Happy Graduation!

Good Monday morning everyone! I can't believe that it has been so long since I last posted. I never meant for that to happen. But it has been c-r-a-z-y around here! Between baseball, soccer (games and practices) and then school getting out (remember that I quit my job so ALL my stuff had to be packed out). But wait! That wasn't enough! No!! I had to get sick on top of all that!! UGH! I think a lot of it has to do with allergies but I can't seem to get rid of this annoying cough. And then I get a headache from coughing. And it just goes on. So for the last three days it has been so windy around here. And then we had three soccer games and a baseball game. So sitting out in all this dust (and there is a fire south of us to blow in smoke from that as well) is not helping anything. We got home from an end of the year soccer party and I could smell nothing but dust all night long. O.k. Enough of me whining. But can anyone else feel my misery? And I have been going to bed quite early, too! Hopefully I will start to feel better this week...
Since I haven't been stamping for quite a while, it has been hard for me to get back into it. I am hoping that I can take some time today to just sit with some sketches and start creating. This card was made from the fall-to layout from Clean & Simple. I needed a quick and easy card to mail to my niece for graduation. I was excited about finding this sketch. I even have some other ideas to do with it. Thanks for hanging in there with me! Now that school's out, I plan on posting more regularly. Have a super day!
Card Recipe: Stamps- Starring You; Paper- Whisper White, Real Red, Crushed Curry; Ink- Basic Black; Accessories- large star punch, small star punch, scallop border punch, perfect polka dots impressions folder, Big Shot, black brad, dimensionals
