Boy, these last couple of months have just been a whirlwind! We have been so busy with my daughter's last year of high school and just seemed liked there has not been enough time for anything. Yesterday my baby girl graduated, (with honors!) I keep saying, "I need to make her card, I need to make her card..." . Finally Wednesday night, the night before graduation, I sat down and made it. I used Iwona's sketch from this week's Sketchbook Saturday. I totally love her sketches and finally used one. I used my daughter's school colors and my stamp is from JustRite Stampers, I think this set may be retired.
I am entering this in There She Goes milestones challenge this week.
We are taking our daughter out tonight for a nice dinner and then we are going to see Super 8, looks like a good one. Thanks so much for popping by, have a great day. :)

Yesterday was happy Verve mail day! I received my newest set American Hero, on sale this month for a whopping 40% off! So of course I had to ink it up! I used the first sketch for this month's Viva la Verve.
There is also a fun challenge at Flourishes, Star Spangled Banner, use the colors red, white, and blue. Check out the blog post to play along and try to win the newest release! Their stamps are always gorgeous!!
For the blue panel, I pulled out my Stampin Up canvas background stamp. I thought it kinda looked like denim so I gave it a little faux stitiching with my white gel pen. The red panels are stamped and embossed with one of the stars from the American Hero set. My mini stars are colored with a glitter pen, but it's not showing up in the photo. Some sponging and that's it. Thanks so much for stopping in for a little peek, have a great weekend. :)

Recently I was asked if I would be the guest designer at Pals Paper Arts this week, and of course I said yes! Thank you Ann and Mary, I am so very honored! This week's challenge is a color challenge:
These colors actually had me stumped for awhile. I finally decided to go with something a little CAS, a little embossing on the Night of Navy Panel, some quick stamping, and this card came together pretty quickly once I got into the flow and figured out was I was going to do. :) That's it for me today, check out the challenge and the DT's awesome creations at Pals Paper Arts. Thanks so much for popping by! :)
