Today was a bittersweet day. Phoenix had his Celebration of Growth (ie: Graduation) in preschool today. I cannot believe that my boy is 5 and moving on to kindergarten in a few short months. It’s too much for me to handle! Why is there no way for us to slow down the hands of time??? But before I start to sob all over my keyboard, I wanted to share a card with you that I made for him.
Phoenix loves all things red, white, and blue. He gets so excited when he sees the American Flag. He actually shouts out, “Look! American!” It’s really funny. If it’s got those 3 colors, he wants it. So I decided to make him a card featuring those 3 colors.
I had gotten the idea for this card from Pinterest. I had seen a card that totally inspired me. Want to see the original? Click HERE. I used my Slice machine to make all of the stars. I just varied the sizes and colors, so this was really simple. And fast!
My paper is from DCWV. And those two patterns? They are actually from the same sheet of paper! I love double sided paper! The ribbon I had just lying around, and my sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. Want to see how excited he was to get his card?
Have you ever seen a kid so happy to get a card??? I sure haven’t! Guess I did a good job! 😉 I had tears in my eyes when he gave that reaction. I’m so glad I got a photo of it! Thank you very much for visiting me today. Have an inspiring day!
