Well, we’ve got all three kids off to school now. Our youngest started Junior High, and as I imagined because of his personality, it’s been a great start, which is really fun. Our middle son is in High School and our daughter is in second year University.
I actually made this card for our daughter, and I hope you don’t mind my proud mama moment. A few weeks ago she received notice that she was awarded a scholarship for second year, she found out she’s in the top 2% of her degree program. With at least 4000 students in her degree at the University she’s at, it’s a huge accomplishment and she worked very hard last year for it. She studies hard and also holds down a part-time job at the same time. I just wanted to let her know again, as she’s finishing out week two of year two, that we’re really proud of her, not just for earning the scholarship, but also to see her pursue her calling. She’s going to be a great teacher. I’ll pop it in her backpack to surprise her.
This great set from Power Poppy is called Well Played, Marcy designed it with her daughter in mind, and it’s a perfect set with lots of fun images and love and encouragement in the sentiments. Inside the card reads “You totally rock!"
I gave it some fun colouring to match the paper by Carta Bella (Hello Again), and mimicked the heart and star on the backpack in the sentiment/embellishments.
To make the wood veneer heart match the card, I gave it a little touch of R21.
