Graduation does. This card is proof. Ok, so I planned to call this “Tree of Knowledge” or something sappy like that. Then the killer struck. I stamped “Happy Graduation” upside down on the card. I didn’t do it on the first one, but this second one… well! So, I had a choice. I could just suck it up and deal, or tear off the panels and redo. I went for the “deal” thing.
You see, I’m always saying that my definition of perfection isn’t “without flaw.” No, my definition of perfect is “done.” Well, it was done. And it’s kind of cool looking like that. No, I’d rather not have the upside down one, but since I do… WHY NOT?
LOVE this tree though. LOVE it. Just sayin’.
Now that we’ve established that some (if not most) people cannot see the sketches if I link to them as images, I’ve been saving and posting them myself. So, for about the last half dozen cards or so, you should be able to see them. Slowly, I’ll go replace the linked images (that aren’t showing– presumably for non Split Coast Stampers members) with images that I host. So, right now (at least until I can put up something somewhere to give credit for them) I want to point out that the sketches are NOT my creative work. They belong to SCS and are given to the members for their use. So, I’m using them in the hopes that people will be inspired to use them, try it out, and maybe join SCS themselves. It’s free, it’s fun, and look at the wealth of resources at your fingertips! Ok, on to the
