Graduation Day!

This is a card I want to share with you as I made it for my youngest granddaughter for her graduation from high school.   She was a tennis star all through high school and it’s hard to believe we won’t be going to anymore tennis matches.  To top off her senior year she and her doubles partner went undefeated to the state tournament and remained undefeated taking the state championship.  Needless to say we were so proud of them both.


I’m sure you can’t tell it but the paper is a glittery paisley print done in blues which were her school’s colors.   This little Tilda cutie has helped me with a lot of cards, now she will have to wait till they start graduating from college.  Which the way times goes by won’t be long at all.

I love arranging flowers on my cards a long with bows, making girls cards is so much easier than making boys cards.
Here’s a look at the inside and this says it all.   Now I’m making a card for her sister who will be getting married in just eleven days.   My they grow up way too fast.
Thanks for stopping by and may you have a blessed week!
hugs, Ruth Ann
