a graduation card...sort of.

My sweet mom was kind enough to water our grass when we were in Florida a few weeks ago. When we got back I had a note on my desk requesting some graduation cards. Unfortunately, she won't be able to use these until next year, but I started working on some tonight.

When I sat down to get started, I realized I don't have any graduation stamps, so I had to improvise. Most of the kids that we attend graduation go to Wilson Central so they used their colors. Here's what I came up with:
Stamps: Damask, Life
Paper: Almost Navy, So Saffron
Ink: White Craft, Yellow Colorbox

And here's a funny story. So I get flowers from my mom pretty frequently. A few weeks ago a dug up some of her baby hydrangea bushes. I planted both. One is alive, but not growing that fast. The other that I planned took off. I was so excited. Then one day I really took a good luck at it, and I realized it's not a hydrangea bush. Somehow my mom had a tiny little Sunflower growing under her bush. No wonder it took off! It grows so fast. Here is now:
