Happy Bday Kendall!

So today my baby girl turned 12 years old. I really can't believe that twelve years have gone by this fast.
You know the album I have been working on for her, well this is the card that is going to be inside the album. In the card I am telling her to always follow her dreams, reach for the stars & your bound to land close.
Just a little background info...when my husband and I were 22 years old, he joined the US Navy, he went in as a e3 and within 2 1/2 years he was an e6 {not heard of, very hard to do}. When my husband joined he told everyone that he wanted to be a pilot, and no-one believed in his dream except me, not even his parents. Long story short, he got picked up for an officer package, he went to the Citadel & got a degree in Civil Engineering & now flies helicopters in the Navy.
So whatever anybody puts their mind to achieve, it will happen. Nothing is impossible and that is what I am telling my daughter is to DREAM BIG.
On to the card {isn't it yummy}, the base cardstock is kraft & the dp is from Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl line {love love love this line}. The dream sentiment {stamped in basic black} and the little flowers {stamped in real red} are from the Floral Fantasy Garden stamp set from Flourishes, www.flourishes.org they now have free shipping over $45, even for people who live internationally! The wide ribbon is just delicious, its from May Arts.
Now if my Papertreyink order would ever get here {ordered it 10 days ago} I can start on her party favors.
Today is beautiful, but its freezing, well freezing for Florida its in the high 40's. Have a great day!
