We all know that our kids grow up far too fast. Brooklyn is 17 and I am always telling her to get her nose out of her iPhone, that she is missing life. Well she sent this to me yesterday from her Field Hockey Tournament to remind me that she is out being healthy and active and that she misses being a kid too...oh, and look Mom my iPhone can take video im slo-mo!  Love that kid!

What a perfect die to use in an inlaid manner! All the texture on the different pieces really make it stand out from the card base (along with the color, of course). Gorgeous! And thanks for sharing that cute video your daughter took : )

That video is priceless! "Aunty C"has been know to go down slides with Ms. T and Mr. C...and I look just plain ridiculous! Still, how fun to 'be a kid' again! Your card: exponentially stunning! The inlaying technique is spot-on perfection!
