Crazies: Skating on Thin Ice!

 Happy Weekend!  

First, let me apologize for the late post - blogger didn't launch this yesterday
 (and it's my human error!  I had it scheduled, then edited the post,
 and then left it in draft mode!  SO sorry to the friends at Crazy 4 Challenges!)

 And the reason why it's a late post ...
my oldest daughter graduated from college yesterday!
SO SO proud of this young lady ♥ 
 She started University as an intended nurse, changed to being a special needs teacher, specializing in working with children on the Autism/spectrum and has really found her place in the world.
  It's a selfless job and she has such a true gift for the field. 
 So how appropriately on National Superhero Day, she is mine! ♥ 

She graduated with honors and with an exit scholarship
(either for further schooling or to use for whatever her heart desires!)
 and the best part:  DEBT FREE!  
Not a single penny in student loans!
 Her next step:  her Master's Degree ~ truly the 'world is her oyster'.  

Back to the Crazies!
This is my last card as a guest designer for the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C432.
It has been a fun ride, though landed at a truly CRAZY time in my life :)

THIS WEEK:   Play on words ~ Skating on Thin Ice!
I immediately thought of my latest addition to my Peanuts stamp collection ~
Charlie Brown as coach to Snoopy and the Peanuts gang playing ice hockey!
I paired it with a stamp from another stamp set from Some Odd Girl
because, at least to me, it seems like it went hand in hand :)

Here is my card ↓

Thank you to the Crazy4Challenges for chosing me as a GDT for April!
I will still use the challenges as a springboard to create cards of my own
 as they are very fun challenges!
Be sure to check them out, too, 
as it just may give you an idea for your next card :)

Enjoy the weekend, friends!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
