Retired BNF Friday #7

Well, the countdown for the last day of the school year is definitely on. This is my kids' last Friday of school, next Thursday will be my son's High School graduation. It has been crazy busy. My days have been filled with tasks and dates/deadlines to remember, both in the office and at home. Sometimes I amaze myself how I do it all and still manage to stay sane (most of the Oh well, c'est la vie! My final Stampin' Up! order for the 2011/2012 Catalog came in last night. I was up late playing with my sneak peek goodies. I got the new In Colors and I have not made up my mind if I like the reconfigured stamp pads. I feel it's too juicy for me. Hahaha!

Oh well, I have two cards to share today for my son's upcoming graduation. The first one is from my all-time faves, Sail Away; and the other one is from the recent Sale-a-Bration stamp sets called Sprinkled Expressions. I am completely in-love with Sponge Daubers! All these many years I have been using the sponges, but the daubers are more precise and it gives off more impact just like when I used them in the background night sky of this sail boat and the waves. Plus I love how it fits in my finger. I am seriously contemplating on using it to apply my makeup. Hahaha.
