I Love You {and Marcel's Up Stander Award}



I hope if you had a long weekend that you're easing back into the work week.  Popping in to share a card for the The Cutting Edge challenge.  Loved the color combo on Amy's inspiration card.  I played along with some Verve die cut hearts and a Lil Inker cover die template.  This card is for my hubby since I left home on Sunday and won't see him until Friday afternoon.

Before I go I wanted to share a few pictures of Marcel. A couple of weeks ago he was recognized at halftime of the varsity football game for being recognized as an "Up Stander".  A friend at school that stands up for friends that need a little help. So proud of this little guy for being recognized as being a great friend along with about 10 other kids from the school across all grades.  His smile says it all and it was extra special that Nana and PopPop came along too to see him get his award.

  9. Such a darling card. A HUGE congrats to Marcel!! Such a wonderful award and oh how we need more people like that! My son actually punched an older kid in the stomach once as he knew if he didn't his buddy was going to get punched. Thankfully the teacher recognized his desire to defend his friend and keep him from getting hurt.

  13. Long weekend? (Just kidding, I just have to take my weekends when I get them, not when everyone else gets them). I have a version for this challenge and decided I didn't like it, maybe I should revisit the card. Love how non-literal you went.
