Congrats Grad!


Stopping by very quickly today!  I'm typing this post Wednesday night when my house is completely quiet!  Pat has the boys out at the pool.  I feel like I've been sitting for three days straight at work (tons of meetings), but I needed to come home quickly and make a card for a business friend who just got her master's.  I'll see her early today...so I needed a card.  Thank goodness for awesome stamps from The Craft's Meow, a sketch from The Craft's Meow and yet again another gorgeous color combo from Colour Q. I'm ready to roll!  And now...I'm off for a run ...way too much sitting this week!  Hope you have a fabulous Thursday!
