This last week was a busy one for us graduation party wise. I still have a few cards to mail out - and then I'm set until 2013. Since our Allan is graduating next year, I've decided I'd do well to make a card a week throughout the year instead of panic making during the busy time. We'll see if I can stay on track.
For the above card, I pulled together a random assortment of elements that just happened to be on my desk at the same time. I think it worked.
It's pretty seldom that I'll buy themed paper, but I will when it comes to graduation paper because it gives a good launching pad for cards. The paper teamed up with my new $2.99 Cap & Gown Seal stamp - perfect!
Then for this one - I already had the base of the card put together - probably from a previous idea that I never followed through on - so pulled out again, I decided it would go well with these stamps. I love this Grad stamp because it's so easy to cut around for something like I did here, but is also a fun one to stamp directly. It's quickly become a well used stamp in my collection.
Now to tackle my Monday.
I had thought I might be lazy about today after a busy weekend, but it's impossible for me to be lazy on a Monday. The laundry is humming, the lists have been made, I should do a grocery run, and the bills need to be paid....
