Fabulous Freebie Friday

It's Friday and the start of a long weekend is here!  I'd say that in itself is cause for celebration!  But in case it's not enough, how about another fabulous freebie from Sassy Studio Designs?!  Yup, that's what I thought!  So if you head over to our Paper Craft Planet group, today we have a wonderful graduation image for you called Sandra's Graduation.  Sandra is a bit more mature so she is perfect for those college grads, but she'd work for high school as well.  She will be available for 24 hours so be sure to take advantage of this amazing freebie while you can!  And if you have time in between the beach and the barbeques this weekend maybe you'll play along with our FFF challenge there as well!  A new challenge starts every fortnight.  One begins today with a theme of, appropriately enough, CELEBRATIONS.  All you need to do for a chance to win 2 Sassy images of your choice is make a card using any of our Sassy images for one of life's celebrations!  It could be anything - birthday, wedding, new baby, graduation...

My card is a bit of an non-traditional graduation card but was custom made for the recipient.  This young woman will be moving to St. Croix after graduation to work in the field she studied in school!  That's one lucky lady and worthy of celebrating if you ask me!

I actually don't have a lot of details to share about this card...  Papers were from my stash and have been there for a very long time.  The palm tree image is a free clip art I found somewhere online.  (I really need to jot these things down!!)  I printed it, colored it, and cut it out using the Spellbinders Beaded Ovals Nestabilities, which I them sponged with some SU Pool Party ink.  I love this color and I'll be so sad to see it being retired!  Flowers are Recollections from Michaels.  I added a punched sand dollar (Martha Stewart) and a tiny starfish sent to me by a dear crafty friend who lives in Florida.  It was the last one in my stash.

My layout is sketch #117 from Totally Papercrafts, but I think I may have missed the deadline for the linky.  Oh, well.  I just liked the sketch and it was exactly what I needed!

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Celebrate the Occasion: #63-Graduation 
- Top Tip Tuesday: #77- Dig Out The Old (use something more than 6 months old: papers and starfish)
- Use It Tuesday: #32- Use Two (use 2 hoarded items: papers and starfish)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by PCP to see what the rest of the Fabettes have to share!  It is with much pomp and circumstance that we say good-bye to this class of FFF gals!  They are moving on to a new assignment at SSD and next week we will welcome our new group of Fabettes!  So be sure to leave some extra love for them this week!  Have a fantastic Friday!
