Graduate Edwin

Life has been very busy lately. I had to have my dog put to sleep. She was 16 years old and I think she had a stroke. Poor thing was so tired and having trouble moving her back quarters. It was time but oh so sad. 
Then I had to get my dd ready to go to Boy Scout Camp. She is going to work there this summer. I think this is a hoot. She will be in a Boy Scout uniform and driving a truck. This is my daughter who puts on a dress and says it makes her so happy. I want to be a fly on the wall and see how she does. 

Anyway I finally made time to make another card. 




Isn't Edwin just so proud of his accomplishment, as well he should be, it takes a lot of hard work to graduate. He is colored with copics. I used a white pen to make the details of his shoes shoe up. I have trouble in really small areas using the copics. The red glitter is from art institute glittering system. The glitter on the tassel and the stars are stickles. The stars are from a retired angel company set. The dp is  from basic grey and the banner was done with word.

Here are a couple of pics of the inside.

Now you can see it with the gift card.  Now to get it mailed out. 
I really enjoy your comment; they do lift my spirits.

Love the way you did this image Peggie. I knew you liked HM but didn't realize you were into the Maggies also. Something else to talk about.

Love your graduate card. I think I need to get that stamp. I just had to make a card and I didn't have a "graduate" to put on it. Edwin is adorable. Your coloring is really great! Sorry to hear about your dog. That is so hard. Been there....done that and now have a large pit bull that is having problems. Our heart is aching for him and we are worried what we are going to have to do too.

Hi Peggie...I'm so sorry about your dog. I had to put one of our pups to sleep recently...Blossom had been with me through think and thin...she was 18 years old...pretty good for a toy poodle. I think she had a stroke too...and, like you day, it was time...but I still miss her. And I laughed when I read about your daughter going to Boy Scout Camp. I actually had to read that twice!! LOL!! Such a gorgeous card, Peggie! I have this Edwin and Tilda...and haven't even inked them up. Shame on me! Your coloring is so pretty...and I love the sparkles. The inside is simply fabulous!! Love the sentiment...and the red lettering is perfect!! Hugs. Pat
