Three of my kids left for college this week.   My house is so quiet,  I'm so proud of them yet I miss them already!

Each year I make them a card wishing them well in school and letting them know how proud we are of them.

This is going to my son at Western University in Illinois, he is studying Law enforcement

Needed a CAS card for a cousin who does not like anything too frilly or overboard.  I thought the card was too plain untilI added a doily,  Wow that made the card pop, plus I love the vintage look.  Ok honestly, I love anything with doilies!  Stamp set "You are Loved from Stampin-UP"
