The Journaling Cards Challenge

I am loving the latest challenges over Moxie Fab World. One of them is about Journaling Cards .
I am sure most of us have some journaling stamps/paper in our stash. Today I am sharing my take on journaling cards.

I stamped all the images on the journal-style paper (BoBunny, Basic Grey). 
YOU're the Best!
The background was stamped in Formula Fun. The house (from Right at Home) and sentiment were stamped in Basic Grey (Basic White). 
 
(David's goofy photos in junior high)
When I made this card, I had my son David in mind. 
 David not only excels in his studies Nanotechnology, he keeps busy in attending weekly Christian fellowship and takes part in Dragon Boat training 3 time a week!  Even though I see David every weekend (he lives in the university residence), I think it's still important to let him know how proud I am of him and his accomplishments. 
high school commencement (Nov. 2012)
 Despite the new college stress, transitions and what not, David always remains cheery and optimistic. I think his sunny smile says it all.
 
Way to go, David!

Great papers and colors - the card is perfect for a proud mom to give to a fine young man. I love the sentiment on the cloud. (I'm having trouble posting from my phone, so I hope you don't get two comments from me.)
