One of my crafty friends graduated from UH this month. I didn't get a chance to go to her graduation, but I did make her a card. Since I don't get to use my graduation stamps too often, I dug this one out of storage and dusted it off. I'm glad I bought this stamp many moons ago. I think this stamp company went out of business, but I later heard that you can get them again, but can't remember what the name of the new company is.
Decided to use Kiyomi this time and didn't realize it till afterwards that the recipient's daughter is named Kiyomi too! Neat-o. Maybe I should pretend that I planned it that way? ha ha ha. Actually I was happy to find a partially colored Kiyomi in my stash. Yay! Less coloring for me!
I wanted to make it look like Kiyomi threw her cap in the air, like many graduates do after they walk the line. I was looking for some dotted lines in my collection of stamps and surprisingly, the only one I could find was part of this new clear set that I got by Lawn Fawn. It was part of a bee set. Love how the dotted lines form a heart!
UH's colors are red and white (I think!), so I went with those colors on the card. Here's a better look at Kiyomi....
Oki doki. I'm thinking I'm going dark on this blog for a bit. Need to do some posting for Sister Stamps Release #14 and have some family stuff to attend to, so bye for now!!
