Hi there!

TGIF!  I'm just popping in quick to share with you a graduation card I made for my niece, Chelsea.  She is graduating from Miami University from the nursing program.  I'm so very proud of her!  There were many times she wanted to quit, but she kept going.  She also works at Chipotle's as a manager.  I remember when I was in nursing school with an instructor who was not my favorite, and I nearly quit.  I did my best to encourage Chelsea.  I'm so happy and proud she finished!

For my card I cased it from pinterest.  I did not see a name watermark on it.  I do want to give credit where credit is due.  I changed it up a just a tad.  But, I couldn't resist making it for her.  Her graduation is Sunday on Mother's Day.  And, it is three and half hours from us.  But, I just have to be there!  My son is coming up tomorrow to celebrate Mother's Day, and we'll probably go out to dinner.  It's a busy weekend, but a fun one! Here is a pic of my niece that she took on her last clinical day last week...

Chelsea is a beautiful girl inside and out!  She wants to specialize in pediatric nursing.  She will make an excellent nurse!

Ok, well that's all for now.  Thanks so much for dropping by!  I wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day...enjoy!



  1. What a special card for the new nurse, Maria! I still remember graduation & the pride of being able to write RN--once I'd passed my boards! Good luck to Chelsea! My uncle & family came to my graduation--a 4 hr drive & it meant the world to me!

  2. Awesome card, Maria! Congrats to your niece. Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Omgoodness, this card is just brilliant, Maria! So fun and so perfect for your niece, and I love that you added her name tag to this! I know you are proud of her! Huge congratulations to all, and wishing you a very happy Mother's Day!
