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 -

Here's the Card Recipe -

Congratulations to your son -what an amazing achievement! I know you must be bursting with pride, and rightly so.

I love this adorable (but in a manly, Marine sort of way) card. The penguin is super cute and I love all the added military embellishments.

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!
