Stars Congrats

Our local high school colors are Red, White, and Blue and the team nickname is Stars. (They consolidated 7 schools into a new one in 1976--bicentennial year). So grad cards for them are in that theme.
I used a SU stencil and Real Red for the background. The Star dies are from CAS-ual Friday Stamps. The congrats is also SU.
Casual Fridays for sketch
Just Us Girls for using stencils

and Tuesday Throwdown for Crop Your Image.
I have been absent from bogland for awhile, cleaning and updating the craft room. I have to use a small guest room and it was always such a mess to clean up when I have guests. So my dear sweet talented husband made this platform bed with 3 big drawers. Now I only have out the designer paper, scrap bin, and some coloring tools.
and a shelf unit at the end
A couple of years ago, he did this desk

Not a lot of work surface but everything is organized and handy now. I especially love the ribbon holders at the right side, much better than lined up or thrown into a bin.


  1. Your card is great - very versatile design. But that bed!!! It's fantastic!!! Do you rent out that talented husband of yours? Tell him he's got a new fan of his woodworking skills. :)

  2. Great job on this! Love how it goes so well with the school colors and theme! Thanks so much for linking up this week at JUGS!

  3. A fabulous card that draws inspiration from the school colours and theme. Sure to be a hit with the grads! Your bed and desk are amazing! Talk about a talented husband! Thrilled that you joined us in the JUGS gallery this week; hope to see you there often!

  4. What a great Congrats card! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown!
