The honor is all mine

Frequently I hear compliments on what a great job I’m doing with my kids and mostly I just feel lucky to have the kids I do.  I know you know about A Sweetheart…I’ve made cards for her before and blogged about her before too.  Recently I got a letter in the mail from this child’s principal.  She was really worried.  I played on that worry and asking her what she did.  “Why am I getting a letter from your principal?  Do you have something you need to tell me?”  Ha ha ha…finally having let her hang for a few minutes I explained what the letter said.

The principal was congratulating me on my daughter’s academics for the 2nd trimester telling me she made honor roll (again…she does this a lot) and were cordially invited to a special shin dig this morning.  Now my kid makes honor roll a lot…they all do.  That’s not the impressive part.  The impressive part is that she has missed a ton of school with being sick, moving, and a myriad of other things.  Something like 60% attendance or whatever.  So…even though she’s missed all that school she is still so diligent and studios she made the honor roll.  YAY!

A Sweetheart likes horses and pink and lime green.  I came up with this for her using two of the freebie cuts from SVG Cuts!  I ♥ SVG files and SVG Cuts are some of the best!  I have had a bunch of their freebies saved for later use for sometime now.  Be sure to come back and visit later today when I show you another SVG Cuts project!

The card base is 5.5 square and just some random pink paper from my stash.  The square mat is Core’dinations and the shadow on the horse is something in my stash.  This is also my first project with twine.  Bling in the corners of the mat, a nice love note inside and voilà!

  1. You are wonderful to appreciate your daughter for her scholastic success and recognize her (and with a favorite animal of hers). Faith, you are saying a great deal to her as her mother. That is a nice card–like the coordinated blue hooves!!
