WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!!! Today we are celebrating our son's graduation from Basic Combat Training in the U. S. Army at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. It has been two and a half months since he left home and yesterday we were privileged to spend quality time with him during Family Day. He'll leave Saturday morning headed to San Antonio, Texas where he will complete his Advanced Individual Training and become a Biomedical Equipment Specialist. Next May he will graduate AIT and from there we are not sure where he will be stationed or deployed. One thing is for certain though, he has a bright future ahead of him and we are honored to be his parents.

I used the Deconstructed Sketch No. 57 for inspiration and I'm also entering this in the Make It Monday No. 95 linky party & The Kraft Journal: Anything Goes challenge.

Here's a photo of the inside using three different stamps to convey our message to him.

Hope each of you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by today!

This card is such a great style for a guy and the sentiment is so personal. You must be so proud of his achievements, and all those yet to come.

Congrats to you too (*wink*). I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.
