Congratulation Tammy ...


My daughter's neighbor and good friend, Tammy, just completed her schooling to become a nurse. Keep in mind, Tammy is a full time Mom of 2 boys, wife of an EMT, and heaven knows what else! She and my daughter, Carolyn, have been friends for many years now and even though they live next to each other, it's difficult to find time in their busy lives to spend time together! Well, my daughter being the amazing person she is, made the extra effort to arrange to have breakfast out with Tammy this past Friday morning and spend some quality time just enjoying each others company and catching up on each others lives.



Both of these young women are VERY hard working and kind souls. When Carolyn told me that Tammy was finally graduating (a dream come true for her), I of course wanted to make a personal card to send her my best wishes and huge congratulations. I decided to keep it less formal and a little whimsical because Tammy has a bubbly personality and I think she'll like this.
I've created this card using my Crafty Secrets "Feeling Yucky" and "Party Queen" stamp sets. My designer paper is by Foof-a-la and the cardstock I have used is Whisper White and Real Red. I've used my Nestabilities (Label Four) diecuts for the main image panel and SU watercolor pencils/blender pen for the coloring. After cutting out the little ducky with my swivel craft knife, I've given him a little pop with dimensional tape. As you can see, the front of the card has the sentiment "Congrats to You ... and the inside reads "on your Crowning Achievement".
Hope you are having a wonderful day! Pretty quiet here, but it's nice to look out and see the sun shine.
