At Home Manicure!

Today was one of the best days ever!  I don't know if you guys know about the Limeades for Learning campaign going on with Sonic.  During this time of the year Sonic has a portion of their sales go to funding classroom grants on this website called Donors Choose.  A few of us were shocked today when Sonic dropped by our school and presented us with some huge honorary checks and we were told that our grants were being funded by this campaign!!  If you have never heard of Donors Choose, I recommend you visit.  It's a place where you can help teachers across the country by giving a donation to their classroom.  You can even see classroom pictures of how your donation impacted children.

So as you can imagine, I got home in a super happy mood and had to make a card!

Here is my card:

This is suppose to be me, except I can't do my nails. I tried... and I failed. I was at a hair salon last Friday waiting for a couple hours for my hair lady, and I was sitting by the manicurist.  Getting your nails done looks so relaxing!

Can you see her nails? My husband is super good with details and he said she should have her nails already done! I added glossy accents to the nail polish and her nails.

This turned out to be a fun card! Finished it up with stitching, twine bows, and embossing. 
The sentiment that inspired the whole card is from My Creative Time's set called Gift Card Sentiments.  It's an awesome set!! 

Recess: Girl at desk
Slumber Party: Nail polish
Twinkle Toes: Card base
My Creative Time: Sentiment
