You're Amazing

I'm trying to get back into the swing of things after CHA!  Whew, that heat (115 degrees with the humidity) really wore me out!  I'm so glad to be back with my family.  Yesterday we sent off our daughter for her first solo flight to visit her cousins.  She was both nervous and excited...so I slipped a little card to her before she left, based on this weeks TSG Challenge Sketch.


I am very proud of her, it's a big accomplishment to go on your own on a plane.  Thankfully we could pay for a guardian to take her from gate to gate and plane to plane.  But, I know she will experience a new sense of independence because of doing this.  But as every mom knows, she needed a little extra reassurance that everything would be well and that God would take care of her at every step on the journey.  


I pulled out the gorgeous new set Hibiscus illustrated by Torico...ooo is it pretty. And for a change, I used the solid images rather than coloring them in.  I layered the different shades of Memento ink over top of each other to make a pretty little arrangement.   And then I added the very pretty Sentimental set from Julie Lacey...it was the perfect addition.  


I added some pretty layers of Spellbinders borders (Fair Isle Borderabilities) and a pretty half bow in satin as accent.
