Freshly Made Sketches: The World is Waiting

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by our guest designer Cécile Ribon.


Today is a big day in my house - bigger than that it's Wednesday and time for a new sketch!!  My oldest son leaves for college today.  I'm feeling a little guilty because I'm not sad.  I've been asked about 1000 times if I'm OK and I'm totally OK.  I think it might be because my son took a year off so I am extra tired of having him underfoot!!  I also know that it's time for his sake.  I will be at work before he leaves and I wanted to make sure he knew I was thinking of him - so I made a card!  

FMS The World

He'll like the card, but he'll love the Starbucks card on the inside.  

I hope to see you playing along!

SUPPLY LIST

It looks like my arrows are retired.  I have them listed as the Mod Arrow Border die from Simon Says Stamp but I don't find it on their website.

Hi Kim,
It really IS a special day at your house and this card is a perfect send off for your son. I love that sentiment (is it embossed?) and the pops of red. I love seeing your fabulous cards, my heart is always warmed at the ways you bless others with them!

New adventures await your son, and his 'gap year' has prepared him well. He'll be fine; he's gained some experience in learning how to face and overcome challenges. When he needs support, he knows he'll find it in you. Your card: a perfect send off. The world is waiting to embrace him...Starbucks card? NICE!!
