Miss you lots

Here is a card that I made to send to my daughter at college.  I went to spend the day after her 21st birthday with her since I thought she would like to spend her 21st with her friends. She told me that she cried because she didn't spend the day with me, and she doesn't remember a day where I didn't spend time with her on her actual birthday.  Her boyfriend agreed that she did cry so then I felt bad.  She is my baby.

Wow, Lisa, love that pop of black and the green background for it, the embossing is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your card with us at the colourQ.

Such a sweet card Lisa. I love the embossed background.

My daughter just left for college and I am missing her so much! I have made a handful of cards just for her. It's sure hard to send them off into the world, even though we know it's best for them.
