Wishing you....

Well, this is going to be a long weekend. Yeah! I have my hubby home for three days. We don't get to spend much time together during the week so weekends I really look forward to and especially the long ones. Anyone have special plans for this holiday weekend? We are going to spend tomorrow with my daughter's family and then we will see what happens after that.

Our neighbor's daughter graduated from High School this week. We have know her through her high school years and I wanted to do a little something for her.


Since the school colors are black and gold I started out with my base card of True Black. I used Summer Sunrise for one of my layers. The white is Stamper's Select and I embossed it with the new linen Impression Plate. I stamped the sentiment from For the Graduated. I used Labels 4, and stamped it with the image also from For the Graduate. I used Summer Sunrise ink but it looks more like a light yellow. I was able to use the cap and stamp over the hat image in black. I ran a Quickie Glue pen over the stars and then used some yellow glitter from Sugar Coated. I also ran the pen over the line in the sentiment and used some black glitter. I then used some True Black buttons with white embroidery floss. I also stamped the hat image on the front of the envelope and stamp 2010 in Summer Sunrise. For the inside of my envelope I stamped the hat image and the year on some Stamper's Select White and used the new envie die to cut it out. I don't have any of PTI's white envelopes yet so I had to cut the edges for my envelope.



I think that is about it for me today.

Have a wonder Memorial Day Weekend!!!
