It's Tuesday!! Time for a NEW Challenge at Shopping our Stash.

Hello family, friends and followers!!! Wasn't it a gorgeously "hot" weekend, lots of sunshine here in SWO!! I had time to make a card for Shopping Our Stash!! challenge #356 ~~ Pomp and Circumstance which translates to a Graduation card or just a Congrats card will do.  I had a chance to take advantage of the Friday Freebie from Bugaboo Stamps and it was a grad. image. They have a different freebie every Friday.

Not my usual mouse image this time but it's a super cute Grad Mouse from Bugaboo Stamps,  Although the image is new I used my original spellbinders oval dies and the cardstock is probably a couple of years old.

Close up of the image.

Oh look finished with out the sentiment, I have a great grad . sentiment and  I neglected to bring it to the cottage,  Well be prepared there will be a lot of darn I forgot "something" at home, or didn't think to pack it.  I brought my big shot but only brought the magnetic platform so there went any idea of embossing the background.  I just need to pack smarter.

Thanks for stopping by today and head over to the Main Blog and check out what the rest of the design team have made.

Oh Barbara, I adore the proud and satisfy expression on this little mousie's face, what a sweet image and beautiful Graduation card.
The "Congratulations" die cut is awesome.

Your image is just adorable and I love the blue and white palette. Using the ovals pulls in the shape of your image and all the blues and whites make the pink interior of the ears a strong focal point that just draws the eye in. Excellent composition and very nicely executed.

Actually, I love the fact that there is not sentiment. Graduation is not an ending but a beginning that will be written by the Grad.
