Good morning! Yesterday was Lindsey’s Middle School graduation. She is now an “official” high school student! I am feeling a bit older today, now that I have TWO high school kids! This card was made for Lindsey and I am making a few more (in the appropriate school colors) for my neice and some other friends. I used some chipboard stars, colored them with White Craft Ink, and added the rhinestone brads for a feminine touch. The “congratulations” words are from the Mini Catalog. I love the look when you color the letters with markers! It just seems to add alot of character to this card! There are 4 phrases in this stamp set — Thinking of You, Congratulations, Thanks so much, Celebrate You…..great words for the cards I make! Sorry the photo of this card is not that great. I waited until late last night to photo it (after I gave it to Lindsey) and that was a mistake.
This photo is taken on our back porch right before we left for graduation. It was VERY stormy here, starting around 4 in the afternoon and the sun came out right as we were leaving to go to the school. What a blessing! It was still raining a little bit, so we stood out on the back porch for a few photos. I am a big fan of “natural light” photos. They are always so much better! If you look above our heads, you will see a rainbow!!! What a joy to see this after 3 hours of pouring rain! And if you look closely, you will see a “black spot” — yes, that is a little (maybe it is big) bug that flew into our photo. We will have to edit this one on the computer! At any rate, not the best photo of ME personally, but it was a special moment and I will treasure this memory. I would also like to point out that Lindsey is TALLER than me……….scary!!!! She did have on shoes with heels, but she is still a little taller.
Have a super day! That’s all for now……….Dawn
