a simple thanks

Today is a huge day... I get to register my oldest for kindergarten! It's crazy to think she is already 5 and ready for school. After debating over and over about 1/2-day mornings, afternoons or all day kindergarten, I've opted for mornings. I guess with 2 younger siblings that still nap in the afternoon, it's a good choice. We are getting a brand new school in our neighborhood that will open this fall and Avery's class will be the first to enter kindergarten there. What a blessing it will be to have a school so close - I just hope it's a good year for the school and there aren't many hiccups with staffing.
Today's card is inspired by Kristina Werner - I love her simple style and her cards and projects are amazing, especially her scrapbook pages. Love them! I got a Cuttlebug for Christmas this year and I've been wanting to use this 'thanks' sentiment die cut forever (ok, since I got it...). Well, here is the perfect little place to put it. The only stamping on this card is the little dots from sweet shapes. I used my 1/8" circle punch on the bottom and place a strip of Soft Sky underneath to pop out the circles a little more. The base is Kraft cardstock and then I used textured Blue Bayou and Groovy Guava. The Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky cardstock is smooth, but I really like the textured! I wish we could buy it in color packs instead of assorted packs from Stampin' Up! OH and hey! I finally figured out how to make a watermark! I'll be playing with that for a while and see what style I like best for my photos. Looks so professional - so not me! ha!
