SU Be the Star for my Boy!

April 23, 2015

Let’s go ‘Canes!

You could say my husband’s alma mater, the University of Miami, holds a dear spot in his heart (and our driveway sometimes)…

Raisin' Cane

and now…

my oldest son (27) is graduating in May with his Legal Master Degree in Real Property (Real Estate)  from the University of Miami Law School after obtaining his law degree two years ago. Little did I know when I started homeschooling the little lad more than two decades ago that he would end up in school FOREVER!

I used the SU Be the Star stamp set, star framelits, and Lucky Stars embossing folder to make this simple little card to attach to his UM gift in two weeks.

Of course, I only have this done early  because of the

SU Only Challenges # 120 – Team Colors!


I also used the Pals Paper Arts # 249  sketch challenge this round that shows a square card- mine is 4 1/4″ so it will fit in a clear envelope that attaches to the gift.
