My sister Mary is having a college graduation party for her son (my nephew Tyler) tomorrow.... lots of good food & relaxed atmosphere. Hopefully the weather will be nice because her & her husband just built a new house and there's lots of dust & dirt & construction surrounding them. They were looking around for a nice ranch style to buy (eventually retire in) but weren't having any luck, so they ended up finding a nice place close by to build their own. Anyway...Tyler has done quite nice for himself & has already settled into a well paying job that was waiting for him when he graduated! He went to Thomas More College here in Northern Kentucky, and there colors are royal blue, black, white & gray. I needed to make a card for him lickety-split last night, and I remembered that I had My Favorite Things Blueprint 11 die that spelled out the words "You Rock" that I had purchased earlier & never used yet. Plus I follow the MFT blog and knew they were having a "use your MFT stamps & die" challenge. I would definitely need some guidance in a hurry so I went to their website & searched their project gallery and.. BAM!! One of their designers ( Michele Boyer from http://papercuts.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/) had created a card using the same blueprint die. She used different colors, the card was for a girl not a boy, she added shiny crystals to it & die cut it a little differently than I did, but basically...I made the same card!! The stamp is Pure Innocence "Graduation Boy" and I colored him with my Promarkers! Can't thank Michele enough for the inspiration! So here is my card for Tyler...thanks for stopping by to take a look!!
