PhD Congratulations

 Summer has truly arrived here in Arizona, and it is HOT!  It's our turn now to gripe about the weather, since we have really super nice winter weather.
I have been very busy for the last couple of weeks and trying to catch up with everything, except for blogging.

My friend Luann asked me if I could make her a graduation card for her friend who recently earned her PhD back in Michigan.
I felt that her friend should receive a really nice card after all of her hard work.  I'm very pleased with the result.

  I made an extra card just in case someone else needed one at the last minute.

I want to share the following pictures from our Kentucky Derby Day:
We dressed for the occasion...hat & fascinators!
From left to right: Kate, Gin and moi!  Kate had the fun idea of going to the races for the experience.  We enjoyed it very much, and we'll definitely going back next year and entering the Hat Contest!  We also checked out the fun tents where all the fun was had, and planning on being part of it next time.

 This Lady did a great job with her hat and she was so adorable and full of spirit!

This beautiful lady was the 1st. place winner for her hat, and her outfit was perfect for the event.  I wish we had a good picture of her winning hat.

I hope your day is a great one!
