Bus Stop

If you are here for the hop and you came from Sew Many Challenges blog, then you are at the first stop on the PJ Pals fall release. If you happen chanced to come here, then please go to Sew Many Challenges blog and start there.

Bus Stop - Here is a sight that is common around the country this time of year; as children head back to school. I keep my grandson, Tyler, and he has just started 1st grade. I am happy and sad at the same time to lose his company during the day.

For my card I used All Seasons paper pack by The Paper Studio ans some buttons.
My image is Back to School Stryder, one of Sew Many Cards PJ Pals. PJ Pals are modeled after children with disabilities, hence the name PJ Pals. Stryder is the son of Sew Many Cards owner, Angela. Stryder has an amazing story that Angela has posted before, but I was unable to find it to put in a link.
My second card uses Ghost. Ghost is the Freebie that you can get for a limited time here. I love this image. I colored him with Copic's.
I colored him yellow-green to match the paper and Glow-in-the-dark MS glitter that I used on the MS punched fence. The bottom photo was taken at night without a light or flash.
Leave me a comment and one lucky person will win the Stryder back to school image that I used. Now head over to Audrey's blog for the next stop on the hop.
