Texas Star

Fridays we have birthday lunch/movie dates with all the girlfriends. This week I am busy with graduation tasks, but I sent my card anyway. Our friend from Texas is having a birthday this month and she sports "Texas Star" on her license plates, so I decided to make her card reflect that.....

Graduation Card West High Bears

This grad card is actually for my daughter, however it is coming from a neighbor who knows better than to buy a "store graduation card" when I make cards and gifts myself. Good choice on her part and Brit will love it.....right?

Senior High Thank You's

Our daughter's best friend since they were 12 months old, goes to the 'other' school in our city and she is also giving gifts and cards to her teachers as thank you's. These are the cards she is using and the gifts I have yet to finish, but they are pretty cute too.

A thank you note for a friend, and yes you can see I used these same notes with the die cut that I used in the other tags....Find something that works and run with it. That is what makes it work when your busy.

Teacher Thank You's

These are a couple teacher thank you cards that our daughter is giving to her favorite teachers as she graduates high school and moves on to a new journey in her life. I just printed the words on my computer and the rest is just a blank card to write on the inside.

West High Graduation Gift Card

Hello.....is everyone busy with graduation ideas? Here is a gift card holder with a belly band I made for one of the many grad parties we are attending. I should have slipped the gift card in so you could actually see it, but I was in a hurry to get these photos taken and get them loaded. Anyway, you would just slide it in the pocket under the word congratulations. More ideas to post, so tune in the days ahead.

Graduation Gifts

These are the graduation gift bags Brit and I put together for her friends. They are filled with things the girls may forget to take to college with them. The gift bags are from the $1 Target spot and I think they are pretty cute.

Happy Anniversary

I needed a Anniversary card.....something simple but elegant, so I used going gray and white and embellished it with rhinestones and gray ribbon. Of course the flowers are from the Big Shot die cut, and the background is a Cuttlebug embossing plate of raised dots.
