Graduation Cards

Hi everyone! I'm back again! Graduation is probably far from your minds given semesters start in September in America, but for med students here, graduation is early December! Some of my friends have done their 6 years of study (good on them!) and are graduating very soon! In fact, they are starting their work as doctors next week! And to think that I'm going to be the the same this time next year!!! Eeeek!

I bought For the Graduate set from Cecelia not so long ago and it just arrived a couple of days ago (and I'm also happy to tell you that the ATG gun from Sherrie's come too!!!). So I felt obliged to make some graduation cards :)

I actually made three. But I forgot about blogging and had already sealed one into an envelope to be never seen again lol So you will just have to put up with two. I think I should make one for my cousin too. She just finished high school (and she topped the school and was announced Dux! As if being a Head Girl wasn't enough for her!).

Anyway, time to show the cards! A Little Argyle set goes SO well with this set! I was really surprised! This card is Summer Sunrise on Enchanted Evening. Why the weird colour combo (yellow & blue)? Well, it's the colour for my university (Otago) ;)


The next card is a CASE of Maile Belles' lovely card. I changed the colours around slightly and added in the sentiment at the bottom. I really like this CAS look <3
This card also reminded me how much I hate my StazOn black ink pad. It stinks! I've remembered to put the black ink pad into my cart for my next order ;)


Anyway, I've got to rush now. Need to go pop on by the hospital and pick up my intro pack and ID card for Monday. I can't believe my holiday is pretty much over :'( I'll have to make more cards though. That ATG is going to take a wee while to get used to. And people were right when they said it was a beast of a thing! It's MASSIVE! lol

Thanks for popping by!
