They Grow Too Fast!

I must have been living under a rock!  There are a couple of graduations I needed to honor this year and I totally forgot!  Never fear, I am only 2 days late with both, so I won't look so late!  I have not needed Grad cards in a couple years.

I created this card with a combo of stamps.  The framed owl image is from Mark's Finest Papers set called "Owl Be There" from 2010.  It is colored with Copics and sponged with Memento.  The sentiment, diploma, and cap are from Studio G.  My card base is Chocolate Kiss from Gina K. Designs, and my designer paper is DCWV from their Nana's Kitchen collection.  I added pearls, Stickles, and dimensionals to make it happen.

It was another hectic weekend here, with kids home, a memorial service, wedding stuff, time with friends, and dodging storms.  I picked my first zucchini and banana pepper from the garden.  The zucchini leaves are so big, they look like elephant ears!  Thanks for taking a peak!  Hugs!

Love hearing about your veggies, I have 3 tomato plants in pots and they are growing and I have blooms on two. Can't wait.

Mary Anne,
Hi there! Late with cards seems to be going around. I just realized I should have sent Adrieene's birthday card out with the other stuff I sent last week. Now it will have to wait until payday. Love how you combine these sets.

Great Graduation card! Hoping my parents soon have some zucchini in their garden, they had so much rain this year that their stuff is going to me late this year.
