Great Things Will Happen

Hi All!  I've got just a quick little post today :)  It seems like there's always a lot of turnover when you work for a big employer so I've found myself making lots of 'Congrats/Goodbye' cards lately.  When I was thinking about this particular recipient and how they are moving into a residency program in their field after achiving the accomplishment of a graduate degree I knew that I wanted it to be something encouraging about being able to follow their dreams.  I could think of nothing better than using my Little Dreamer stamp set from The Greeting Farm.  It has the cutest images and the perfect sentiments.  When I was coloring this little guy up I couldn't resist doing his hair in this orange red combo that's become a personal favorite; this stamp just lends itself to the doing something eye catching.  Following the challenge over at Cupcake Craft, to have something starting with C, I did this card Clean and simple- plus it was kind of last minute that I was asked so I had to have something that I could put together quickly- but with the sweet image and perfect sentiment I think came together wonderfully.  It kinda makes me want to play the 'what do you want to be when you grow up' game- do you think professional card maker is a option?
