Sweet Stop sketch Saturday

Hello my friends! It has been quite a while since I have posted in fact this is the longest stretch since I started blogging without a post. It was an especially busy couple of weeks with my daughters' activities. There were dance recitals, kindergarten graduation, and exams. I am still trying to get caught up!

Anyway, I am back and starting things out with this week's sweet stop sketch. The sketch and my sample are below:

I decided to turn the sketch horizontally and I chose the Parisian breeze dp again. I colored my adorable Olivia owl with copics and added stickles to the hat. I stamped the diploma stamp and then stamped "congrats" over it. This card is for a girl at my church who just graduated.

Here is the inside of the card

I stamped a border for the inside and for my envelope (not shown) by alternating the graduation cap and the diploma which are from the Owl Celebrations set from Sweet N Sassy stamps. On the top part I stamped the graduation cap and then stamped my verse from the Encouragement set over the top of it.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Owl Occasions, Owl Celebrations, and Encouragement scripture
CS- white, baja breeze, choc chip, Parisian breeze dp
accessories/tools- circle nesties, oval punches, paper piercer, word window punch, white brads, felt ribbon, button, linen thread, sewing machine, copics (E25, E27, E29, E31, E33, YR04)

Also going with the graduation theme I thought I would show you a picture of my middle daughter Lindsey who was our cute little kindergarten graduate. Mom was pretty good and didn't cry too much LOL.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!

How sweet! Your card is awesome (as usual), but your little daughter is so sweet. I bawled my eyes out at my daughter's kindergarten graduation last year!! How quickly they grow up!
