Good Morning. Tuesday again? And April is over? That is 4 months already gone this year. It seems time just flies by. 

At Tuesday Morning Sketches this week we are playing with this fun sketch.

I find it hard to believe my oldest granddaughter is 18 already and graduating from high school this month.  How can she be that old when I haven't aged a bit? HaHaHa!

I like to personalize grad cards in the school's colors. Her school colors are blue and gold. Here is the card I made for her. 

I wanted to use the unbranded grad cap E/F for the background so had to change the orientation of my card to portrait. The stars are all dies from SU. The sentiment is an old one from my collection. I added a grad cap sticker to one of the star points.

While I had all of the supplies out, I made another card for one of the local high school grads. Several local schools consolidated in 1976 which was the bicentennial year so they selected the colors of  red/white/blue and team name of Stars.

  1. Fabulous grad cards. I like the idea of using stars as a design element, so I think I'll make a couple with that in mind. You also reminded me that I'm pretty sure I have a grad cap embossing folder. I will look for that tomorrow and maybe make a couple of cards with it. I make them for the thrift store as I only had a great niece who graduated this year, and her card has already been mailed.

  2. First of all, congratulations on your granddaughter's graduation! Giw exciting! Secondly both cards are super!

  3. Perfect card design for any grad. And using school colors is definitely the way to go. Happy Hugs to you and your granddaughter. Debi

  4. Yes! These are wonderful grad cards!!
