The Days Ahead

I know a couple of ladies that started college and I made them each this card.

(stamp: Verve Forever in Our Hearts  dies: My Favorite Things Stitched Square/Wonky Stitched Circle/Tree-mendous,Avery Elle Double Stitched Rectangles)

Cacti are special to these young women
(long story but I'm glad succulents are IN right makes creating for them easier).

 The sentiment, taken from a Verve sympathy set,
 isn't your typical send-off-to-college greeting.

However, the last time I spoke with them, they were pretty freaked out about this milestone.

 I hope this brings comfort and reminds them:
one. day. at. a. time.

No matter what, they are loved and we're still here for them!!!

 My colors were taken from the following photo...

 I love summer themes...esp flamingos, pineapples and ALOHAAAA.

However, I couldn't get a gold tree trunk out of my head
 (plus I was trying to work in the cacti pp)...

so this happened. 

That should be my bumper sticker...

so this happened


Thanks for stopping by, friends~
