Wagon Full of Love

This is a little easel card I made for my daughter.  It's the first time I've used Pure Innocence stamps.  I thought this one was so cute with her little wagon and so perfect for the occasion.  My daughter has been working so hard to participate in her school's Lego Robotics team.  They practice endlessly and she's given up lots of free time and had to give up swimming and participating in this season's tennis league.  But she loves to go to the lego practices.  She almost gave it all up because she was so afraid of public speaking.  They have to make an oral presentation to a small group of judges this Saturday.  She had quit but one of her coaches asked her to reconsider and I'm so happy that she did.  I think she is glad she stuck with it too.  She's practiced so much and in front of so many different people that it's becoming less scary to speak.  I know her team will do well this Saturday and hopefully will make it to the state finals. 

Well, back to the card.  These little animals in the wagon are so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it.

The sentiment is just so perfect.  I used PTI's mat stack die and placed little rhinestones in the corners.

Hopefully, she'll like the card.  I tried to make it as purple as possible since that is her favorite color. 

And I'm so happy there are teachers and coaches like the one who asked my daughter to reconsider.  She was so supportive and understanding of my daughter's fears.  Whether they make it to the finals or not, she and the rest of the team have already learned and accomplished so much. 

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Your easel cards are so cute! I gotta try one, one of these days. The sky looks good, great idea for covering the white background, I gotta try that someday too. I bought a whole bunch of distress inks from Michael's when I had a 20% off entire purchase coupon over the veteran's day holiday, but haven't had a chance to use them :( Nice drawing of the sidewalk and grass too! Great practicing! Good luck at the Lego competition!
