Clear it out, school's back!!

School is just around the corner! So it's time to celebrate with a School themed challenge at the Clear it Out Challenge Blog.

I had the privilege of using a digital stamp from one of our sponsors Limited Runs.

I love the array of cupcake choices Nikki has designed, but the 'Butterfly cupcake' really caught my eye. In my children's school each grade has an insect. The JK's are bumble bees, the SK's are ladybugs, and the first grade children are butterflies. As soon as I saw it I knew just what I'd do.

My son's teacher is amazing. I am so thankful my son has her again this year. She has gone way above and beyond to help him and I appreciate that. She sent home a little note this week about reminders for him about school. He has some issues and needs a lot of preparation for changes. So she shed some light on where he would be, his desk placement, classroom rules, etc.

It was lovely to know that as much as I wanted her to be his teacher again, she requested him in her class.
 I had to send along a big thank you card to her, with a gift card to her favourite coffee shop of course. I'm sure she'll need lots of coffee in the upcoming weeks-lol

The challenge also called for chipboard. I glued pick paper to the chipboard and chalked arouind the edges. The butterfly is popped up on dimensionals and of course I had to add glitter ;)

The challenge is for 2 weeks. Can't wait to see what you create!


  1. Super cute card, the teacher will love it and the coffee card. It is wonderful to have such a fabulous teacher that is so intuitive. So many just label students and push them aside for the easy teaching ones. TFS.

  2. Love this card, Laura. I hope your son has a great year at school.
