WMSC #83 - Black Leopard Heart

 
I hope everyone is having a great day!!  Me??  Sort of so/so.
I stayed home all day waiting for a special truck delivery of - and you'll never believe this..... CHOCOLATE!  I'm in charge of the Fannie May chocolate sale for our Boy Scout troop and all the goods are being delivered HERE!  I can't believe they trust me with that much temptation!!!  I've been waiting all day - looking out the window every time I hear a car door slam - and still no chocolate.  They tell me that for some reason the delivery was delayed and I can expect to receive it tomorrow!!!   How horrible!  Another day of waiting and worse than that, a day without chocolate!   Oh well - it gave me time to surf the web and work on a few things.  Gotta look at the up side right???

WMS Sketches_MS font_separateToday I'm playing along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  I did a lot of peeking this week - normally I don't look at any other designs until I'm done with mine.  I almost didn't do an entry because I saw so many excellent ones that I wasn't sure if I would stand a chance at Top Mouse.  I knew to stand out that I would have to do something ... you guessed it.... completely different.  I decided to go for it and make a tag for a gift for my daughter.   I am so proud of her!!!  She just completed her first semester at University and made the Dean's List!!  I am so glad she's off to a good start.  I've done all my motherly lecturing and was hopeful that some of it sunk in!  I'm so thankful!!!  Now I just keep asking her who this Dean guy is and if he's good looking!!  Her response????  "OH MOM!!!" of course!
I made this tag with lots and lots of layers - take a look at that close up!! I hand stamped the background with  an accent piece from Oval Classic Frames.  For the lace strip I used a border stamp from Pic Nic Patterns and embossed it black.  I added glittery leopard paper, metallic textured paper, and that big fat bow!   I know my daughter will love this and will be able to see all the love that I put into it.  Just my little way of letting her know that to me... she is sooooo worth it!!

You and I have talked about this before, but the best cards we make are ones that have special meaning. This one obviously has special meaning to you because it is gorgeous. Those layers, the lepard paper, all that stamping...that beautiful bow. I love this and I know that your daughter will too. I see a winner, my prediction!
