Sprinkle each day with kindness

Tomorrow is my daughter's 24th birthday, and I am driving 120 miles in the EARLY am so I can spend the whole day with her in her 4th grade classroom.  I have not spent the whole day with 9 and 10 year olds since I volunteered once in her classroom so this should be interesting.  She enjoys working with children whereas I work with the elderly so we are different spectrums.  I have a bunch of party stuff to take to the classroom for my princess since she has ALWAYS been one.  The poor boys of this classroom will have to bear with me, but I did get some black horns and blowers so it isn't all pink.  I was going to drive tonight, but it is raining and I don't want to drive in that so I will just get up early then I won't have to pack so much.

For my card, I used the newest Verve stamp set and made a shaker card out of the flower.  I gold embossed the sentiment.  I dry embossed a brick looking background.  I also used the paper and sequins pack that came with the stamp set.
