Graduation Dilemma



Good Morning & Happy Hump Day Everyone!
First, I'd like to thank you all for your well wishes!  It truly made me feel much better reading your comments!!!!  You guys are great & I truly appreciate you very much!! 

Now, onto my post:  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Weekend.  Mine was actually quite nice since I'm finally out of pain even if I'm not eating *real* food yet.  My family enjoyed the meal I cooked & the kiddos LOVED the treats I made for them as well as their cards.  I'm just elated that I felt good enough to make the things that I wanted & to see how much they appreciated everything they received!!

My creation for today is just what the title of my post says.....graduation dilemma!  My oldest son will be graduating on May 20th & I need to narrow down what card I'm going to give him.  His favorite color is blue so that's the colors I went with today.  I used that supah fun Take A Spin set to make this cutie but I must realize that he's 17 1/2 years old & and a male so no bling or anything can go on his card.....I'm going to be making a few more to narrow down my choices & that means that he'll just receive several cards from me!!  I'll have to seriously put my thinking cap on to get the right idea on paper....maybe I'll go with a silhouette theme next time.  We'll see!!

I'll be back on Saturday with my Etsy post.  I've missed playing with my team & can't wait to get back in!!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
