Congrats on your degree !


Happy Friday to you all, hope you are having a fantastic day ! I have had a wonderful day off getting pampered with a pedicure and manicure and getting some things done I wanted to do. It is a really special weekend for me because tomorrow I will be watching my son Phillip walk with the University of Phoenix graduating class of 2010 with his Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I am so proud of him ..... Congrats to you Phillip ! Way to go....
Well this little card is for him and it is the first little Edwin I have ever done, he is #152 heart breaker Edwin from the "Raising the ceiling collection" and you can get him here from Diana. I love his little wings cause I have always called my boys my angels. I have followed the sketch at Magnolia-licious Highlites. The DP's are TPC studio, Class act Thoreau's quote. The little cap and diploma are stickers from Jolee's. Copics used B34, B41, E000, E00, E02, E30, E33, E39, C00, C1, C3, C5 and R20. I took a piece of jeans and put some colorless bender on it and dabbed it on his pants to give them a jean look. I added some stickles to his wings for bling. The sentiment in computer generated font is LD Walt, and I had wrote on the diploma.

The inside of the card says " Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.....by Henry David Thoreau.
I am entering this card in the following,
Cute Card Thursday....challenge 111 Boyz to Men
Stmapin' for the Weekend... a card for a male.

Thanks for coming by and sharing in my special moment !
Hugs,
