Graduation Weekend

Hi peeps! Happy Monday. Phew... This weekend sure flew by fast. On Friday, between work and all, we sneak out to see my niece receiving her honor awards. She graduated magna cum laude and received a few scholarships. This girl is proof that there's good teenager. She's talented (she used to sing for the Houston opera & in her school choir), smart, polite & most important, she's kind. Yep, we are so proud of her. Her parents really did a wonderful job in raising her.

Then on Saturday, my mom and I went to an event called Puppies for Breakfast which is a fundraising event for local rescues in Houston. We only took Eli with us, because it would be impossible for us to take all 3 dogs without going crazy. Afterward, hubby took Eli home while my mom & I went to the outlet for some retail therapy. Hah! That was a good day!

Sunday, we attended our niece graduation ceremony & party. I have to say it kind of did make me feel old. Our niece, Maddy really hold a special place in my heart, because she's the one who got all excited when hubby and I first dating & when we got engaged. Back then, she was all shy & definitely shorter than me. Can't say that anymore. She's no longer shy and way taller than me now. Here's a pic from her graduation party. And, I am sure glad that my mom is here to celebrate along with us.

Anyhoo... on to card. Last week, Purple Onion Designs released Stacey Yacula's Garden Blooms collection, which contains 34 new images within a total of 25 stamps/sets. And, until May 30th the entire collection can be purchased for $90.00 .

Here's my card featuring Oliver from the Garden Blooms collection.

I combined him with some stamps from previous releases. He's adorable, right with the snazzy hat on him?! 

Well peeps, that's all from me on this fine day. May your weeks starts off wonderfully. Cheers.
