Baby Girl Is Graduatin'

My youngest graduates from high school in a about 10 days.  She's been done since March and looking for a full time job so she can move out and live the dream.

This is the card I made her to celebrate this milestone

I used Grad Girl 2012 from Saturated Canary and colored using reds and yellows.  The side chevron border is Oh Hello [SU!] and the class of and year stamps are from PTI.

Colors are Real Red and Delightful Daffodil.

Not a lot of blogging time right now because I need to get the house ready for the grad party which is tomorrow.

Happy stampin!

Yes, I still remember how to stamp

Wow!  A lot has changed since the last time I blogged - mostly the reason for why I haven't blogged since early November.  There has been no small amount of drama and a lot of changes... a lot of personal changes ... a lot of happy personal changes (I did go back and check the date ... my last post was about a week before the happy personal changes began.)

Anyway, the reason for the happy personal changes is out of town visiting his family this weekend.  Because of other commitments I wasn't able to go with.  So I used the time productively to see if I still remember how to stamp.  It appears that I do :)

Back in December I did make wedding invitations for a friend of my daughter (her older brother is getting married on Saturday).  I was quite thrilled when T asked if I would consider it.  Why of course I would.  The couple's catch phrase for the wedding is essentially "come share our perfect day".  I mirrored that in the sentiment of the card.  I printed the sentiment using the same font I used on the invites (dontcha just love when it all works out like that !)

I decided to use bright spring colors (Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, and Delightful Daffodil)  even though winter still has its grip here in the Midwest.  I also used the new Watercolor Wonder set from PTI.  Well it was new in February even though today was the first time I opened it ....I know I know, but I did say happy personal reasons at the start ....

Since its been a while I did keep it pretty simple, but I love how it turned out.  This card has actually been in my head for a while (probably since I purchased the Watercolor Wonder set) and I'm so very happy that it came out pretty much like I envisioned.

Have a great weekend!
