Teacher Appreciation Card

First grade is behind us! Summer is here!
At the last minute, last day of school, I finally put together a card for a great teacher.
Mr. Estrada worked hard for these kiddos.
It was a great experience for first year in school.
We hope to see him next year again :)

The best part was to use some of the new goodies I purchased recently:
Memento inks
Spellbinders dies
Recollection Wood stamp
Inspired By Stamps - Stamps

IBSC #13
Mojo Monday #246

Hailey - Wall De'cor

We had a great time meeting old friends today.
Luna's friend, Hailey turned 7 and we all gathered at the mini golf course to celebrate with her.
She loves animals so this horse was perfect for her gift. I hope she will enjoy her birthday gift.
I used IBSC #12 sketch for the composition and inspiration.

You Go Girl

I just realised that I'm actually creating memories through my cards.
This month two years ago I became an American citizen.
I was not excited about it and it took me few good years to start the process.
But right there, at the naturalization ceremony, surrounded by all these people that finally fulfilled their dream, I realised that WOW, so many people willing to do so much, pay so much and go through so much in order to become an American citizen. I didn't plan, and it was not even on my wish list. I was naturally lucky to get married and have kids to American. I didn't have to do much for it. And yes, I did find myself crying there.
This card is a little reminder of this milestone, and that nothing is for granted!
I do appreciate this country, and I do love my life here, although I'm far away from my family and friends. I got a great new family and friends here, that I could not find elsewhere.

I combined 3 different challenges in these card:
