Inspirational Card Sketches #30

The days seem to be flying by lately. It is Tuesday again and you know what that means. Another beautiful sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches. Our very own Olena made this one. Isn't it great?

This week we got to play with some of the super cute digi images from Paper Popsicles. I love little Elisabeth. I colored her twice and popped one up then used blue chalk around the image. She looks like she is deep in thought about something or maybe just hoping for rain...lol. Guess what else this is one of the images that will be given to one lucky participant.
supplies: Sassafrass pp, Making Memories cs and hybrid ink (blueberry), Paper Popsicles digi image, Studio G alph stamps, Peebles Inc chalk, stazon ink, ribbon, sharpie, markers

I hope you will join us and be sure to head over to ICS and see what the rest of the amazing DT did.

On a more personal note. This morning I dropped Patrick off at the door to school (with lots of protests from him). As I watched him walk up that walk I had this sudden urge to cry. I didn't think it would lead to such emotions. I mean its not like he just started school. He went to k4 last year(all day) but we had to go to his class to pick him up and drop him off. Then last week I walked him to class as well. Yesterday I walked him inside but let him go to class by himself. So it really threw me for a loop getting all emotional about dropping him off outside. Who would think that those 50 yards or what ever would make such a difference. I wanted to just run up, grab hold and not let go. It feels like a whole new era is beginning and I will not be a part of it. But I guess that is true isn't it? It seems my baby boy is growing up so fast. Sometimes I just want to scream STOP!

Patrick is not one that likes to be away. He would rather stay right here with me. This morning he says to me that he wishes they had a tv in his classroom. I tell him they are there to learn not watch tv. He tells me he knows but if he learns he has to go to college. My answer is you need to go to college..blah blah blah (we all know the drill). He starts to get upset about this thought. Then I remember his k4 teachers son just went off to college and she was always talking about it. So I tell him he doesn't have to go away that he can go close to home. Then it was all good. I proceeded to tell him that he might want to go away when the time comes because it is fun. He got mad at me and told me that it isn't nice to want to leave home that you have to stay at home. How sweet is that. I will just have to remember to remind him of that one when the time comes...lol

Thanks for listening to me blubber on and on if you are still here. Now off you go to check the ICS blog!!
