Graduating and Ready for Life

     It's a new day and a new challenge this week at QKR Stampede.  Our theme, as always, is "Anything Goes" but we also give you an option if you choose to use it.  This week the optional twist is "Graduation Cards."    

     The image I chose may seem a bit odd for a graduation card, but this plays into a running joke with a dear friend who is completing her grad school work after a 29 year hiatus from her undergrad college days.  I'm very proud of her for completing her Master's degree since she is now in her mid-50s.  When I asked her if she would be ready to take on life now that she's graduating, she said,  "If nothing else presents itself, I can always put on dark glasses and sell pencils on the corner!"  So this seemed an appropriate image for her graduation card.

     The image is called "Blind Dog."  

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image and then fussy cut cut it.  I dug through my stash of scrap booking papers, found two I thought worked well together and used them for the background.

     I used sheer ribbon to wrap around the card front and to tie the triple bow. Each sentiment was printed and hand cut before applying them to the card.

     Come play with us this week.  Remember, while you can use any image from any company, if you use a QKR image or one from our sister line, Eureka, your card will be put into a separate draw just for them and your chances of winning will be increased significantly.

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
