More grads...

Happy Saturday to you guys! I have been struggling this week and then yesterday at work got a horrible migraine! I hate them, but they're made worse by the fact that the meds I take for them make me seriously groggy. Ugh..I just *came out* of my fog about an hour ago from taking the meds yesterday around 5. Yuck...I'm still not well, but these cards had to be made today. They're for a couple of kids at church that are graduating. People always say this, but it feels like they were JUST babies! Wow...where DOES the time go?

Ok, well I'm going to lie back down, but here are the cards. This was my first time using the little Xyron machine (on the black glittery grad cap)I bought at Walmart a few weeks ago. It's simple enough and i'll be using it more. I also love how the scor-tape covered in glitter looks around the edges of the pink card. I got that idea from this card by Nichole Heady. I love love love it. Alright, hope to talk to you guys tomorrow. Have a great night....

Keva, these cards are great...so neat to see how two different cards for masculine and feminine can be so different and yet both classy. Well done! :)
