Happy Graduation!

Hello everyone and welcome!
I hope you are having a great day!  My day is going to be kind of busy- so many things on my "to-do" list.  I love to check things off my list, but these days it seems as if I'm adding things way faster than I'm checking them off!

One thing that I recently checked off my list was *Graduation Gifts.  We had so many seniors at our church this year and I've been slow to get my cards finished.  I started out making cards for each senior, but decided I needed to go a different route if I was going to get them finished before they all headed off to college!  Fortunately, I remembered the cute little Gift Card Holder die that I ordered from "My Creative Time" but have never used....LIFESAVER!
I love the way these turned out.....
Recipe:
* I used the "Embossed Gift Card Holder" from My Creative Time to cut out my card from black cardstock. I added a patterned mat to the front of each holder.
* I used my white gel pen to add a few stitching lines.


* The graduation cap is from the Graduates Cutting File from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I added a bit of Stickles in silver to the tassel and Glossy Accents to the button on top of the cap.
* The "Happy Graduation" sentiment and the numbers for 2013 are from the "Follow Your Dreams" stamp set by My Creative Time.

I added a gift card from Best Buy to each of the holders and there you go!  My last 3 graduation gifts finished and checked off the dreaded "to-do" list!

I've enjoyed visiting with you today, but I guess I need to go see what else I can get checked off that list!  Thanks so much for stopping by - enjoy the rest of your day!

Until next time,
