Congrats to my daughter Jessica!

Today my daughter Jessica is graduating with a degree in Mental Health at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. Even though she is getting her Associates today, she will continue one more year to earn her Bachelor's. She has worked hard for the last 2 years to get where she is at as she is a single mom of a 3 year old and to add full-time college classes plus a part-time job to her life has been hectic. I'm very proud of her today!
I found this cute graduation card on Jackie Topa's blog a long time ago and finally have someone in the family graduating that I could create for. Isn't this card adorable?

Look at the cute little female collar created with the "Scallop Trim Border Punch" and adorned with a "Pearl Jewel":

And the sentiment from the stamp set "Word Play" is so perfect for this type of celebration:

We've got a busy day planned for today so this  post will be short. I'll be back tomorrow with more for you! Have a great weekend.
