Amazing, Fantastic, Extraordinary, Wonderful
I spent this morning preparing ahead (fingers crossed, knock on wood). My 16-year old son has had a tough few years. Of course, you couldn't pay me enough to go back to my teen years so I can totally relate. Just this year, he enrolled at Lutheran High School for the significantly smaller classroom size and the Christian environment. It's been a perfect fit!! He went into mid-terms with straight A's (and a great attitude!) But one of the things that developed over the last few years is a severe test anxiety - so it's always possible that his nerves got the better of him on his mid-terms. The results come out at the end of this week and I want to have a card ready to go - so I can immediately hand it to him and he will know that I have faith!
I have had this set out on my desk for awhile because I wanted to play along with Avery Elle's AEI♥U Challenge to create a project summing up my personal style. I love clean cards - either white or I also love kraft. I love including something that is unique or different - in this case, the button, and the fun sketch from retrosketches. (I'm also a big challenge player!) I don't tend towards patterned papers and if I use it, it's usually just a dash. I love stamps that can stand alone - in this case, the variety and arrangement of fun fonts makes the sentiment interesting all by itself.
