Sketch # 48 and other stuff

Happy Thursday to you all! It's time for another sketch card for Sketches {by tamara}. As usual, she hit another home run with this one. I love what the other ladies on the team have done with it and I sure hope you get the chance to check out their fabulous work.

We would love for you to do the challenge with us and if you do, please add a link to Tamara's blog so we can check it out!

Here is my card for this week's sketch.

Stamps: Butterfly (Rhonna Farrer), Sentiment(Stampin Up). Paper: Cranberry Crisp, Kraft, DP (the paper studio). Ink: Cranberry, Black Stazon. Accessories: Felt Flowers, Buttons, Cuttlebug & Swirls Folder,Piercing Tool, Circle Punch, Square Punch, Sponge Dauber, Metallic Markers (Sharpie).

I had all of the supplies for this card already sitting on my desk so I just went with it. The butterflies were colored using metallic sharpie markers.

I'm sorry that I've been away for the last couple of days. Tuesday was my oldest daughters graduation. They had so many kids (1261) in their graduating class that they had to have the ceremony at Reunion Arena in Dallas. Here are a couple pictures of the group.

Isn't that an amazingly large Senior class? They had four different processional lines and entered from four different areas. It was a good thing, she told us where she would be coming in at or we would have missed her entrance. The cool thing was that we got to see a close up of her as she walked across the stage to recieve her diploma. Notice the jumbotron in the picture. I only teared up at the end when the kids all linked arms and sang their alma mater. All in all, I was really pleased with the whole thing and now I have a graduate in the house. One down, two more to go! Here is my beautiful daughter's Senior picture! I'll be getting her graduation pictures in about three weeks. We are so very proud of her!!!!
That's all I have for now! I've gotta get busy and make some Father's Day cards since it's just a couple days away! Hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping in! TTFN
