One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

retrosketches #13...

I needed a graduation card for a young girl who has worked for us for 7 years..through three years of her high school and through all of her years at Linfield College...and she is graduating with honors in the Nursing Field.  Are we proud of her?  You bet!  What an accomplishment and to do it while working also!  We are proud of her and sad to know that we are losing a valuable employee, but we are so happy that she is going out in the world and fulfilling her dreams!
This is the sketch for this week and I have used the above card for this sketch.  Most all paper, stamps and ink is from Papertrey Inc, the strip of pattern paper is just a random piece from my stash.  The flowers are Rosie Posie and the sentiment is from Daydreamers.  Thank you for taking a look!
