Believe In You

Today the girls and I are going to be staying after school for a bit to stamp with a few of the teachers. This will be a first for a couple of them and I think I'm prepared to bring 'em on over to the dark side ;) It's only fitting that the first stamp set that they will use will be the Believe In You.
Here is a card that I made last night using this set. I love all of the different images and sentiments that are included and they are all the perfect size to create quick thank you notes to or from a teacher! One special thing about this card is that beautiful crochet flower that I used on this card. This flower was hand made by Danielle Lounds and given to me (along with some in other colors as well!!) for my birthday back in May. I have been hoarding them this entire time not wanting to part with them and use them on a card but she assured me awhile ago that it was indeed ok (and encouraged) to do so lol!
