's funny how the start of school is so different across the country
here in NY school vacation started the end of June
school doesn't start here until after Labor Day
but the stores are filled with back to school supplies
thought this would be a perfect card to slip in a backpack the first day of school
cut file from
some papers from my scrap pile
Tim Holtz fired brick distress ink
sentiment from
Mary some great new stamp sets in the store
you really need to check them out
