Dear Sister 39

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, May 11, 2013 @ 2:07 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all having a great weekend! Things have been a little crazy busy here! We started Friday morning with April's graduation ceremony from Arizona State University 
 Jerry and April post commencement:
then we went to Connor's Track and Field State Championship event for the rest of the afternoon. He qualified for finals in two out of four events so today, Scott has to work so  Tina and I are going to be there to cheer him on :)
Here is a photo of Connor in Lane 7 taking off from the blocks:
This is a cool shot of all the boys who were getting ready to fun a particular event. Connor is #1112 :)
After all the activities, it was great to come home and create this card for my sweet sister Tina: 
I stamped the pretty cameo image from MFT DC Vintage Cameo Sentiments on the coordinating die cut frame that was made using Die-namics Vintage Cameo Frame die. I topped off the front with a few homemade flowers using Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses and Dienamics Mini Rolled Roses and Die-namics Mini Royal Roses
I completed the inside with a sentiment from MFT DC Framed Greetings that I stamped on a coordinating die cut label made using Die-namics Framed Greetings die.
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Stampin' Royalty challenge:
 and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Tuesday Morning Sketches:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all who will be celebrating!
Be Sweet :)
