Hi all! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far! I have TONS of anniversary invitations to get done today (70) BUT I did take some time to play and make a card using Beate's sketch for the week! I will admit to having some difficulties with this one, I don't know why but I did! I finally was happy with it but it took me waaaayyyy longer than it should have - LOL! I did change the sketch slightly: instead of horizontal dp pieces, I did mine diagonal, but everything else is the same! I also stamped the G from the sentiment twice, cut one out, popped it up on dimensionals to give it some depth. I made this card for my son Tyler who will graduate from the eighth grade on the 4th of June - they have a ceremony and everything! I have mixed feelings about this - I am so proud of him, but I also want him to stay my little boy (although at 68", he is 6 inches taller than me already!) So, it is with a smile on my face, but tears in my eyes that I will watch him receive his grad diploma from middle school and join the ranks of the high school. Time is going by too fast for me! So, I will leave you with the recipe and then, back to stampin on my invites! I need to get them finished so that I can move on to my class projects - it will be all stampin' for the weekend, but none just for "fun" (although to me, it's ALL fun!) Enjoy your weekend!
