Pursuit of Paper....

Well, not "OUR" kind of paper, more along the lines of sheepskin, but this weekend we're heading to see my husband's baby brother graduate from college with a doctorate's degree! My goodness is that dedication to a dream or what?! I find it simply amazing in the sense that I've known this brother since he was 8 years old and hardly taller then my shoulders! Now, here he is 6'7" (yes really!)and now a "doctor"! WOW! So, this accomplishment means his favorite crafting sister-in-law has to make him a "WOW" card right?! Well, here's what I chose to make;



I think it packs a little "wow" factor! LOL! I simply used the "Spring Card" technique from Splitcoast Stampers, altered it to fit my needs and VOILA! CARD! Yeah!! I made the tassel using simple embroider floss that I had laying around - easy peasy! The "Celebrate" stamp is from Queen Kat Designs and is one of her "Congratulations" stamp set! What I like about this particular one is the font! It's very readable and "fun" too!
Well I hear alarms going off in the house so that means the family is waking up and we're getting on the road here soon! See you on Sunday!

Until next time....
