Family Friday - Graduation


 Family Friday
Graduation Day

Wow, this is getting to be a habit.  I've posted three time this week.  I think that's some kind of record for me.  So I mentioned on Tuesday that I've received 5 graduation announcements so far this year.    So it's been a little busy in my craft room trying to get out a few cards and have a few more on hand, just in case. 

I am sharing 2 of my cards today.  I know this is a Family post, but what's more important in a teenager's life than graduating high school?    

So this is what I was able to design using Doodlebugs The Graduate paper line and the Paper Smooches Seeing Stars stamp set.  

First off I have to admit that I used a lot more than just the two items listed above.  I think I brought everything but the kitchen sink out for this years cards.  The first one is for Alex.  Brad really wanted me to work in Pink and Zebra Stripes for her.  Well, I managed the Pink.  I started with a Tidly Inks stamps set with the cutest little girl and I gave her a pink dress. 

Her hat is a Doodlebug Doodle Pop.  I stamped the stars across the bottom and was going to cover them with some Wink of Stella Glitter pen, but decided to use some of my Doodlebug Sprinkle Stars across it. 

Inside I used an old CTHM stamp set.  It's one of the first one's I purchased and find myself using it every year.  

The second card is one of my Extra's for the year.  It's pretty general and can be used for high school or college.  

 The cap and 2014 are glitter elements that come from a cupcake topper package that I picked up at Michaels. 

I used more of the Doodlebug Sprinkle Stars to accent the corners of the card. 

Here's the inside.  The stars are from the Doodlebug The Graduate sticker sheet.  I didn't want anything real think on the inside to keep the card from closing flat.
