I didnt steal it honest...

Good morning everyone, whats going on with the weather, freezing cold and wet then last night warm and humid, I give in trying to figure out what to wear for bed...you know the weather is weird when you need to keep a change of nightwear on the end of your bed don't you lol...but at least the warmer night kept the creepy crawlies outside where they belong, btw thanks for all your tips yesterday for keeping them at bay Im working on using them all just in case...my card for today is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge...this week its our lovely Michelle's choice and she chose either Fall or Back to School, I chose Back to School as I wanted to use this cutie smart little hAnglar boy, I coloured him with distress inks and used this lush My Minds Eye paper, would you believe this is a Christmas paper from the Holly Jolly Collection called Reindeer Fly, the reverse makes more sense though lol...I added a Thickers sentiment...ok now I admit it the pencil is an Ikea pencil but I just put it in my pocket by accident the last time I was there honestly...mind it works perfectly for this doesn't it...I finished with some fab Natural Button Twine from the Pretty Little Ribbon shop and a few buttons...I'm entering this for the Craft us Crazy school theme challenge, Stamptacular Sunday Just Saying challenge and the Totally Gorjuss Nothing Square about me challenge too...my Dad is back from my Sisters today so I'm going to the supermarket with him and for put the world right coffee too, whatever your up to today have a fab one
