The Graduate!

Good morning! I apologize for being so long between posts! Just busy with end of the school year stuff. Here is Edwin the graduate from my friend, Diana!
Here's the site you can shop on:
Magnolia-licious If you like Edwin stamps just put "Edwin" in the search box and you'll see what Diana has available. If you don't see what you want just email and ask her about it!
Well I colored Edwin with my copic markers:
E000 and E01 for the skin with E93, my new favorite for glowing cheeks!
His robe is C1, 3, 5 and 9 (all the cs I have!)
The black and gray dp is from Basic Grey-can't remember the collection, but it's the one with the oranges with gray and black. I combined it with my solid red in Pure Poppy from PTI.
This card is for a 5 year old who graduates from kindergarten today! He's the son of the aide with whom I work (and my very dear friend!). Now Eileen is my age (well, 7 months older! and I'm 51 for another month! She had Collin at 47 years old! She is wonder woman, I tell ya! We have worked together in a Special Education class for 15 years! We joke that we've lasted longer than most marriages! She and I won't be working together next year (thanks to administrators who think they know everything!) and it's like losing my right arm and getting divorced all at once. With luck, we will still be in the same building.
Okay, enough of my wandering! Congratulations to my little friend, Collin, the graduate!
Hope you have a day to celebrate!

Awww....what a great story to go with an adorable card!!! We've got some switcharoonies going on at our school too...so I can relate...although I have never worked with anyone for 15 years...so I can imagine how hard that is!!
