A happy happy surprise


Happy Wednesday everyone!
I had the nicest long weekend organizing my craft room (not quite done - but are we ever?!?) and playing with some new stamps that I got in the mail. A few weeks back I won the Little Dreamer set from TGF and finally inked it up. Truth is, I finally found it so I could ink it up. lol! I told you I'm never quite done organizing...
I saw the current sketch over at Club Anya and wanted to play along:

{Jennifer makes the cutest sketches!}

Imagine my surprise when I saw my card on TGF's blog yesterday for Top Crop Tuesday! Eeek! (Thanks Tanya for making my week!)
I made this card for Lily, my 4 year old who is just sooooo anxious to start Kindergarten next year. There are mornings when she gets dressed when her older sisters are getting ready, then puts on her backpack 'pretending' she's getting on the bus with them. Little does she know that I dread that day! After she's in school, it will just be Iz and I, until the rest of the kiddos are done with their day. :(
I made this card with DCWV Grade School designer papers (appropriately chosen for this little dreamer) and added some girly embellishments.

Other fun challenges:
Stamps R Us: For the girls
Pile It On: Childhood Dreams
Stamptacular Sunday: Someone Special
Simply Create: Bold and bright

Thank you so much for coming by today and letting me share my story, have a beautiful Wednesday everyone!

♥ & Aloha,
