Just a Note (I’m Proud of You)


Good morning!  It’s a short week here in Canada as we gear up for our Victoria Day long weekend :)  I’ve been making cards and scheduling posts like a mad woman so I can enjoy a few days with the dh :)  Today’s card is for my son.  He got his last mark needed for graduation from Civil Engineering.  I wanted to send him a little note before the big day and a little treat…


I couldn’t resist this SB card when I saw it last week.   ACK!  So we’ll be happily traveling to his graduation in a few weeks :)  The new Verve Take Note stamp set was perfect to help me let Jake know how proud I am of his perseverance and patience. 

Take Note

This set is just loaded with sentiments for almost any occasion!  I just love it!  Thanks for stopping by and hope your week has started out right :)


p.s. I almost forgot to share the poem I added inside…I found it years ago and just typed it on the inside of the card.

I hope your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles,

to the highest of your hopes,

to the windows of your opportunities,

and to the most special places your heart has even known.
