Only 9 weeks until HS graduations begin.  My son is graduating this year so I have lots of cards to make.  Friends at school and church are graduating.  I made this card for a friend from school.  I like to theme the cards for the college the graduate plans to attend.  This young man won't be able to attend college :( so I themed it for our HS.  We are the Concord Spiders and he is a Spider through and through!  Our school colors are black and gold and now I wish I had used gold as the main base for the card but it still turned out nice.

I used two KNK files to make it.  The card base is a gate fold card and is from Sam and Hailey Designs (file# JB00231).  I used white card stock for the main base and some spider paper I have for the overlay. The "Congratulations" sentament is part of the file and you use your pen in the KNK to write it. The second file I used is from Beloved Keepsakes (file# BK00264). I just used the graduation cap from the file - there are many more pieces in it.  I cut the cap from a scrap of spider web paper I have.  If you are a Hunger Games fan you need to check out her files series on that topic.

I'm posting the card as part of the Card a Day March challenge.  I think this is the last theme I needed to do a card for this month and it's the last day so I'm just making it :).  THanks for looking.

Happy Easter

I also created this card for the Card a Day blog challenge. I also used paper except for the frame from my November 2011 & January2012 Key Ingredients Kit of the Month from Taylored Expressions. The stamp is another stampin' up stamp.  The charm is an old one I have from A Charming Place which is back in business.

Thanks for looking.

Thought's of you

Here's another card for the Card a Day monthly challenge. I used my October 2011 and November2011 Key Ingredients Kit of the Month from Taylored Expressions . The only pieces not from the kit is the Stampin' Up Whimisal Word stamp and the white frame.

Hello Baby

Card a Day Blog is hosting another fun challenge. Baby cards are the first for this month.  Can't believe I actually need one - lol.  In fact this is the 2nd baby card I've made in the last 4 weeks.  I used my Klic-n-Kut to make this one.The card base and the 3-D butterfly are files by Shelly's Art. The card base is from this month's card sketch challenge on the Paperthreads forum and the 3-D butterfly file you can find in Shelly's store at Paperthreads.  I used a misc piece of two sided card stock for the base and the solid elements on the card. The rest of the pieces were cut from paper I got in my Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients monthly kit.   The gold shimmer is Stampin' Up's champagne mist shimmer paint and the "Hello Baby" is from Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. 

The picture is not the best :(.  Had to take it under my Ott lamp since I need to take the card to work tomorrow.  Thanks for looking.
