My daughter only has one more semester of nursing school and she wanted me to make a card to give her instructor. She will take her last class this fall, wished they offered it in the summer so she could get finished, so does she.I found this cute image at http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/.I have been looking for something and just happened upon this one. Blue is the color of her college uniform so I tried to match it as close as possible.I added a few flowers from the flower shoppe cartridge and a sentiment from TBBM2.I used a spellbinder to cut out the digi print.I like the way it turned out and I hope my daughter does also.

Sorry I don't have more time for a post today, Mark is off and we are going to work on the shower.  I had a chance to make a card for my daughter in law, her birthday is next month. I really like these images from the forever young cartridge and I gave them lost of bling. The sentiment was printed off the computer in the minya nouvelle font. Thanks for stopping by, have a great Thursday.

My mom finally felt better today so we went out to eat and to WM.We didn’t stay long but at least she got out for a while.I made a cute card today for several challenges.This is a digi design that I got through free digital designs blog.This is an awesome site, you can get lots of great designs (see side board for link).Black is the main pattern for this card with the pins and ribbon, but I used white pearls. I was a little worried about the pins sticking the person I will send it to Putting hot glue on the ends worked out well, I could not stick my finger after putting it on there.

The mat was made using elegant edges card and the bird is from give a hoot. The flowers are from K&Company.I think it turned out very nice and I will be giving it a place in my current scrapbook.
