Best Card for Little Sis! - Religious

This post is Religious - if it bothers you . . . just look at the picture. :)

I also forgot to show you this one!!!!  I've mentioned before that my little sister is serving an LDS mission in Buenos Aires.  My little ones and I were able to go visit my family before she left.  In our church the leaders usually ask the person getting ready to leave for a mission to speak in church before they go; so we were able to hear her speak!!!  My little sister was so nervous that morning (actually most of the week), but she did an AMAZING job!!!!  Her talk was very touching!  She spoke about the fire of testimony and how it starts with the little spark in your heart; she talked about how it can grow and what can help to fuel the flame.  For a 22 year old woman to give a talk like that . . . well, let's just say I was a very proud older sister!!!!  So I ended up making this card especially for her to let her know how proud I am of her!! **Did I mention my sister loves pink and brown together, and polka dots are her FAVORITE!!** :)

This was cut from the Create a Critter cartridge (yes, again) cut at 3.5 (I believe; I didn't save it, sorry).  Of course I added stickles to it :)  The purple ribbon is actually something that I got from the very talented Nicole at Primped in Paper.  She is so talented, you should go tell her I say hi (and check out her creations while you're there). :)

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
