Happy Graduation Day!

Hi!

I am running on fumes trying to finish up some cards that need to go out in the mail. We are running full speed with outdoor time summer activities plus the regular scheduled activities that keep this taxi driver Mom busy! Less and less crafty time...and less and less blogging time. I expect my posts will be rather short 

We received another graduation announcement, so off to the craftroom I go.  I saw the colors this week on the Colourq blog and really liked them, so I used that as my jump start source of inspiration. 
On the left portion of the card front, I stamped my own patterned paper using PTI: Rosie Posie. The right side is using some fabulous patterned paper from Cupcake Cards and Gifts called Last Summer.    The sentiment die was created using Happy Day Stamp Set. Buttons and twine are added for a finishing touch!

Here is the Colourq Colors where I found my color inspiration.
Sorry to keep this so short! I expect that's how most my post will be for awhile.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
~Tammy~

Short but sweet :) I can smile because I still have a couple of weeks before I'm in your shoes...but I'm a little bit dreading it.
I love the bright mix of blues, and the pop of yellow is perfect to liven everything up!

I hear ya on the busyness! Gosh, I cannot WAIT for school to be over. Sorry your little man doesn't let you sleep in...that'll change (hopefully) when he gets a bit older. :)
