Well my son made it safely to Germany,  and yes I cried at the airport.  I cried because I will miss him dearly but also because I know this is another phase of life when my children are no longer mine.  ( I also cried because I had to go back to work tomorrow)  Vacation over!!!!

Anyway,  Love how this card turned out.  I'm really in love with Vintage anything.  On Pinterest I spend hours searching for Vintage anything.  i'm also an avid reader, nothing beats my Nook!

Freebie image from Elizabeth Dulemba at Coloring Page Tuesday. I love getting her emails every Tuesday.  Tons of "always freebies" in many themes.  I colored this with Prisma pencils and Gamasol for shading.  I then used Tim Holtz distress markers on the grass and flower.  Sky was created with Sky Blue paint and a dabber.
DP is Basic Grey,  die cut is from Memory Makers.  My daughter and I both share the love of reading.  She will get this card eventually.
