Hi there! Since it's Wednesday, that means it's time for an all new My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge! Many thanks to all who joined along ~ so many wonderful samples! For additional inspiration from participating DT members, please be sure to visit the MFT Blog.
Here's this week's sketch:
For my sample, I made a card for my dear son Jerry who relocated to San Francisco in January to start a new chapter in his life :) I'm so proud of him! After graduating from the University, he immediately accepted a job and moved. I think he is so brave and I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of him! I put together a care package and shipped it off including this card :)
I love the cute birdhouse that was made using Die-namics Homespun Birdhouse Die. I have so many uses for it and never tire of it! To create the sentiment tag, I first die cut the tag using the die from MFT Notched Tag Sentiments, then using MFT Sno Cone ink, I stamped the tag image followed with the congrats sentiment, both from MFT Notched Tag Sentiments. I finished the card with a MFT Natural button and Hemp bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)

Perfect card for your son Mona... love the pale blue with the kraft.. it looks so elegant.

Although we're very proud of our children going off to start lives of their own... we can't help but miss them I think... my daughter (she's 27) lives in Bermuda (has done for the past two and a half years and is there for another one and a half...) and I DO miss her living a half hour away!

Hugs

Beautiful Mona - I have a daughter who will be turning 26 next month and is getting married in June. She just finished graduate school two years ago and her fiance will be graduating Medical school this Spring. In fact, next month is "match day" where they will find out where they will be moving to for his residency. I am so proud of the two of them, but I have already started crying!
The little birdhouse is so appropriate - our "little birds" are leaving the nest! :(
