Candy, Malinda, Johnna, John

Good morning!  I can't believe it's Wednesday again.  Time sure flies when you are having fun.  I had a great weekend traveling to Indianapolis to watch my daughters Malinda and Johnna march with their high school band at the Indiana State Marching Band Finals at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The view from my hotel window

The Fairfield Marching Pride gave one of their best performances and received 7th Place in Class C.  It was the last time my girls will march together since Malinda is a senior this year.  I am so proud of my girls, the Fairfield Marching Pride and the band staff for a wonderful season!

Now for my Heartfelt Creations project this week I made a sympathy card.  You always hope you don't need a sympathy card, but it is good to have some on hand when the time comes.  I really like the brown and pink combo on this card.

Make sure and check out the Heartfelt Creations Blog and all the great projects the other Design Team members created this week.  I will be back next week with more projects created with Heartfelt Creations products.  Have a good week!
