Pinterest Grad Cards

Happy Thursday, peeps!  My friend Billie came over on Monday to make a couple of graduation cards and we needed some ideas, so we trolled Pinterest to get some! I apologize for the photos..they were taken on my kitchen table, LOL!   

Billie's grandson will be graduating soon, and his school colors were navy and burnt orange, so we made a card for him based on this card by demo Doris Denman, found on Pinterest:

We used French Script, stamped on a piece of scrap computer paper to create the diploma;  a couple of Paper Pumpkin sets for the sentiment, and Large Numbers dies for the numbers; the inside used a retired set called Adventure Awaits!

Her nephew will also be graduating from the Philadelphia Police Academy, so we thought stars would be a great theme for his card, based on this card from SUO Challenges; unfortunately, I couldn't figure out which designer actually made the card to give her credit!  We used the Lucky Stars EF, a Nestie star die set and Watercolor Wishes for the sentiment:

We had such a good time stamping together!  Billie was one of my very first demonstrators and has been my stamping companion for over 15 years!

No Cassidy pix today, but I wanted to share the mermaid blanket Dana crocheted for Cassidy...looks warm and toasty, doesn't it?!  Her own pattern too, my clever girl!

Roofers were here on Tuesday and should be finished on Friday...the weather has not been cooperative this week like it was last week!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I don't post comments very often but just wanted you to know how much I look forward to your posts. I always love my daily dose of Cassidy and, of course, those of Dana and you. Dana, your mermaid blanket is absolutely wonderful. LeAnn, your cards are great. Thank you so much for sharing all of this with your followers.

Both of these graduation cards are fantastic! Love the rolled up diploma as the one and the metallic star. Dana's mermaid blanket is out of this world, what a talent she has!!

Both graduation cards are super nice, LeAnne! I struggle with making that kind of card usually but last week I cranked out 2 that just made me sing! LOL Dana did a beautiful job on the mermaid blanket! She is crafty like her mother!!!! All this rain is just depressing and I really hope nicer days are coming soon!

Love these! Graduation cards can be hard and Pinterest has great inspiration. These are both fantastic! Love Dana's crocheted Mermaid tail and I know Cassidy does too! Glad work is progressing on the roof anyway….
