TGF Challenge Card

Yup - it's Wednesday again and that means the Greeting Farm Challenge! This week's challenge was to use the following sketch to make a card:




And here is my card! It is 6x6 and features all CTMH supplies (except for the Grad Ian stamp).



Many of you ask how I possibly have time to stamp, make cards, scrapbook and knit... well it's mainly because for the last 4 years, Dave has had homework and group projects and books to read and papers to write EVERY NIGHT! This card is for Dave to celebrate his graduation from WSU on July 31st and I cannot WAIT! I will finally have my husband all to myself again! YIPPEEE!!!!

To all the other "college widows" out there keep the faith. Eventually they will be done, and oh what a sweet day it is when that happens (I hear!).

PS - Yes, "congrads" was intentional. I wanted it to be a play on "graduation". :)

Dumb question but was "congrads" intentional or a misspelling of congrats? Sorry I am not trying to be picky but love your artwork and just had to make sure...
