You Did It!
Hi, everyone hope you are having a fabulous week so far.
I have a card to share with you today that I made for my Grandson that is in the Navy attending his schooling to become a Sonar Tech on a submarine. The schooling is pretty intense and has several phases, well he finally finished all the required classes he need before he could start his A School which is the specific schooling for his job. He did very well in his class so I wanted to encourage him to keep up the good work.
The papers are all from the K&Company Americana stack, with two grandsons in the Navy this paper stack has come in handy.
The center circle was cut using the Wild Card cartridge, I love the uneven circle. The dark blue I Cuttlebugged with a striped folder and the center white I used the stars folder. The "You Did It" is also cut from Wild Card.
The large star on the upper left hand side is actually just a circle I cut from one of the sheets in the paper stack.
The sticker is an epoxy sticker I had on hand and I thought it worked perfectly here. I am constantly on the hunt for Navy related things.
I stamped the inside with this Rubbernecker stamp. My grandson is very determined to finish with a very high score in his A School so that he has a better chance of picking the sub he would like to serve on, it is not a guarantee but you have a better chance if you score high in your class. I thought this stamp would encourage to keep trying and studying hard.
Just a little FYI, both of the grandsons are Sonar Techs, the first one already finished his schooling the beginning of this year, but is still waiting to go on that first underway.
Well thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
