I Believe In You

I made this card for my gorgeous Daisy...I am holding onto it for the appropriate moment!  I am blown away every day by just how amazing she is, I couldn't be prouder.  She has really settled into high school, has thrown herself into school life with massive gusto, book club, film club, dance club, the gym, maintaining her homework, a wee part time job at the stables, pipe band and scouts.  I don't know where she gets the energy!  I am pretty much only required for taxi driving and feeding at the moment.  I guess that will get worse the older she gets!

Here she is a few weeks ago helping out on a freezing cold super windy Saturday at her first cross country event.  She had a brilliant day and worked really hard without complaint.  She walked miles around the course.  I guess it won't be too long before she is competing at events like this!

Here's her card...

The image is Simply Sassy Winking Student from the always brilliant Sugar Nellie Stamps. She looks a bit like Daisy!  Think it's the glasses and the pleat and the books that do it!  She's stamped onto Papermill Direct white linen card and coloured with Polychromo Pencils.  The patterned papers are First Edition "Desert Bloom" available from Trimcraft.  The sentiment is a Kaisercraft "proud" mini stamp.  The punches used are a Paper Shaper large flower and a Tonic Studios corner rounder.  The button in the middle of the flower is from Sonas Made

 Above are my Polychromo colours.
