Love You Hannah



My dear daughter (my baby), Hannah, is graduating from preschool next week, so I made her a special card to celebrate this milestone. As I write this, I feel the tears coming, so I know I won't be able to keep it together at the graduation ceremony. With it being Mother's Day and all...wow...I wasn't this emotional when the boys finished preschool, what's wrong with me?



Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #68 was just the right one to get my card started. WIth the addition of the little scalloped envelope, my card works for the Just Us Girls Technique Challenge #32: Pocket Card and the Everything But the Kitchen Sink #14: Envelope.



The sweet little Build-a-bear image from Beary Good Friends is too stinkin' cute, don't you think? By using this cuddly image, I will also submit my card for the Pile It On Challenge #10: Cute & Cuddly. The sentiment is from the Short & Sweet stamp set and works perfect stamped on the side of this little notey note:) The color inspiration came from Rachel's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #58...love the pink, orange & green:)



Whether you have a kiddo who is, who has already, or who has yet to graduate preschool...join me today, Mother's Day, and celebrate the moments we have with our precious ones. Happy Mother's Day!



Happy Mother's Day!

Wow, what a fabulous combination of all those challenges! This card is adorable! My daughter is graduating preschool in a few weeks, and with all-day kindergarten I know it will be a huge adjustment for me! What a great reminder to enjoy these special days with our little ones.

I know exactly how you feel about your litle girl, my six year old is in kindergarten this year and has grown up so much since starting school. I love your card, she will enjoy it.
