Back to School!!!!!

Hello everyone: Well, this card is the first card I make for my grandchildren who are soon going back to school, I still have to make the rest and I will be posting them later. This one is for my almost 12 year old granddaughter Anastasia, who is going into the 6th. grade this year but will be taking advance 7th. grade Math and English.  This year she will also join the Cross Country team, this little girl loves to run. Last February she was on her school's Timothy Ball Math team and the competition was at this school so we were able to go see her, we were amazed at the math skills of this kids, we were trying to solve the problems, with NO luck what so ever, LOL!!  so I made this card for her to wish her good luck this school year.

Oh yes, here I go again with my little mice, LOL!! forgive me but I love them. Besides, little Monica has the perfect expression to convey the message as she stares at the board filled with this Mathematical equations, sheeesh!!
This image is, of course, from House Mouse, I stamped it first onto some copy paper to be able to more or less create the brick wall, after I drew the bricks and colored them, I took the mask off and I stamped the little mouse right on it's place, colored it with SU markers. Then I made the "board" and, after looking for some equations on Google, I wrote them down with white gel pen.  I also drew the question marks and exclamation point with a micro black pen.
The books are from a retired Flourishes set called "From the Desk Off.....", I just masked the flower vase and stamped it onto a piece of Canson water color paper and colored it also with SU markers.
I wrote the titles of the books myself, then I fussy cut them and placed them on the panel with dimensionals. The sentiment is from another Flourishes set called Botanical Bookplates Volume 2.
I stamped the letters and numbers with an Avery Alle set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


This is to let my little granddaughter know that, with hard work, she can accomplish anything, she'll be jumping for joy like this little mousy.
Now, this is the program from that Math Bowl competition, thought you might like to see it.


And this is the list of kids from Anastasia's team.


Thank you for stopping by and for letting me brag a little, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
