Dream...Succeed..Achieve...

Good morning, I'm popping in this morning with a couple more graduation cards.  And...we have reason to celebrate this weekend in our family.  Our wonderful, amazingly talented, beautiful niece, Madeleine, graduates tomorrow!  We'll all be getting together today to celebrate with her.  Looking forward to lots of great family time today.

In honor of Madeleine, I have a couple of graduation cards to share. Her card is actually the first one on this post. (I was a week early for the CAS-ual Friday's challenge :)!) For today's cards, I'm going to enter this in the Moxie Fab Chevron Chic Challenge as well as this week's CAS-ual Friday's challenge.
 The second one is a quick and easy card following our local school colors! I'll be popping this is the mail to a couple local graduates!

Ingredients:  Clear & Simple Grad Stamps; PTI Chevron Stripes; SU Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black Ink, Stickers

oh, Blogger is letting me comment now!! I'm loving these grad cards, Lynn...I have one to make too for my niece in Bellevue and my brother is up visiting this weekend so I need to make it ASAP. I don't have this fabulous grad set so I need to think quick!! I have her school colours and highschool's name...hmmm...I think I need that stamp set! Love the white ink on black...is that embossed and then cut out? Perfect for CAS!!
