Graduation Card

I have just a couple of graduation cards to do this year. Here's one of them. I forgot to ink the edges, but I think you can still make out the title pretty well.

Paper is DCWV and Recollections
Rhinestones are Darice
Ribbon is KI self-adhesive
I used Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing folders.
The cut file is one I created and can be found on my blog. I sprayed it with my home-made glimmer mist.
I don't remember where I picked up the artesian label, sorry.

You've Got Mail! NOT!!!

If I read my email daily, I should walk a short distance to pick my mail. But I didn't for the last 3 days and when I did go this morning, the mail cluster was GONE! I can laugh about it now but you can just imagine my surprise. I notified my credit cards and banks so I'm good with that. As far as bills, I'm a bit of a nerd and I keep a spreadsheet/schedule of all my bills. So I know I won't be missing a payment on them. The way I see it, I'm glad that it wasn't my car or my home that was broken into. Thank God for that.

So please remember to pick up your mail daily if your mail gets delivered to a mail cluster. LOL

Here's a card I made for my sister, Letty. The AC, DC are the initials of her kids, my Godchildren. She teases she will get the logo tattoo on her arm. LOL

I used my Gelly Roll stardust on the bolt.
Pattern paper is DCWV and solid colors are from scraps.
Flowers are Imaginisce
Rhinestons from Darice

My Mom's Card

I broke out my "pretties" for this card. The printed paper is K & Co. and the solids are Recollections. I used Prima and Making Memories flowers. The ribbon is KI self adhesive! That's a nice surprise, it's so much easier to use. I used Dazzling Diamons Glimmer Mist on the face of the card. The pink was a bit bright so I use my Gelly Roll stardust pen to tone it down. It kinda worked. Again, I used Making Memories eyelets to secure the face of the card. The SVG is my own.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day ladies! I'm not a mom but I am a WONDERFUL GODMOTHER and AUNT, so HAPPY DAY TO ME TOO! LOL
Here's a card I made for my mother-in-law.

Paper is DCWV and Recollections.

I used Making Memories eyelets to secure the top part of the card. After I added the paper and flowers it got heavy and I wanted to make sure it didn't fall apart.

Flowers are from Michael's dollar bin by Studio 18
The SVG is one I created.
I used Gelly Roll pen to bring sparkle to the title.
Rhinestones are Darice.
