Peachy Keen Stamps Guest Designer week - Day 1

Hello my crafty friends!  I am so excited!!!!  I am finally home today after a long summer of travels for our family business...and what an awesome way to celebrate!  I am so in the mood to get crafting away and so happy to have the opportunity to be a guest designer this week for Peachy Keen Stamps!  I have had the chance to meet the Peachy Queen Kathy and she is just as sweet as her stamps are!

My kids go back to school this week and I am following along with the other awesome designers and going with the unplanned theme of the month....BACK TO SCHOOL.  :)

Today I have a fun shaker card for one of my children to share with their teacher.  I was at a small Bulk food store a couple of weeks ago and found a bag of Alphabet noodles and knew exactly what I wanted to do.   I love how perfect the Critter Face stamp worked along with the apple from the Faceless Fruit set.  I think it is just adorable!

I cut out the ABC border using the Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge and used the plastic packaging from a recent cartridge purchase to create a window for my ABC pasta.  A small bag of pasta goes a LONG way! (TeeHee...I see lots of similar cards in the near future)  A few pieces of foam tape along the edges of the frame and we have created a box to house the ABC's.  Then I threw together a quick little sentiment tag (I was thinking on the lines of "HAPPY NEW YEAR" when I wrote "HAPPY SCHOOL YEAR!"  My son doesn't think so as he is going into 6th grade....but my little girls are excited for another amazing school year to begin.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again tomorrow.  Have a Peachy Day!!!!

Your card is awesome. I have seen the premade round circle for the shaker card, but of course never thought to make my own. What a neat idea.
