My niece, Ally, will be graduating tomorrow from Kailua High School. Yay Blue & White! I am working on making her name sign for after the graduation, which seems to be a tradition. It's so your family and friends can find you in the mass of people after the ceremony. I will post a pic of it when I'm all done. Still putting the finishing touches on it
Here is a card I made for my mom and dad to give to her. I yet have to make one from my family :)
This card is a very simple card, partly because I did it in a rush when mom said, "did you make my card for Ally yet?" "Uh, no, not yet." "Should I go out and buy one then?" - "no, I'll make it right now." Anyone else go through this? I love my mom very much, but sometimes I wish they could kind of go with my flow, know what I mean?? Their generation likes to have everything all set in advance. Not that I don't agree, but with the way my life is (scream!) it's so hard to do everything that I'm supposed to do all in advance. Did you all just advise me to start saying NO to all the stuff that I commit myself to doing??? I'm trying, really!
Sorry to ramble about this. On to the card! Simple, that's all I can say. it's not bad, but if I do another card like this, I would run the front of the card in a CB emboss folder to add some texture. I've been liking my embellishments to "pop" out and use either a double layer of dimensionals or a higher foam tape (that I got from Cute Stuff).
This is the inside of the card. I adhered a glassine envelope to the left side of the card for the moolah. I guess it would also be a good place to hold a giftcard too. It looked so plain, so had to jazz it up. I used the large and small star and adhered it to the tip of the flap. Kind of adds a little fun to the envelope.
Supplies: Brilliant blue, whisper white cardstock, white organdy ribbon, Stamp set: Great Grads. Brilliant Blue ink. Marvy mega scallop circle punch, mega circle punch, dimensionals, large and small SU star punches, glassine envelope.
It was a short week with the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, but for some reason, the week felt longer than usual...I guess trying to jam 5 days into 4...how's that for running on a high stress level! haha! Looking forward to crafting with Darcie and Jean at lunch today. We're making flip albums!! yay!! Also, getting my hands on the new CTMH catty from Jean.
Thanks for visiting today. TGIF is all I can say. It's gonna be a long and busy weekend. I will be doing classes this weekend at CUTE STUFF. We will be making a peek-a-boo card featuring the dude and hula girl penguins and also a larger waterfall card featuring the Stampendous Changito monkeys!! There's still room if you'd like to join us.
**sigh** Nolan is running a fever again and it seems like his cough got worse. Talk about keeping me on my toes! Can we say Calgon???
