Graduation Boy's true what my sister, Angie posted.  And it's here for anyone to see.  No posts since November.  I'm a miserable failure at this blogging thing.  But hopefully the two of us will do better moving forward.  Angie makes beautiful, beautiful cards, and I look forward to seeing her creations here.

As for now, I just finished a graduation card for a special and dear friend of my daughter.  She loves him very much.  Their school colors are orange and black.  WOW - how do you make a card for a BOY that doesn't look too frilly and girly...AND use orange and black that doesn't look like Halloween.  That was my challenge.  While my daughter, Katelyn, and I don't think Lance will truly appreciate the time spent on this card, we do figure his mother and sister will enjoy it.  Ha!  I also have ulterior motives to post this to a challenge on Krista Smith's blog.  She is the amazing artist who created the Graduation Boy image.  LOVE HER work.  You can get Graduation Boy at

In the meantime, enjoy!

Followup to this card...apparently I shouldn't assemble late at night or in this case, early in the morning (around 2 am).  Neither my sister, daughter or I caught that I reversed the numbers in the year.  My dyslexia kicked in for me to honor this card.  Oh well, it's the thought that counts.
