Smile...just be you

Hello there crafters!

Hope you are enjoying some fine weather!

I created a card today for my daughter. She has been a bit sad from being left out of some friendly gatherings with some other girls. :(
I hope this clicky-phase among girls goes by fast.

I created my own plaid paper with some inks and a stencil. The inks are Hero Arts just rust, soft cantaloupe, WPlus9 lake house and Heidi Swapp teal. I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamp. White and black cardstock are from Recollections.
I used a Spellbinders square die to cut the window. The sentiment die and seentiment stamps are from Lil'Inker Designs, Fancy Feathers. The clear rainstones are from Papertrey Ink. Black ink is Memento.

I am playing along with 

and Simon Says Stamp...anything goes

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Michelle, this is such a sweet card, I do hope your daughter loved it and embraced the message (a very important one). Girls can be tough 13-year-old has had similar occasions and it is tough. Tough to watch as a mom, too. I love the plaid background you created, and the sweet die cut is perfect. A great card! Thanks for joining us at CASology!

Such a precious card for such a sad occasion. Love that plaid window, and the big, bold, beautiful "smile". Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Colour Me...! Big hugs for your daughter, too. Girls can be so mean. Unfortunately, it doesn't stop with childhood. Hang in there, Mom!
