Graduation Season - Sort Of.....FMS432






My daughter recently "placed her order" for 35 graduation cards this year.  I thought I had better get started and made 6 of these using the colors and plaids from the Country Express DSP.  I usually make a variety of designs in small batches so I don't get bored! 

Erin is a college advisor and usually works with students for two years starting in their junior year.  Now her meetings are being done totally on line and many graduation ceremonies have been cancelled.  Such a strange time indeed....more important than ever to keep in touch - especially with a hand written hand made card......


Use whatever shape works for you on Jen Timko's fun sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!


                                       

Stamp Sets: Check You Out, Label Me Bold, Congrats Grad (Pretty Pink Posh), Simply Celebrate Spring (Lawn Fawn)
Paper: Country Club DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Copics, Memento Black, Night of Navy, Garden Green, Soft Suede

Such a cute card, Linda! I adore the smart owl with all these caps. ♥ It's sad to see so many interruptions during this time, but sweetness like this helps to make it better. How fun that Erin gives cards to her students. ♥ She's got an "in" for the best cards.

How cute this is! You are smart to do small batches. I just can't make multiples. I did three alike a couple of weeks ago, and that was it for me. Ha! Adorable owl.

I just love this card Linda! Love that owl and sweet hats! Graduations will look so different this year. So sweet to hear that Erin will still be sending out her annual cards!

I agree - such a shame for all those missing their graduations this year; your card would be a fabulous pick-me-up to send them congratulatory wishes though Linda - I love it!

Such a great design, Linda! I love the colorful hats and the owl is adorable!
Yes, It is so sad for the class of 2020. Uncertain times.

It will definitely be a very strange (and somehow sad) graduation period this year. Hopefully enough, you're there with this fun and cheery card that will bring a smile on a student's face.

Such a fun card. It may not make up for a missed graduation ceremony - but it will definitely bring a smile!
