I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Graduation Season and Three Sketch Challenges


I hope you all have had a great weekend.

I usually don't include multiple cards in a single post, but since these are all the same theme, graduation, I'm making an exception.

The first card uses the current Mojo Monday sketch. (Wow, no. 400! Congrats to Julee).

Card two uses the CAS(E) Sketch #126.

Card three uses the MFTWSC #231.

The first card is for my nephew, Ian. He graduates next Sunday from the Northwest Academy in Portland, OR and is off to Macalester College in St. Paul, MN in the fall. The second card is for our friend Kyle. He graduated yesterday from Franklin High in Franklin, MA and is off to UCON in the fall, and the third card is for Kyle's twin sister Kaylee. She is off to the University of Rhode Island in the fall. I'm so very, very proud of these three young adults and know they will do very well at their respective universities.
