Amazing....

....but I am now the mother of a college graduate!  My lovely daughter, Bessie, graduated this past week from the Univ of Minn and did it in only 3 1/2 years!  We are so proud of her.  We traveled to Minn to see her graduate, celebrate with an amazing meal afterwards and then, meet up with lots of her friends at their favorite college "club".  Fun time! Here is a picture of our beautiful graduate....




And here is a pic of the graduation card I made for her.  First of all, Bess loves the pairing of pink and orange together.  She also loves silvery sparkle and bling.  And she loves black....loves to wear it and loves to accent with it.  Her favorite flowers as a child were sunflowers, hence the colored Impression Obsession sunflower stamp in the background.  And she loves polka dots therefore the card needed lots of dots.   Her name means The Rose and so when I saw this Penny Black stamp I knew it would be perfect for Bess. Also, this particular stamp reminded me of Bess as she loves dressing up and loves to wear high heels.....




It has been a whirlwind the last few days but a good whirlwind!  Thank you for stopping by ;-D

Be well,
Sheila
