Congratulations Graduates!

Graduation time is just around the corner. In fact, in just 3 weeks, I'll be traveling to my niece's graduation from college. I am so proud of her! She has been working on her degree off and on for several years and she's about finished. On May 11th, I'll be celebrating her accomplishment with her.

She is a single mom and works full-time, yet she's made the time to study and reach her goal.

Congratulations, Kristi!

Sooooooooooo when I joined Barb's Congratulations swap - which is due just days before Kristi's graduation - I decided to make a graduation card. And in keeping with one of my goals this year (to CASE a project from Pinterest every month), I went to Pinterest in search of some inspiration. I found a link to the SCS gallery while perusing Pinterest and my idea began to take form. You can find the card for my inspiration by clicking here. I want to thank Ellen for the inspiration she provided for me!

Now, here's my card:

I decided to make it an easel card. It had been a while since I'd made one of them and thought it was about time to do so.

I hope Barb will like the card I made. I'm so excited! I'm going to hand-deliver them to her next week. YAY!!! I get to see Barb again!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
