another year wiser --TSG207 -- FMS86

Happy Sunday to YOU!!
My happy healthy mojo is back, which is much appreciated!
 I finally feel like myself again!!  Woo hoo!!!  
Two cards finished today which means I get to start something NEW!

Here's the first one for the There She Goes "Moving On" challenge and I used a 
sketch by Amy from Freshly Made Sketches.   It's for challenge #86.

This card is for my daughter who is "moving on" in school.  She will be leaving kindergarten and going into the "big" grades like her sister!  She is so excited to have SPELLING next year!  Her FAVE subject!  (It was mine, too!!)  On this card she is depicted at recess in the Carolina red clay which she brought home from school for the first week or so until she learned that I do NOT LIKE red clay in my car or house!  She now plays on the blacktop!  ;) ;) ;)  

Here's the sketch

Hope you like my little smarty pants!
