Basic Training Congrats -

Hello & Happy New Year my Crafty Friends!
I hope you all had a great weekend, enjoying
the New Year Celebrations - I had New Years Day off
to spend with my Family then back to work on the 2nd!
No New Year's Resolutions here - but I always try to make
myself a better person than I was the year before - :)

Today, I'm gonna share the card I made for my Son's
Boot Camp Graduation, which is coming up in 2 1/2 weeks!
I so can't wait to see him, and in his uniform at that!
This is one Proud Marine Mom!!! :)

The file I'm using today is from KaDoodle Bug Designs

Now, My son is NOT in the Army, so I had to 
change the hat color to suit the Marine's!
The Boots match the Marine's already, but no 
green hat goes upon his head! :)

Here's what I created -

I honestly like how it turned out and I think he will too! 
I did do the inside as well, but got lazy about taking the picture -

  10. REally, really cute! Congrats on being a military is hard but few things will make you more proud! Now, since I'm a proud wife of a retired Army husband and of a former Army mom I must say...heeeeyyyy, nothing wrong with the Army so watch yourself girlie! (That was said all in jest!!) I found graduation from Basic Training to be such a neat time with my son...I hope you will be able to make it and enjoy it too!

  11. Congrats for your son! My son will be shipping out this year for his 1st four year assignment in Germany, very exciting and such a great card!
