Some Graduation Cards & Brennan's Graduation



I almost forgot the most important one.  This is for my grandson, Brennan who will be graduating from 6th grade on Tuesday.  This is a Stampin Up stamp that I usually pair with balloons for a birthday card, but thought it would be perfect for throwing up his cap.

So Thursday, I got a request for some graduation and Father's Day cards.  I have a box of my cards at my Dentist office.  So like a crazy women, I have been making graduation cards today.  I don't have any stamps so looked for free digi stamps and also found some on clip art.  I colored the owls and some of the caps yesterday and then went to town today putting them together.  Thanks goodness for pattern paper to put these together quickly.
Now I need to make some Father's Day cards.  Not sure if that will go as easily.
