I {heart} Hearts ...

We are in the final countdown before everyone heads off to college.  It is an exciting time around here and a sad one too.  Between Bethany telling me that this is her last time to live here since she will be at school now until she graduates and Michael heading off for his freshman year, I'm getting teary eyed already.  My cardmaking and posting are going to be taking a backseat for the next two weeks.  Right now, I'm all about my family.  First event ... hitting the fairways (hopefully) tomorrow afternoon in the 100 degree weather. 

Since the Mom strings are getting tugged at (and the umbilical cord cut completely ... hehehe), I wanted to make a card with hearts.  This card was inspired from the new catalog on page 157.  I believe this will be heading to Bethany in a couple of weeks.


Stamps:  I {heart} Hearts, Whimsical Words
Paper:  Basic Gray, Island Indigo, White
Ink:  Basic Gray Island Indigo, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  square lattice embossing folder, Cherry Cobbler seam binding, dimensionals, corner rounder, metal piece (non SU)
All products are SU! unless otherwise noted.

I'm off to meet Michael for lunch.  He is taking his history classes this summer at the community college and we have a lunch date after class today!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Oh, very pretty, Pam!!! I feel your aching. It is such a hard time on mothers when their kids leave the nest. I'm sure your daughter will love this card.

Oh, and be careful on the golf course and you may better drive the cart this time. LOL

What a lovely card Pam. I know how you feel, I was fine the first few weeks my son left home for the military, after that I cried like a baby for 6 months :)

Love the texture on the bottom of the card! Hard to see the kiddos go isn't it?

Really cute. I love how you combined all the hearts and I love how you colored the sentiment.
