I'm back with another post this week.  I needed to make 2 graduation cards and I was searching u-tube for ideas and came across Debra from had made a graduation cap and tassle.
I liked the way the card looked so I decided to make two. 

The cards are 5x5   The tassles are made from embroidery yarn.  The stamp that I used if from CardzTV.    

This is the inside of the cards.  

I decided to make a card for the inside also.   I used the cart called RECESS for the cap and diploma.

I had a lot of fun making these.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week

My New Great-granddaughter

Its been awhile since I last posted.  I haven't really been crafting much.  I have lots of projects that I want to do and I have all the materials that I need for all the projects, now I just need to start on them.

First off I want to introduce you to my new great-granddaughter. She arrived at 12:36Am June 13th
weighing in at 6lb 13oz 18" long.  the picture below was taken about 15 minutes after she was born.

                                          This is Pheonix Rain Riley  She looks like her older brother.

Next is my baby card that I made watching a video.  Sorry I can't remember you I was watching to learn how to do this style of a card, but I want to thank her and give her credit.  It was easy once you get the cuts right.  Its called a Block Stair Step card.

I used my Explore for cutting the stork,   and the print and cut feature for the scalloped baby circle.
I used a CARDZTV stamp CONGRADULATIONS ON YOUR BABY.  I used some stickers also that I had in my stash.   This one is for a boy.
I really like the way it turned out.  I plan on making more of these as soon as I find the video of this type of cards.

Thanks for looking and have a great week.
