Well, I think I survived the first day of school but with much anxiety this year. I have never been so nervous about a new school year before, and that is saying something, since I have been a Mom for over 21 years now! This is my daughter's first year of high school. My middle son is doing cyber school this year. I am very nervous about this to say the least, but pray for the best...and my little guy is finishing out his last year of elementary school this year. The years are just slipping by. I wish we could slow the clock a little bit and have more time!
So, I have to share with you today a card that I made for my daughter's 15th birthday. She is a tough one to make cards for. She loves them all, but they are not always her style. She is not a "girly" girl by the term, but she does love the things that girls love....lots and lots of clothes, shoes, perfumes...etc. However, don't mess with this girl. She is the sister to THREE brothers.... tough as nails, and she does not take a single thing that they have to dish out. They fear going near her room and always ask me to ask her something if they want to talk to her. LOL. Now, I love that this child of mine is so confident and independent....BUT, she needs to take it down a few notches and not always start out on the defensive, right?
So, having said all that.....this card was made with a bit of some of the things that she loves. She loves animals and her two birds. She loves butterflies and the color teal. She also LOVES books and reads ALOT....so what is going in the inside pocket of this card is a gift card to a book store in our mall here. If nothing else, I know that part will be a hit :)
This image is from Cornish Heritage Farms and works really well with the Mariposa papers.
Thanks for visiting me today and sharing a glimpse at what my daughter's special day will hold for her. Hope you enjoyed your time here and hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderful day!
