For my card today I am using Verve's Fabulous You, and Super Dad stamp sets.  I am using Verve's Cut Above Ribbon Banner and Rounded Scallop Frame dies.   This card is for my dd who leaves for university in 8 days. Bring on the Kleenex people!  Now that it is getting closer, some of Erica's comments are implying that she is uncertain of the unknown.  This is a big step. I thought these two sentiments alone are wonderful, but combined they really say what she needs to hear.   I am using some fun Webster's Pages papers from my stash.  I distressed the edges, added some ink distressing as well, then stitched.  I layered two of the Ribbon Banner dies for the focal point.  I finished with some gems, seam binding bow, and clear stick pins.  I am using this month's SFYTT.  Verve is the sponsor this month. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the super talented Jen d.'s Blog!

My dh is 10 years older than me, His daughter is only 14 years younger than me. she has two children, I love my husband, his daughter, and her family very very much....they are like my own! So I will call them such from time to time. I could not ask for a better family, we also get along with my dh's ex wife, they had there daughter when they where teenagers. So all is good now. Have a great week sweet lady!
