It's Friday's challenge...graduation or congrats

Today's challenge at notimetostamp is to do a graduation or congratulation type card. I have no need for a graduation card at this point so I did a congrats card. I hope I can give myself congratulations by getting a gas bill for my heating under $500...that would be something to really celebrate. Where the heck is the spring weather when you need it to lower those high bills??? It's actually snowing here, can you believe that?? Me neither! Well my card is so simple, ivory card layered with black and then some K & Company BG paper and get out the Nestie for the label cut and the fancy tag one to back it. My stamp is Hero Arts and I did add some little beads to jazz it up a bit and that's that.
Well happy weekend fellow stampers. Nothing on the horizon but I guess a good movie will do and some peace and quiet. Who am I kidding...that's the story of my old life, I really need some fun and games to spice up the action around here. Yesterday at the coffee shop the manager offered up her 60 year old father and when I told her he was a bit too young she spewed coffee out. She was agast when I told her I was an old lady and she said ....what he don't know won't hurt him. Well I'll give that a bit of thought and maybe just jump in. Smiles to all.

Great card Pat!!! You would never go for it...or am I betting wrong? I have been single for years and I can tell you this...I am happy as a Lark!!! Now I just read some of the comments and it seems that I am the only one who feels that way!!! Sorry, I am speaking for myself here...
