wow....it's been awhile....
...since I have had the opportunity to craft. I have missed the "me time" that crafting gives me. You know, that little slice of time that allows me to disappear from all the demands of life, of family, simply all the demands of the day and instead retreat into my own little world for a few minutes, for a few hours. Last night we had our very last graduation party to attend....for a wonderful daughter of a friend of mine who graduated from college a year early and will be going to spend a year studying in Argentina. I wanted to make a grad card as special as this girl. Something beautiful, rare, and dazzling in personality. I had this wonderful stamp set from Hero Arts that I have never had the opportunity to ink up yet and never actually thought of it as a "grad" image before but when I sat down to make this card this image immeadiately popped into my head....and, I love the end result. And the really funny thing is, when we went to her party she had on a adorable sun dress in the colors of peacock blue, turquoise, shades of green, purple, shots of silver and a huge flower in her hair. Seriously...how perfect right? Anyways, here is my card....and I will definetely be using this stamp again. So fun!
I am also entering this card into the Hero Arts Challenge for Creatures for the first half of the month of August.
Take care and thank you so much for stopping by....I really appreciate your comments.
