Hello There! I hope everyone had a memorable 4th of July. Our celebrations started on Wednesday and just ended yesterday. And as usual we had lots of family over. We played games, had great food and fun conversations. This year instead of showing a movie, we had a tribute to Michael Jackson. We have a lot of his music videos on DVD and we played those and danced and sang. Say or think what you will about MJ, he was a Master with music and it was a joy to see my mom dancing and singing to the same songs that my 13 year old was singing and dancing to. MJ's music is woven into the fabric of all of our lives and he will be missed. One more thing...my dad worked with abandoned and troubled youth for many years. The facility where he worked was visited and supported by many celebrities. Michael J was a huge supporter of the facility and he visited often, as well as making donations of his time, money and material things, like clothing, shoes, etc. I never got the opportunity to meet him, but my dad did. He told us that he thought Michael was a very misunderstood, sad and child-like young man.
Okay onto the card...
This is another graduation card. It is very simple in design. I was inspired by a card I saw on Nichole's blog...sorry I can't find it now to link directly to it. I did pierce along the flourish and the center focal is mounted on foam tape. The brown you see there is a piece of dark chocolate satin ribbon...nothing too fancy. The inside is decorated a bit and there is a slot for money or a money card. I think this is the last of them!
