More May Stamp of the Month: The Long Way Home

These adorable cards are all made with the May stamp of the month and the Florence collection. Thanks to my swap group for these great "stamples!"

I cannot take credit for any of these lovely cards, and I can't name each individual artist.  Aren't they terrific?  Enjoy the ride!

Graduation Party

As you probably know, our daughter graduated from high school recently.  One of her friends' mom has the great idea to throw a joint graduation party for the kids rather than 10 separate ones.  When one of the moms suggested a superhero theme, we were hooked!  I made photo centerpieces and card boxes for each of our superhero graduates.  I used my CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge and some current and retired CTMH papers to make their individual superhero "shields."  Here are the boys' boxes.
We rented a room with a kitchen at our local state park, Vogel, and had fun decorating with the superhero theme.

One of the moms used her Cricut to make superhero initials to put on a cape for each kids.
Here's my awesome graduate with her amazing cape!
We had a fabulous time celebrating this milestone in their lives!

Just Married!

My dear friend got married today!  Unfortunately we couldn't be there (physically) because our vacation was already planned, but Traci and Stanley, we are with you in spirit and in prayer!
As the wedding is in denim and burlap, I chose a Crystal Blue card base to cut out this 5x7 card with the CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge.  All of the stamping comes from the (retired) Celebrate Love stamp set (in Crystal Blue).
I lined the White Daisy liner with a piece of Magical patterned paper for the bow and blue shimmer trim for the sentiment.  The pretty silver flowers are also retired from my stash.

I wrote their wedding date in the banner on the back of the card.
I also included a certificate for a scrapbook of the wedding and honeymoon photos, which I will make when I return!  Best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs.!

Graduation Cards

If you know me, then you know that our oldest just graduated from high school!  We are really proud of her and her great group of friends.  Below you'll find the graduation cards that I made for the Class of 2016.  They all use the same sketch from Make It From Your Heart and the Smart Pants stamp set.  The first batch use our school colors, purple and gold.  I chose Gypsy card stock and Honey B&T from the Magical paper pack along with the black geometric B&T from La Vie en Rose.
This version uses gold shimmer trim, gold fundamentals assortment, and blue & purple epoxy gems as embellishments.
A girl in our church goes to the rival school in the next county.  Pacifica was a good match for their blue and white color scheme.  The black piece is from the retired Charlotte paper pack.  I used blue shimmer trim and white sequins.
Our final graduate's school colors are teal, black, and silver.  Lagoon card stock, teal shimmer trim, and sequins from the Florence assortment completed her card.
Last Sunday, we celebrated Senior Sunday at church for our three adorable graduates.  Ansley and Sean have known each other since before they were born!
I'm linking up these cards to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Congratulations challenge.  Congrats to the Class of 2016!
