When Kid Goes to College or Uni

It's first of September and of course we all know how wonderful month this is! Kids go back to school, some leave for college and some for uni. My card is about it.

Let me first introduce you our wonderful sponsor we have at Crafts Galore Encore for September Challenge #9 Make a Card:

prize is 3 digi stamps or 1 set of your own choice. 
What the artist herself says: I love spending time in my craft room designing and creating with paper, fabric, flowers, ribbons, paint... anything I can get my hands on really. I have tried many different arts and crafts and have a particular passion for papercrafts, decorative painting and ribbon embroidery. I love to share ideas and "how to's" with other keen crafters, which is the purpose of this blog. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what I have to offer.

For September Challenge I used digi stamp called "Raspberry House".

Empty nest when child leaves home to follow the dreams what he wants to study.

He is homesick (as if!) and folds the card to think about home. How sun was shining and love in the middle of it all was so warm and made him feel good.

Raspberries and sunshine with love. Raspeberries got a fab 3D effect when adding Glossy Accent them each one by one. Sun is made of different flowers and of course shiny heart in the middle :)

Card falls flat and oops, there is a pocket and there is something in the pocket!

This is just to show embossed part of the card and pearls.

Little book attached the tag and there is a message from home. (Not done it yet because need to blog this first.)

Big tag is actually another pocket and there is some money.

That's it. Hope you like this one.
