Celebrate Today

Friday, September 12, 2014

Today's card is one that I gave to my daughter on the day of our reunion last month. I wasn't sure exactly what sentiment I wanted and nothing quite seemed right.  But really, are there the right words for meeting the child you placed for adoption 20 years ago?  In the end, I decided that the day was a day to be celebrated, hence the sentiment.  

I've popped the main panel up with foam tape and matted the white panel with just a touch of black card stock. I've used my Rosie Posie set before but I don't think I've ever used the large images in it that I used today. I can't wait to make some more cards with these stamps.

As always, thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by and see what I'm up to.
