Just Us Girls & Stamp with Fun

I'm back with Mimosa. You'll be seeing her more than once this week! I have to share the story for this card before the details. A few weeks ago my friend Kathryn posted something on Facebook that just melted my heart. Those of us with more than one child know that there is often one child who struggles more than the others with the rules. You know the one. He or she is the child that caused you to read "The Strong-willed Child" book only to say, "Great, he just described my child. Now what?" Kathryn's middle child is her button pusher. Yet, she comes up with some priceless moments that just surprise her mommy. This is what Kathryn said on FB (name omitted to protect the innocent):

"My child was looking at me weird and I said, "What?" She answered, "I just want to look at your beautiful heart. What a kid!"

Isn't that sweet? And Kathryn does have a beautiful heart.

Now the details. This is for the Just Us Girls Challenge 19 (my first time for this one) HERE. Here is the sketch:

This also is for the Stamp with Fun challenge number 45 found here. The theme is hearts. I've been having fun seeing how much Deutsch I remember from college!

Stamp: Mimosa from Bunny Zoe Crafts
Ink: Memento black
Paper: red, pink, white, DP is K & Co. from my sweet friend Kathy (Katbirdmom)
extras: copics, sharpies, CM cutting system, punches, raindrop hearts from Gina K., ribbon from Michael's

Absolutely love Mimosa and your story. Yes we ALL have one (or more!) of those children if we have more than one child. Great job with the coloring, your color palette and the great heart accents. Thanks so much for supporting Just Us Girls and for playing along with our challenge. Hope to see you again next week.
