Congratulations Are in Order

Standard

A little birdie told me that her family is growing and I am tickled pink (or blue!) for all of them.  I’m sworn to secrecy for now, but that couldn’t stop me from creating a special card in anticipation of the blessed arrival.  In fact, I created two- one pink, one blue

There are lots of great stamps available, but this Happy Hoppers stamp from Stampendous popped right into my head.  Bunny Luv is a very simple image, but it projects such emotion.  Can’t you just feel the love?  I put together a very clean layout to keep all the attention on the wonderful bunnies.

Congratulations Graduation

Standard

Another graduation! I’ve been pretty lucky to celebrate a few graduations this season.  It’s been a lot of fun to put together a few different card variations of the same theme.  I made this card for a fine young man who I’m glad to call a friend.

I put this card together with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #197 “Congratulations” in mind, so I broke out the Graduate stamp and went to work.  I decided to go with the traditional black gown to keep it on the masculine side. I gave it a modified tri-fold and used a fancy die cut to make the red, white and black palette a little more interesting.
