Graduation Day


Tonight we are going to my niece's High School Graduation. Wow, I feel old today! I just don't know how we got here so quickly. And it's now only one more year until my first baby graduates, too.

Anyway, enough of the sentimental stuff, here is the card I made for my niece. I made it a 5x5 so that I would have enough room to write and include my little check enclosure. I started with white whisper card stock and stamped the graduation caps from the set Little Layers Plus and the flowers from Little Pieces using Basic Black and Real Red. The sentiment comes from All Year Cheer. I added red brads in the two o's and layered with red and then black. I also used my corner rounder on the white and red layer of the sentiment and the bottom of the card. I tied the layers to the card with red grosgrain and added a scrap of black grosgrain into a square knot.

For the check enclosure I wrote a little poem and printed it on the computer, folded it up and glued it together. Then I tucked the check right in there. I even stamped a little on the envelope, which is something I rarely do.

On a personal note, I will probably not be posting too often as I have a big new job at Church that is taking a lot of my time. Not to mention that summer is here and the kids are demanding attention. It's always more fun to play and hang out with the kids that to sit at the computer anyway. Talk to ya soon(er or later)!
