Graduation Card

Last week, I shared a picture of my lovely daughter that just graduated from High School. I finally got the card that I made for her uploaded to my computer and I am sharing it with you today. It is hard to see, but the bottom says 'Congratulations'. I got the idea for this card from this blog. I didn't have the Big Butterfly die that she used on her card, so I improvised with what I had - and ordered the big butterfly die, so now I can make this card again - which was really fun to do. I used my daughters favorite colors and then used a new DSP from Stampin' Up! that was available for a short time - and now will be available once again in the new catalog coming out July 1. I am posting this card as my sample for the design team over at Top Tip Tuesday. This week we are introducing our new Design Team members and showcasing all the awesome talent on our teams. There are some GREAT tips and our wonderful sponsors this week are Robyn's Fetish and Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. So stop on by to take a peek at what the design team has done - and enter for your chance to win one of our sponsors' prizes. It is an open challenge this week, so we are hoping to see tons of awesome entries this week.
On another most FRUSTRATING thought - Blogger is giving me complete fits! I can add new posts to my blog - as my dashboard sees me logged in, however, when I visit blogs or try to comment, I am unable to show blogger that I am truly signed in - SO, if I do not comment on your blogs - it isn't that I am ignoring you - it's the problem with blogger!!
I will have pictures of my NEW craft area up in a few days - could be a week - who knows - I work the next two days and then my sweetie and I are going to celebrate our anniversary - somehow, someway!!
Thanks for stopping by the spa - come back soon for a visit and bring a cuppa with you.

Happy Anniversary. The butterflies are lovely in this, especially layered as you have them. Try using Firefox for browsing rather than Internet Explorer. I'm using Safari & haven't really had any problems with commenting.
