Abstract Yellow Roses Grad Card

Another graduation card for personal use. Inspirations were “abstract” and college colors.

Coincidentally, the school colors of my high school AND my college were Black & Gold. I spent so much time in black & gold in high school, I never thought I would ever wear it again. I looked down as I was taking the above photo, and  I was wearing a matching shirt.  😉

Cherry and Lilac Floral Mother’s Day Card

This is a Mother’s Day card that I made for my Mom. The “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment is embossed inside.

I am trying to get settled back into a routine since returning from vacation – I have conquered all of my chores, but I am struggling with my creativity. And I can’t seem to get enough sleep! (I think that is more allergy related than jet lag? Maybe just a combination of both.)

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Gina K. Designs, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Sour Apple, inks – Gina K. Designs Amalgam, Cherry Red, Jelly Bean Green, Wild Lilac, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
