Prize: $30 gift certificate to Verve

And since it's a new month, that means we've got a new Stamp of the Month to reveal!

In May we're featuring the sentiment set, Dare to Be. With 5 uplifting and encouraging sentiments, this set is perfect for graduation, congratulations or just a little pick me up. Or pair it with the To the Moon, Chicks Rule or Lucky Ducky sets for perfect little love notes to tuck into a lunchbox.
And at 40% off during the month of May, Dare to Be is a pretty big deal!

For my card today, I paired the Dare to Be set with Lucky Ducky!  I also used the Elegant Leaves die and coordinating stamp from Bloom & Grow to create the branches that the ducky's hiding behind.  I thought this would make a great card for my daughter, Arwen, as she is a little shy.  She is really funny, but when anyone laughs at the funny things she does and says, she gets upset because she thinks people are laughing "at her".  I've tried to explain that the things she does and says are FUNNY and that's why people laugh, but I don't think she understands the difference!  LOL 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy today's hop!
