Guess Who's Graduating?

This is a very special card for my sister in law, Peggy. She is FINALLY graduating from college - at the prime age of 67! Last time I talked to her she said that she was probably going to need a cane or walker to "walk the walk" and pick up her diploma. I recently won a gift certificate over at Art Impressions Stamps and purchased this stamp with her in mind. I added the little hat from Go Graduate (SU). The yellow panel is also stamped with the hat but you probably can't see it unless you click to make it larger.  Hope I'm getting the school colors right here!

We're SO VERY PROUD of you Peggy!

Thanks for stopping by........have a great weekend.
