I won!

Wow! Awesome! Unbelievable!
That is just some of the words I am feeling at this moment. Found out last night that I had won a cool mini-album from Artsy Addicts. How cool is that!

I look forward to using this, we've had a couple big events this month and this maybe the method to scrapping one of the events.
Thanks so much to Marion Smith for this awesome prize!

For the Graduate

Hi and welcome to my blog. I am the designer today at the Card A Day Blog and the theme is Graduation. I made this card for a friend's daughter that is graduating this year.

See my friend, home school's her kids and they have the ceremony at the Church where the co-op is held. Because of this there is no school colors so I chose primary colors for the caps and switched up the tassels. The caps were cut from the cricut cartridge Everyday paper dolls @ 3/4". The ribbon border was in my stash and I matted the card with a scrap of black cardstock and dry embossed it with my cuttlebug with the folder: circles to give it a nice textured background. It is a white cardstock base from: The paper company pack of paper. The scallop is a spellbinders die and the stamp is from my collection stamped in SU basic black. The scallop is popped up with 1/16" dots. A sweet card for the graduate. I will add something special to the inside a quote from somewhere not sure of that quite yet. I have the book Saying it with Style and will find something sweet in there and a little something from me. It's a very fast card to put together once all the pieces are cut out and you could make it in the school colors.
Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a fantastic day!
