You are totally awesome!

Hello! I count my lucky stars every single day for all of the wonderful that I have in my life.  In fact, I often feel like the world's luckiest person!  My wonderful hubby and I have 4 amazing kiddos.  My sun literally rises and sets around them.  I became a mom young and decided that my career would be raising those kids.  (Rotten hours, minimal vacation time, no sick days, raises are not a thing, but oh soooo many benefits!)   It has always amazed me the amount of love that you can feel for your children.  When they are happy, it makes you sincerely happy!  When they get excited about something you feel that excitement too!  When they struggle though, it hurts you just as much as if it were your very own struggle.  One of my kiddo's is facing a bit of a challenge right now and it's very difficult to watch it happening.  Although there is no doubt in my mind that this kid will show the situation who is boss, it still stinks having to get through it!  My card today is inspired by the strength of my children and the incredible love I feel for them all! Corny...yep!  Mushy....definitely!  Life is so short though, so I believe it's worth mentioning to them every chance I get just how much better they make the world. :)

I used the new Hexagon Dynamic Impressions Embossing folder for the background.  It is so pretty!!  It leaves such a deep image in the paper and it just pops out at you!  

Lots of fun layers on this card!  I used the Layering Squares framelits for the sentiment collage and added flowers from the Grateful Bunch stamp set.  I added some stamped splatters and polka dots to add some visual texture to the flat pieces. I wanted to try to pull the whole look of the card together without going overboard!

Up close view of all of those layers.  I am just so impressed (pun intended! *giggles!*) with that embossing folder!  

Here are the things I used to create this card.  Cllicking on any of the pictures will take you to my online store where you can purchase all of these goodies! :)

Ok, I am off to tackle more sheet rock today!  It's not going to finish itself (much as I wish it would!)  Have a good day!  I'll see you soon!
