Hi stamping friends, happy hump day. Oh wow, what a day. This morning I worked on graduation cards and then went to town to get a hair cut. Then came home and noticed a bunch of Gold Finches at my feeders. It is good that I filled them yesterday. I put on some work clothes and gathered all my seed packets and headed out to work in the garden. It was such a beautiful day here. I got everything I had planted and my raspberries moved and the grass seed put down in the rest of the garden that we dug up when Mike was living but I didn't want that big of a garden. I am sure sore tonight and had to give myself a pedicure from the dirty feet I had. Hey, did anyone watch The Bachorlette on Monday? Did you see that Emily is back? What do you think? I like her I guess but I think there are some strange guys on there. There are some good ones too though. I saw some previews that should make it interesting. Of course. I hope we get to see some neat places and not just her hometown.
On this card I used a couple of discontinued stamp sets from years back. I thought the 4th of July set Independence Day made such a cute Graduation card for my friend that graduated from college with a graphic arts degree. I should have her help me with some things. LOL! So any star and flourish set would work. I did use the new In Color Raspberry Ripple. Isn't it a pretty color? I love it with the black.
