 I have done three graduation cards for the three main local High Schools.  I have shown the Red and White Card before but since it is the season and I just finished these for a local shop I thought I would share them today.   The Blue and Gold is for Chestnut High School Grads.

Royal Blue and White are the colors for Bedford High School.

And my favorite ........... Red and White for my Everett High School.

Cooper's Second Birthday

Wanted to share this little card I made for our Grandson Cooper who turns two years old today.  He and his family are in Thialand for two years so I had to get this together a few weeks early.  Hopefully it arrived there today for his birthday.  I added a little dino on the envelope and inside so he got his fill of dinos.  lol  This is a Stampin' Up Retired Stamp Set.

A TEN MINUTE CARD.  I always seem to forget about a birthday.  A ten minute quickie card is the answer.  Here I used some retired DSP and the Cupcake Punch to make this 10 minute card.  Inside the Happy Birthday is from Curly Cute Stamp Set and the outside sentiment "happy birthday with a cherry on top" is from A Word for You.

Love and Laughter

I used Wisteria Wonder and Black as the main card stock for this card.  The BIG SHOT is one of my favorite tools.  I ran the Wisteria Wonder through the BIG SHOT using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and cut out the oval using the Oval Die

Button Buddies and More

A Birthday Card for my friend Cherry.  When my sister came up with this plaid technique for her Club in March, I knew I had to save this card for my friend.  This background paper is made by using the striped Embossing Folder and inking the strips then placing the Whisper White Card Stock in the middle of the folder and running it through the BIG SHOT.  Turn the paper in the opposite direction and run it through the BIG SHOT a  second time.
