Freshly Sharpened Pencils
Call me weird, but I love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils almost as much as I love the smell of a new of paper pack from CTMH. Am I the only one out there that does? Okay maybe I am, but nothing reminds me more of Back to School than a row a freshly sharpened pencils. For this week's Back to School Challenge at Heart 2 Heart, I paper pieced a row of pencils, using Sunflower, Creme Brulee, Grey Wool and Blush Card Stock. I added Outdoor Denim B&T Paper, Cranberry Cardstock and added accent apples to give it some color.
The cover and sketch from Card Ideas for Paper Crafters that I ran across at http://www.moxiefabworld.com/ inspired me to create my "pencil" card.
