Mojo Monday 401 Grad Card


Happy Friday peeps!  Hope you have a great weekend planned!  I needed to make a few more graduation cards so for one of them, I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week:

I was wracking my brain, trying to come up with a different set to use that would encourage and congratulate a new graduate, and I remember the Papertrey set, Star Prints.  I pulled out some star-studded DSP from MME called Fly a Kite, then stamped my images in some matching colors and mounted it on a Pear Pizzazz card base:

I did emboss the smaller panel with the Star EF from SU; added some baker’s twine atop my little zigzag panel, and added a red rhinestone to the center of the star:


And here’s the inside with sentiments from Class of 2015, Something to Say and again, PTI’s Star Prints:


It was fun to mix and match sets!  Thanks for visiting today!

Well, it’s not officially summer here in PA, but you couldn’t tell from the thermometer yesterday…hot & sticky!  I got out the Slip & Slide, extended it a wee bit with another piece of plastic, and Cassidy and her cousins had a blast:

5 YO Trent went at it full blast!


Cassidy was a bit more lady-like!


3 YO Jack never let up…he was like a sliding machine!


And after a few slippery attempts, 2YO Chaz just decided to throw water on everyone! 


Enjoy your day!


  1. Beautiful card! I love the colors.

    1. Lol!!! I went sledding last winter, but throwing myself on wet plastic in a bathing suit???? No way!

  5. You had me with the polka dot star!! This is cute LeAnne. Looks like the kids had a GREAT time!

  6. I think stars are such a great image to use on graduation cards. Love your colorful take on that theme! It's been hot and sticky here too so a slip & slide would be just the thing to cool things off!
