Use It Tuesday #14 - Back To School!

Hi, everyone!

It's time for another Use It Tuesday Challenge!

Just out of curiosity, who has children already back in school?
My boys do not go back until next Monday.
It feels like we are later than usual in starting up!

Well, the theme for this week's challenge is

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday, September 2nd.
No blog? No problem!
Just use keyword USE014 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. 
For more info, just hop on over to Use It Tuesday!

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

My card this week is super simple but really neat because my oldest son helped me with it! He stamped and I cut/punched the images out. He helped put the images on using pop-up dots. We had a lot of fun working on this together. 

Ken picked out this oldie but goodie stamp set from Stampin' Up called "Crayon Kids." He remembered that I had used it for his thank you cards for his 5th birthday... he had helped me stamp those too! This stamp set has not seen the light of day since! He's 8 years old now. LOL! 
The "Back to School" with the apple image is from Michael's. It's a dollar stamp set from Studio G. I had bought it a couple of years ago on a whim... never opened! 
The hoarded item is my satin ribbon. Ken insisted it was "the perfect" ribbon for this card. I love my satin ribbons... this one is almost gone. I think it's the Bashful Blue satin ribbon from SU. 
Oh! I almost forgot to mention that I had hoarded the designer paper that you see... not for the stripes but for the airplanes that are on the other side. Ken wanted to used the striped side for this card. :)

Hop on over to the Use It Tuesday Blog and see what we came up with!

I can not wait to see what you put together!
