Happy Birthday/ Timeless Tuesday

Wow, time seems to be flying by the last couple months.  My son's last day of school will be next Friday.  I can't believe he will be going into 7th grade.  They have a clap out for the 6th graders on the last day of school.  All the kids and teachers come stand outside the classrooms and clap while the 6th graders parade down the halls.  Today the senior class who went to this school 6 years ago came back for a visit.  He thought that was pretty neat.  The funny thing is...on his first day of kindergarten, I did not cry.  He had 3 school years of preschool before kindergarten, so it was just another day at school.  Next Friday, I know I will be a mess!  This is HUGE for me and him.  He will be in Jr. High next year.  My baby is growing up so fast.

If you are still with me, I am back to share with you a card I made for the new Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes.  This week Beate is the hostess and she is asking that we use a floral image.


I just love this Set called Seasonal Wreaths, you have 4 seasonal wreaths to choose from.  I used the one withe the pretty roses.  Can you tell I like that tag and sentiment?   I have several birthdays coming up in the next couple months, so I am planning ahead.  Ha!



Supplies:
Stamps: Flourishes/ Seasonal Wreaths, Mix-n-Mugs
Cardstock: Flourishes/ Classic White
Dies: Flourishes/ Tailor Made ClassicTags
Copic Collections: Sunflower, Green Grass, Flesh Tones 2, Dogwood

Here are the links to the rest of the design team for additional inspiration.

I was there last year with our middle son Heather. Now I have a HSer and JHer and one in elementary. :) I have to say, that as tender as I get about the different passages, I'm really enjoying the stages my kids are at too. JH is not all bad, promise :)

Gorgeous card. I love this wreath. And the feminine touches are so pretty!

Maria said...

Hello Heather...happy to hear we are not the only once that are on summer break :) !!! Time did fly by super fast and I'm glad life hopefully will slow down a little bit now:) !!! Your flower card is beautiful...love the coloring! Enjoy summer...hugs ~S~

Shelley Germann said...

Yeah! School is out. Hope you have a great summer. Middle school is very exciting for the kids, they really start to seem grown up. Mine little one will be a freshman and my oldest a senior. Next year will be special, with them in the same building.

Your card is lovely and that's not a surprise! The color combo is one I don't think I've ever used, so you're expanding my horizons!
