Congratulations Graduate - To My Daughter a 2020 Grad

Today should have been my daughter's senior graduation ceremony.  Instead of graduation, they held the senior awards ceremony virtually.  It was nice but hopefully they will be able to hold a live graduation ceremony later in the summer.

Since she has been a bit down about missing prom, graduation, and all the senior fun this year, my husband and I wanted to do something a little special for her today.   While she was at work this morning, we decorated the dining area to surprise her.  We also asked friends and family for cards so that she would remember there are people who love her and are proud of her.  She was so surprised and happy!

Of course I couldn't let this opportunity pass without making her a special card.  I colored the digital image Graduating Wryn by Tiddly Inks with Copic markers.  I love Wryn and she has always reminded me of my daughter so she was the perfect image for my card.

I paired Wryn with  Echo Park Times and Seasons paper along with some black and white cardstock from my stash and finished it off with a sentiment from Papertrey Ink Mega Mixed Messages

Here is a peek at the decorations.

I am so proud of my daughter.  She graduated Magna Cum Laude.  She is enrolled at the University Wisconsin at Green Bay in the Human Biology program and hopes to be a trauma surgeon one day.    This young lady is not taking a break over summer.  She starts a summer program tomorrow at a local technical college to become an EMT so she can start gaining experience right away.

Thank you for stopping by!  Congratulations to all 2020 graduates - may you do great things and change the world!

This is so lovely Cheryl. I love your colouring. My son graduates this year too. I'm hoping they can get a ceremony later in the year. It would be such a pity for those this year if not. Love Dawn x
