Hang In There!

Here is a simple card to let someone know that you are thinking about them. I wanted the words to pop out (there's a lot of white space in the center) and I goofed the first time when I tried stamping them out just in green. I think my "mistake" turned out to be a good thing!



Card Materials:
Stamps: Monkey Business, Pick of the Patch
Papers: DCWV Bright Stack


I feel like I could use this card myself right about now! Anyone else with a 13 year old daughter? I love her dearly but am trying to figure her out - she's so different from me when I was growing up. But I guess times are different now too. Here she is helping watch my nephew during a recent get together with my sister's family - Stephanie is always a big help and getting good grades so all is not lost!



Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mom's out there!

I love, love, love the card you made! Awesome!! My daughter is 7 going on 16 and sometimes I say I am running away from home when she turns 13! LOL Your daughter is so beautiful and I would have guessed her to be much older than 13! Your nephew is adorable! What a fun photo!
