Congratulations to my Smarty Pants

Oh what a busy and exciting time!  My husband (TLC)  finally turned in his thesis – over six years of grad school culminated into a 200 page document.  Now that he has turned it in, we officially have a date for his defense November 20th.  Less than two weeks to go.

Congratulations Smarty Pants Card made with stamps from JadedBlossom.com. I just love that owl!

In honor of turning in the thesis to his committee I made this adorable owl card.  The smart owl and “congratulations” stamps are both from Jaded Blossom.  Jaded blossom was one of the first craft blogs I started to follow and recently purchased a few of their stamps.  I fell in love with the little owl stamp, and originally purchased it to make a card for my husband’s defense.  But this week has been stressful for him trying to organize everything, and really needed a pick me up.  It has been a stressful week so far, but now is a calm before the storm.  The defense is up coming along with edits to the dissertation and writing of papers.

Fall flowers and card waiting on the table for my husband.

I also picked up some flowers as a surprise for my TLC from the grocery store.  Who says flowers are just for girls.?  Besides the fall colors really look great on the table.

It is great to finally have a date set for TLC’s defense the end of his graduate school career. We will be moving sometime in December to the Seattle area.  I grew up near there so it will be good to be heading toward family and old friends.  TLC has a job lined up for January and I am left with some soul searching to do about my career life.  For now I’m spending plenty of time on craigslist looking at places to live.

I am submitting this fall colored card to the Young Crafter’s Unite Challenge #15, Warm and Cozy colors.    This is my first time entering a YCU challenge.  I am inspired by their design team.

I am also submitting to the CAS(E) this Sketch!  I love the little half circles.  I used plenty of them on my card.
