He did it!

Our third son graduated from college this week with a degree in Computer Science.  It’s been quite a ride for Gary.  Going to school full-time with a family and working 30 hours a week… but he did it!  His dad and I are SO PROUD of him!  And you know what the very best part of it is?  He got a job.. in his field of study as a programmer!!  Yeah!!

He just recently had a birthday, too.  The sentiment is stamped on an Inchie.  Love those things!

And since I still need a few more, I used the same-ish sketch for a quick Christmas card.

Again, an Inchie was used for the sentiment as well as an Inchie+ for even more dimension.

JOY!  That is what I’m feeling today.  So much to be grateful for….

Thanks for dropping by.  Happy Crafting!
