Way To Go Grad!

Hi everyone! Thanks for the prayers for my friend's daughter's surgery yesterday. She came through it fine and amazing as it sounds, she went home about four hours after the surgery! She has about a month of recovery time.

As you know school is almost out and there will be lots of kids having their graduation - be it from pre-school, high school, or college. I do not personally know anyone graduating from school this year - so if anyone reading this blog likes this card and could use it - just send me an e mail at usyungs@gmail.com and let me know. First person who asks will get it! edited to add - the card is spoken for! Thanks!

The image I used is of course from Squigglefly and is the darling little Grad Shy Bear drawn by Lynne Stansbery. I colored it in my high school's colors - blue and gold. The Copic colors used are b-24, b-29, r-11, E-31, E-33, Y-35, Y-38, Y-13, Y-17, Y-19, N-0 and N-1.

I made a little tassel out of embroidery floss and threaded it though the card stock and then stuck the tassel part over the tassel in the image. The black card stock is embossed with the Textile embossing folder from Provo Craft. The sentiment was printed out on my computer.

I really hope someone out there can use this, because it's too cute to just sit here being unused!

Tomorrow the Squigglefly design team and I have something fun planned. We've all picked out a favorite older image from Squigglefly to showcase. We're calling it Squigglefly Rewinds so be sure to come by tomorrow and take fresh look at some of the older images!

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

Now this card is simply adorable! My grandson is graduating from pre-school and this is the kind of card he would like for me to give him...I think I'm going to have to investigate this one. Thanks for sharing Holly :)
