So Proud of my Niece

My youngest niece, Samantha is off to the USA next week to start a 4 year college course in Soccer. She is 18 and football mad just like my sister. She plays football for York Ladies and decided a couple of years ago that she would like to go and study in the States. She applied for a scholarship and passed the exams.

She is really looking forward to it but obviously nervous. She is quite close to my sister as she is the only daughter with 2 older brothers. My sister is very proud of her as we all are but she is going to miss her.

My sister and brother in law are going over with her next week for a fortnights holiday and then coming home, leaving Sam there as the academic year starts in August. She will be home for Christmas.

Here is the card that I have made her. The image was a sticker which was matted onto a nestie. The papers, ribbon and gems are all from my stash. The greeting is from craftwork cards.

Thanks for reading
