Keeping It Green With 365





Good morning everyone I hope you are having a great day. I am busy getting ready for my daughter Chloie's 18th birthday....WHAT!!!! I am not kidding I do not know where the time has gone. She will be starting college in the fall and moving on to the next stage of her life. Chloie is our only child/young adult and we could not have asked for a better one. She and I are kindred spirits but she always remembers that I am the Mom and she is my Daughter which has always worked out quite well....lol. She also knows that her Dad and I will always be her soft place to fall no matter how old she is. Chloie wants to be a teacher and we all believe it is her calling. We have found in our school experience that the great teachers are the those who are called to it and follow their heart. I am sure no matter what grade she choses to teach she will be awesome. Now that said I am pulling for an elementry school teaching job because I want to volunteer in her class. I so miss the days of carnivals, cupcakes and & field trips. To all the Moms out there who still have little ones treasure every moment no matter how exhausting
they may be. I promise you that some day you will be looking back and missing all the wonderful times you had. Ok I have rambled enough and I am getting a little teary eyed.



My card today is for yesterday's 365 Cards challenge #19 Keeping It Green. I love the bright greens so that is what I went with ( even though I am not sure if the green looks green in the picture). I am having so much fun with these challenges and this is the most stamping I have done in a very long time. I am getting to the point where I must pack them up and send them to Pat (Rubbermaid ). Pat was the wonderful woman who asked us to send her Valentine cards to give the Children's Hospital in Michigan. She also needs cards year round some for the kids and some for them to send out to their family members for birthdays and such. What a great gal and a wonderful cause.



Well that is all for today I hope to be back tomorrow with challenge #20 from 365 Cards. Once again I would urge you to stop by their blog and check out their daily challenges. You do not have to do them all but I think you may want to. Have a great day and I hope you find a little time to stamp.



Peace Out

Debbie

Great card today! I love how the colors pop. Its very dynamic. I would also love to send some cards Pats way, if you could get me an address that would be great! And I will try to remember what you said about treasuring every moment.... usually it starts to fade around tantrum #3 or 4 (especially when they are all packed in before noon!) OY!! happy birthday and good luck to your daughter!!
