You're the Best!!

Hey there friends! I hope you are doing well. My days of being a momma to 4 children are getting fewer and fewer...my 5th little one will be born on May 15th... (if everything goes according to my schedule!;) and we are so excited!! I tell you what, no rest for the weary these days! We had a couple of days of the flu with my oldest daughter last week, and that threw me for a loop!! Now, last night my other daughter followed right in her sister's footsteps! We've got flu case #2 today, and although my sweet little one is doing better...I don't like the sick bugs!!
 
I'm happy to have her occupied for the moment (being sick and home from school at our house is SO BORING!!! Or so my daughter tells me)...so I thought I'd finally get a chance to post my card for the fun Pretty Pink Posh shaker blog hop! I've been looking forward to the fun, but didn't know if I'd get a few minutes to post...so I'm glad I am getting these few minutes!


I was asked to make a card for one of our FAVORITE teachers that is retiring this year. We are all so sad to see her go! I pulled out a new pad of Heidi Swapp paper--beautiful paper--I might add, that I picked up at Joann's, and my fun Heidi Swapp stamps too. I cut the frame from my PTI Fabulous Frames, and just trimmed the bottom off a little. I stamped my flowers, added my sequins, stuck them all together and then attached them to my card! The stars are beautiful Heidi Swapp too...they come all glittered and ready to be beautiful! My sentiment is from Avery Elle, the Handwritten Notes stamp set. I think she will love it...and I think the shaker with iridescent and silver sequins makes it super special! I am linking up to the Simon Says Stamp "Keep it clean and Simple" challenge too...:)
 
Glad that I got a chance to post and link up the PPP blog hop! Hope you have a wonderful sunshine day...thanks so much for stopping by!! See you tomorrow for a bit more of my sharing my "therapy"...:)
