Big Day!

Hey all! I am so happy to announce that my daughter finally got to take her driving test and she is now on the roads! She was over the moon excited to get her license on Friday! I, on the other hand, was so super nervous. That is a whole new stress level added, not to mention EXPENSIVE! Holy cow, insurance for a teen is outrageous. lol

Today is a bittersweet day here for my family for a few reasons. One, my girls no longer have to ride the school bus now that the oldest is driving. That means that my babies are no longer babies (with the exception of my little guy), which is scary and exciting at the same time. Also, my farmer guy has started a new adventure today. After 14 years working for the same company as a concrete foreman, he has decided to start a new career path. We are hoping that this gives his body some needed healing and allows him to focus on his first love (farming/agriculture). His new job is buying tractor parts for re-manufacturing. This is a huge leap for us, but I have faith that this is the best move for us as a family.

So, all that being said, here is a card I have to share with you today.


I just LOVE how this card turned out. The paper is from my stash. The horse stamp is one that I had bought from Michaels (probably a Recollection brand, but can't swear to it), the letter stamps are from My Craft Spot, and banner dies are from Verve. I used Tim Holtz walnut distress ink for all my edges.

Here is a look at the inside. I think the boot stamp is just too cute!  Not sure if you can see in the picture, but the paper has spurs on it.

I hope you like it! Be back soon. Love, Hugs & Blessings!

  1. Love this card Amy! Love the papers you used and I love that horse stamp. Your banner on the side is awesome and I love the boots on the inside! Yes, I can see the spurs on the paper too. Congrats to your daughter and yes, car insurance is very expensive on teens! I have went through this with 6 boys and I can tell you when the youngest got his license 2 years ago, my nerves was just as bad as with the first one. lol I still worry and pray over him each time he leaves for school. Not sure what I will do when he is off to college this fall. lol Congrats to your hubby too. I hope this new job is just what your family is needing. My husband has worked for a brick and block plant for 35 years because it is very close to home so he can come home to farm if the weather is looking bad and he comes home for lunch every day. My hubby's first love is farming too. I guess we are just farm wives. lol Love it though and loved raising my boys on the farm! Hugs!
