Achievement

My Niece has just finished college, she has 3 boys, teenager, two younger and a very supportive husband,  she decided to go college and she did very well too.  She took on a lot so I wanted to make sure she knows how wonderful I think she is!


I thought this definition worked perfectly for a graduation card. I layered the felt flower diecuts and then stitched french knots to keep the layers together.

Hot off the press -- Cardmaker's card quotes definitions
Chalking and inking on the definition tag
Colorbok -- Homespun paper
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A&B and Labels 25 dies
Stamps of life -- Standup4sentiments stamp set
Cuttlebug flower dies from felt

Well I tried getting the picture of that bunny off my phone the way I use to send pictures to myself on my old phone and it isn't working. I don't want to put email on my phone so I don't know if I will be able to share that with you or not, I am sure if I ask my hubby to figure it out but that isn't high on his to do list, LOL!

Hope all you Mother's out there have a wonderful day tomorrow and those of you that are blessed to still have your Mother enjoy that time together!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate hearing from you,

Connie

What an amazing accomplishment! Kudos to your niece. It sounds exhausting 'cause all I want to do is retire! She'll appreciate your fabulous card, Connie, and you're very thoughtful to have made it to acknowledge her achievement.
