Happy Thursday!
My work week is done, sure hope I can play some this weekend.  We are supposed to break records for high heat the next 3 days and that should keep me indoors!

I have a graduation card tonight that I am sending to our nephew who graduates from high school in 2 weeks.  So I had to avoid bling and flowers, since a teenage boy would not be very happy with that! HA!

This is a Taylored Expressions stamp.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder, nesties dies and Basic Grey dp.

I am entering this in the My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge - embossing,
Craft-Room Challenge - embossing,
CraftyMess Challenge Blog - embossing or distressing.

Thanks for stopping by!
