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!

Another Graduation Card ~ CAS-ual Fridays

I had an idea and wanted to see if I could pull it off...I think I did!!  I had just gotten the stamp set "Pedal Pusher" from Papertrey Ink and was thinking about the bike, (my grandson rides his bike all around the neighborhood) and thinking I could add stars to the back tails (it comes with hearts on cans, what you might see on the back of a bike or car for someone who just got married) and then I used the hat from "For the Graduate" and had it blowing off the bike...I stamped the lines with class of 2013 in memento london fog hoping it would resemble cement...I think that worked pretty good too. So I am linking this up to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge which you can access HERE. 
The school colors are red and white...so I kept with that theme.

  6. Oh, Colleen, no matter what anyone else says, this is a total winner in my book and it is, in fact, going in my book of keeper's! I am swooning over the movement you created with the placement of your awesome bike, with its star streamers, and the grad hat flying through the air! Wowza!!
