Challenge cards! and a serious conversation.

Hello my friends and happy Saturday! Today it was a busy day, but great at the same time. My daughter had a soccer game this afternoon and she and her team had a great game (even though her team didn't win). The funny thing is I was sitting on the ground cheering up the team and a little boy was talking to me. He told me he liked his team and his school teacher
So, our conversation went like this:

Me: So, what's your teacher name?
Dylan: Teacher.
Me: Ok,... she must have a name, right?
Dylan: Shis name is teacher of the kids! (He said Shis, :)
Me: Great! You must love her a lot.
Dylan: My teacher is good :)

I smiled, looked at him and said, you are funny. He saw me taking pictures, so he wanted a picture too and I did. Then, he told he wanted to go into the field and play because Rebecca was there, PLOP! I think he didn't know Becca's is my daughter. He whispered to me and said, She is nice!! After the game, we had a potluck and he just wanted to be with Becca, he sat next to her and played to her in the playground, even when he left, he told Becca, "I am leaving, Bye Becca" I was surprised!! Aren't kids sweet, well, it's sweet now they are little, LOL.

Anyway, I have 2 cards for you today.
My first card is for 2Sketches 4 You Sketch Challenge. I made this card for my good friend from church whose birthday was last Wednesday. She loves handmade things and I hope she likes my card.
I included a lot of stitching in this card; straight stitches fort he borders and zig zag for the ribbon area.
