"Dads &/or Grads" at Sassy Cheryl's


Happy Tuesday, kiddos! Well, it's getting to be that time of year again! A time for us to celebrate graduations . . . and fathers! So, how clever is it that our very own Sassy Miz Peggy has selected "Celebrate Dads &/or Grads" for this week's theme at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog?! I chose the "Grad" option because Sassy Cheryl has the cutest graduation images EVER!! What'cha think? . . . .   


Today's card features Sassy Sally!! The image is actually titled "Sassy Sally Graduates in Style" and you can find her HERE at Sassy Cheryl's online store. Here's a bit of a side view . . . .


I've been admiring cards lately that use banners, so I decided this was the perfect card for a banner!! These are from Whimsy . . . and I really like them. I've popped everything up on several foam dimensionals. Here's a photo that really illustrates the 3-D effect . . . .
