SU Blue Ribbon

SU Blue Ribbon

It’s a Graduation Celebration at The Friday MashUp #108 this week, and it was at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa, last Saturday for my son, Aaron. He finished his undergraduate degree with Honors and is headed off to law school in the fall. Here’s a photo of the very proud parents with him. As you can see, I could not resist color coordinating Jim and I since he had that Primrose-y Petal/Melon Mambo shirt from a wedding last summer….

I am planning some fun GRADUATION cards/projects for Stamp Night next month so I played around with the SU Blue Ribbon stamp set. I have seen this design on numerous sites and just went with my own version with SU Parker’s Patterns DSP- about to retire!

Stampin’ Up Blue Ribbon Winner…

My daughter who is home for college break woke up this morning and gave me the stamp of approval for this card! She loves blue probably because she has her dad’s beautiful blue eyes;) She asked me to keep this card to give to her boyfriend for his college graduation. It always makes me happy when she gets excited over one of my cards! Does it make you happy when you have worked on something and someone oohs and aahs over it? I used Freshly Made Sketch #68 and The Paper Players #128 that challenges us to make a card with Blue, Gray, and Yellow.

Here it is….
