Today’s steal, the My Mind’s Eye 6×6 Collection Vol. 2 are the perfect collections for this time of year. With the kiddos back in school and teacher’s gifts for the holidays creeping up before we know it, the variety of paper collections available today can offer all sorts of crafty ideas for any teacher gift need.

During the retreat I decided to ask some of the creative crafters sitting at my table if they would like to create some cards for this week’s Monday Card Madness. I love the different twists they put on the School Daze collection.

Jen McDermott whipped up this darling card and I just about un-invited her from sitting by me because her stamping abilities are so incredible. ;)

Cristine Redmond made this darling teacher thank you card — and again, stamping. I’m a wee bit envious I have to admit! I love how it looks!

And lastly Kelly Marks made this incredibly fun card with a great mix of the patterns in this collection.

Thank you for sharing your cuteness with us, ladies!

Now some of you may be wondering what the “sketch” is for this week and you are lucky enough to get to use any or all three of the cards as inspiration. :)

Believe it or not, we are nearing the end of another month.

If you’d like to enter to win our October Monday Card Madness swag package:

  • Create any or all of the weekly Monday Card Madness sketches.
  • Post the card to our Facebook fan page, or any other online location.
  • Leave a comment on one of the Monday Card Madness blog posts with a link to your card no later than 11:59 pm, MT on Thursday, November 1st.

Have fun creating cards this week!
