Today, I am off to schools this morning. Both kids are getting an award. Their school gives monthly awards based on character, and the teacher tells the class what the character trait for the month is and the children vote for someone in the class and the person with the most votes wins the monthly award. Then, they have an assembly and give the awards out. The children do not know who has won, but the teacher notifies the parents so they can come to the assembly if they want to. Well, Megan has won every year since Kindergarten at least one month and in several years more than once. Michael, on the other hand, has never won. Well, low and behold, the teacher notified Heidi that Michael was getting an award! The day that the award was to be given out, they had a snow tomorrow is the big reveal! He's going to be so excited. Hard to have a perfect older sister, but to his credit, he has ALWAYS been happy for her and her biggest supporter!
Today's card is a new Magnolia stamp. I think this is my favorite one of all the Magnolia stamps I have of Tilda. I have used a lot of glitter on her. I made the easel card from metallic blue cardstock. The background on the inside is a paper doily.
Hope you have a great Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Until later..................

oh what a great day for Michael.. that´s fine for his self-confidence!
I think he has no problem to have a star as big sister... a star like this wonderful Magnolia on your fantastic sparkling card ! A glittering (big sister) star
shines with lots of light,so that even unlit (little brother)stars shine bright !
