Time To Shine! BlogHop

Welcome from Kimberly Crawford's!! I bet you enjoyed your time there didn't you!?

You are on the Time to Shine Blog Hop sponsored by CardMaker Magazine. Remember, there's a great crop with tons of cool challenges {and prizes} going on over at CardMaker Forum. Check us out!!!

In sticking with the theme of times in which people shine, I wanted to show you a graduation card I made for our niece, Anna. She's graduating from high school this coming weekend. Even though it's been several years ago, I remember being super excited to graduate from high school, to experience the adventures set out for me. I knew I wanted to go to college but I had no idea back then, three or four majors later, where I would be today. Whew!! Our Anna wants to go to school to be a dentist. We are super proud of her!!!

Here's my sample:

I got the idea from Chrissy Kelly. You can see her original work right here.

Supplies:
Cricut with George and Basics Cartridge (for all the circles)
K & Company paper called Love Birds
Tim Holtz distress ink in Worn Lipstick and Antique Linen
Decorative Label Punch (from Stampin UP!)

I thought I would show you another angle since it looks like some of my circles are rumpled in the above picture. They don't look like that in person...

    1. I guess if the lighting is good enough to apply my makeup,it's good enough to photograph my cards. :) Thanks for stopping by.
