Tis the season for graduations!

Good evening! I have a quick card to share with you tonight and if you couldn't tell by the title of my post - it is a graduation card.

When I saw this week's sketch over at Try Stampin - Or Not - On Tuesday, I knew I wanted to use it to make my card. Here is the sketch:

and my card:

My youngest son, Shane was to graduate from the 8th grade on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, when we got there he had a major meltdown and we felt it was better for him to not participate in the ceremony. Ah - the adventures of having a child with autism - you just never know what's going to happen! But before we left they did want to give him his diploma, so we met in the hallway outside of his classroom, where it was much calmer and quieter, and he received his diploma. I can't believe my baby will be a freshman next year!

If you haven't checked out the Try Stampin  - Or Not - On Tuesday's challenge blog, be sure to stop by and check them out. They have fantastic sketches every week.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with another card for you!
